Of course these guys are all still young his current production at such a young age shows a lot of promise.
Agreed. Fortunately, players with a nice stroke, sometimes the power develops with maturity. So if there's one element of a young hitter's game I don't mind missing at 19, it's the power; especially if they're a line-driver hitter.
