Re: Billy Hamilton named top prospect from the AFL
Yeah. Hamilton may not have any power but he doesn't have a slap-hitter's plate approach for the most part. He's got some patience, and working deep into counts is going to lead to both walks and strikeouts, as others have pointed out. If pitchers aggressively pound the zone on him and he adjusts, the walks will go down but so too should the strikeouts, if he's getting more hittable pitches and not getting to two strikes as often.
Which is a long-winded way of saying "danged if I know how it's going to turn out."
Not all who wander are lost
