Top rising prospect — Kemp Alderman, Ole Miss
Alderman was ranked the No. 66 prospect in our Preseason College Top 100, and he's a guy who could certainly see himself climbing up draft boards with a strong showing during conference play. Alderman, a 6-foot-3, 250-pounder, has formed from a power hitter into a complete hitter with massive raw power. How good has Alderman been so far this season for one of the nation's premier offenses? He's hitting .391 (he hit .286 last season) with three doubles, eight home runs and 28 RBIs. He also has walked 11 times and struck out just 10, and is carrying a 1.287 OPS. His OBP is almost 100 points better than where he finished last season as well. It's an expected rise for the talented junior slugger.
I think you should go back and re-read the many threads that turned into Frazier threads. There are absolutely people here who not only agree with it, applauded the move. Either way, I don't want this to turn into another Frazier thread.
I certainly agree with your last part of that sentence though. He's going to play, but if there is a day where Frazier is for some reason starting at a corner outfield position while Stowers sits the bench and Stowers isn't dinged up, it will compound the head scratching.
