Is looking like a fairly legitimate prospect. He didn't show power in his first season, but hit a ton of doubles as a 23 year old this year at Lynchburg. Since his promotion to Altoona he hasn't kept the power, but he is still hitting and has a decent walk rate. He is on an eight game hitting streak while he is 13/29 (all singles) and three walks.
Basically, there are two questions I want to ask in this post: can he play second base and is his bat legit? He is playing third now, but WTM still has him listed as a second baseman--just didn't update this or is there something behind it? I know there has been a lot of worry about his defense, but qualitatively (with the exception of range, maybe), I feel second base is easier to play than third. His bat would be more valuable at second and he'd have an easier path to the majors.
Does he hit the ball hard? Is he athletic enough to possibly improve with the glove? I just haven't seen him play, and if I try to think about the 2010 roster I'd love to put him at 2B. Is this feasible?
