I don’t think that is uncommon and the Bucs could have promoted him to Altoona in 2011 but for some reason decided to keep him at Bradenton.  I don’t remember reasoning for that, but if he plays well at Altoona he could be promoted in 2012.

His high walk rate is a great indicator already that he has good major league potential as a hitter.
The power was bound to come, and it looks like it is now.
As long as this guy just keeps that patient hitting style, he will continue to advance talent-wise and level-wise.
That hamate bone thing though may rob him of some power this coming season until it is fully healed though, something we have seen happpen with many other hamate bone injuries in the past. It is usually the second season after the surgery when the hitter finally gets back to normal. He will need to guard against letting that change his plate approach in any way.
