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.
Mike Trout hit .245 in the AFL in 2011. Mike Trout was the best player in baseball in 2012.
Lorenzen's throwing more pitches than he's ever thrown and is likely throwing a bunch of off speed pitches he's not yet comfortable with. His stats are pretty close to irrelevant IMO.
