Starling Marte, more power, less defensive obviously. 

Good one but Matte was 23 in AAA. He also walked about twice as much (28 walks in 99 games) and his OPS was 7th.  Another good comp.

He was 22 in AA, 3.8% BB rate. Mountcastle 3.5% in AAA at the same age. Mountcastle had a 6.1% BB in AA last year.

Would you agree that all of the comps mentioned didn't all of a sudden learn to take a walk once they got to the majors. I mean, I don't think it's possible for him to walk less than he is now but it seems doubtful that he walks 40-50 times at the ML level.

He's not going to walk 8-10%, but I wouldn't be surprised at 5-6% in his prime (25-28yo). If he hits for power in the majors (which he will), he will walk more than he is this season.

Mountcastle is a fine hitter and will produce MLB value.

It looks even better than the stats tell you, he's not sneaking groundball doubles down the line or soft liners into the gap, he's blasting the ball, rockets into the wall, dude hits the ball hard.

Yeah, not that it means much in terms of predicting major league success, that scouting term mostly comes from separating prospects from suspects in short looks. I would bet he has a number of 110mph+ batted balls though.
