I am not saying he can't be of value to the organization. Maybe he turns into a Miguel Rojas type. But I don't see him ever being a Major Leaguer.
I think you're underselling his bat.
Miguel Rojas has never OPS'd over .665. His slash numbers at Billings (albeit at age 19) were .183/.243/.245.
While I realize Vincej's numbers were largely BABIP-driven, he's a different caliber at the plate than Rojas. Last year at Pepperdine, he OPS'd .848, followed by .826 in Billings.
I've witnessed this debate before and know you'll argue this ad nauseam. My concluding point: We're picking longshots at this point. A plus-glove SS with some moxie and chance to hit has some value to the organization.
