    After a little debate... Klinker. Success at high level at 24. Less hits than IP and more K's than IP.

His trial at 1B was not that successful but his 4 errors there are to be expected for playing a new position.
    I don't consider fielding % to be a valuable gauge of a player's defensive prowess. You can't get an error if a pop up lands 20 feet in front of you...

    Fielding percentage hardly guages defensive value.
    While Dorn plays everything that he gets to fairly well, his speed prevents him from getting to too many balls. He wouldn't be a bad play in our small park but at a spacious field he would be below average. I would like to see him get more reps at 1B as he is destined to be a platoon player and being able to backup at 1B would enhance his value greatly. While I think he can be a productive player, I can hardly agree that he is an average major league left fielder when he moves like Sean Casey.

    I went with Dorn here as well. His .337 OBP (30 walks) is pretty nice.
