I mean, stranger things have happened. Not unusual to see relievers succeed out of nowhere but we have a total of 15 innings this year between 2 players, who have had zero ML success despite being older, and we are already penciling them into future BPs?
I just don’t see the logic there. You can be happy with what you see out of them without going overboard about their future prospects within the organization.
Younger version of those players. CF- Hays, RF- Santander, Not two Hardy but Iglesias at SS, Nunez has already homer 31 and drove in 90. If they surround him with better hitters he could improve - 1B. Mountcastle, Rutschman in the system. Plus Alberto, Ruiz, Severino, Sisco
The one issue I have with this is that he performed better early on vs later. In other words, you would have expected him to struggle early and get better as the season went on if mono was such an issue.
Im willing to give him the benefit of the doubt based off what the scouting community feels about him but I certainly don’t think anyone believes he performed to the level you would have expected him to.
