Wow, good sign that they feel comfortable challenging him with Bradenton. If he plays well there we could have another legit much needed power prospect.

He jumped to West Virginia at the end of the year. The talent level in State College and West Virginia isn’t that much of a difference, so it’s not a huge jump from State College to Bradenton.

I didn’t think they would jump him over A ball. He did spend most of last season in State College, right?
