Assuming the scouting scale is somewhat normalized, then hitting close to league average would put him closer to a 50 rather than a 20. I don't think it is outrageous to suggest his power is halfway between 'average'  and 'abysmal' .
It would also mean there are NOT a lot of guys with 20 power. Assuming that a 20 on the scale is two standard deviations away from the mean, that would leave you with around 2.5% of the guys in the league with 20 power.
The only way Hamilton is a 20 power guy is if the scouting scales are skewed to the point where they are damn near meaningless.
