Maybe the next Mike Trout?
I am happy that Ervin looks good so far in Billings. However, I'd caution that he is SUPPOSED to be crushing it there: remember even Chad Mottola had an .882 OPS in his debut season in Billings.
The fact of the matter is impact college hitters drafted in the first round should likely be starting in full season ball. If they don't, they should be crushing the ball.
Part of the reason I'm in favor of promoting Ervin to Billings if he continues to crush it over the next couple weeks is not because he's crushing it in such a small sample size, but rather the fact that he probably should have started in Dayton in the first place (as I have expressed in the past).
