Another advanced bat to ball polished hitter who had really good success this season and also against some top pitchers like Leiter. His college coach says he's the best right handed hitter he's ever coached and he coached D.J. LeMahieu. He's going to be limited to second base most likely due to his arm, but he sounds like a guy who can move quickly to the big leagues.
You're absolutely right. Way worse control than in college. Only walked a little over 4 per 9 innings at T A&M. Maybe Miami was smart to pass on him and take Max Meyer. But I don't prefer short righthanders.
For me, I thought he would cut his walks and keep his dominate strikeout stuff when he pitched professionally full time. A reasonable assumption..
The guy is also 6'4" and over 200 lbs. He's a horse. Watch his video.
