So he strikes me a bit as a flavor-of-the-day type. And when you add in long swing, catcher, injury history, and relatively low BA. . . I guess I'll temper myself somewhat.
Estalella was the 631st player taken in the draft. Saltamacchia the 33rd.

You're talking about a plug vs a Kentucky Thoroughbred.
