Sure, but to be fair to Lutz he moved up to AA mid-season and sometimes guys need time to adjust to a new league and level. That's why I was pleased to see Lutz get hot in the AFL, shows me he could be ready to feast on AA pitching next year.
Lutz did very well at Billings, Dayton, and Bakersfield. He has been a consistent performer and my vote for him is based on an expectation that he will do well at AA next year.
