Or, are you devaluing the prospects behind him?
yes on the latter
I think that you have a great point on the Larson comparisons. And FL has another problem-- Miley likes Larson, whereas Miley's not in FL's corner.
On the plus side, he's very young, he plays an impact position, he's gotten ML atbats at a young age, he worked hard to come back quickly from a nasty injury, and he was better in his second go-around. He's boom or bust, like a pitcher and not like most young hitters. So he's ranked within a bunch of the pitchers.
I forgot Olmedo. He's Lopez-lite.
