What is everyone opinons on him? I've watched alot of the Bats games this year, and he interest me. He's not some great prospect (which you will see by his stats), but he interests me.
He's 25, and fairly big (6-4, 225). He's not putting up very good numbers, but he is one of those toolsy guys.
In 114 AB's in AA this year, he posted a line of .272/.325/.351/,676 line. However, since his promotion to AAA he has really improved his walk rate, and hit for better power. His line in AAA is .238/.343/.404/.747. He has done a really nice job of recognizing pitches out of the zone and taking walks, which is shown by his over 100 BA/OBP split. The problem is he strikes out a ton. In only 265 combined ABs in the minors this year, he has struck out 89 times. However, he has always had a good walk rate with a career .253 averae, but .360 OBP. His major assest is defensive. He has amazing range in CF, and a strong throwing arm. His D is 2nd to none. In June he is posting a .264/.368/.458/.827 line. He also has good wheels and has 15 steals this year.
What is everyone's thoughts on this guy? If Dunn and/or Griffey gets traded, do you think there is a chance we could see him in September?
