Re: Minor-League Player of the Day
Regarding Arias . . . Redsof72, if you're around, I believe I recall you saying last year that Arias was well behind the skill level of the Midwest League. Do you see a difference this year? Has the switch to the outfield helped? (And apologies if I've paraphrased you incorrectly.)
Anybody else on Arias? We know he's athletic and has a strong swing. Any other recent impressions?
