Baseball America on Andrew McCutchen

Baseball America:

McCutchen isn't far behind [Tigers prospect Cameron] Maybin. Though he's 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds, he has more raw power than many clubs gave him credit for. He's batting .325/.388/.492 with five homers, 21 RBIs and two steals in 31 games at low Class A Hickory. Best known for his top-of-the-line speed and often compared to Marquis Grissom, he might be more along the lines of Tim Raines--with more pop than Raines had.

For whatever it's worth, that's high praise indeed. Tim Raines plus more power is a sure Hall of Famer.
