I may have been mistaken. I thought he was still 17 which would have given him three full years in the minors before he turned 21. But his birthday is in January. So I will revise and say he'll make his debut before his 22ND birthday.
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
