Re: July 2 International Signing Period
I just personally see him progressing as more of a Dave Sappelt than a Jose Altuve. Altuve is certainly proving to be more of an exception than a standard. Sappelt was a similar type of hitter that was considered to have sufficient power and contact abilities to hit in the upper minors.
Yet this season, he has posted a .650 OPS in the PCL league with his BAPIP mostly normalized at .280. He's a similar guy IMO that just doesn't have the projection to improve at the same rate as the average minor league prospect.
