Not everyone in the AFL is a top prospect. A big chunk of this league is never going to play in MLB.
If Lorenzen doesn't right himself before the end of the AFL season, this will be a terrible disappointment. I'm guessing there's not a long list of players who flopped in the AFL and then went on to be impact players in MLB.
