We also have a good group of hitters at Short-Season which is a level above him. As a triple digit thrower, he must have had mechanical or mental blocks because he cannot seem to find the plate – mechanics and mental prep are even more important in hitting. 21 already, playing in the GCL, and batting barely Mendoza is not what I would think of as a prospect.

I’m not reading too much into this season. He better show up raking next year though.
