While Yorman continues to be an interesting prospect, I believe the Reds should not count on him being a big bat in the future. There just aren't many guys who are big offensive threats who strike out as much as he does while not taking many walks. It's hard to believe that Yorman is still only 20 years old, but his career has been stuck in neutral since he had the good, BABIP aided Billings season in 2010.
Sure, it's nice that Yorman has added some pop this year, and I do think that he should continue to be an everyday starter in Bakersfield, but I don't count him as a Top 10 prospect with that K:BB ratio.
