this has been my guys for some time now...
I hope we get a chance to see him play... He may be like the cubs kyle schwarber where he does not have a position but the old saying is if you can hit we'll find a place for you...

Beast. In an organization that does not produce beasts

He’s 2 for 3 already today with a 2B (his 7th) and a BB. He’s hitting .413 with an OBA well north of .500, and he rarely K’s. Yes, it’s only 21 games, but still. I’m not sure why anyone in the Eastern League is still pitching to him. I’m guessing they want to give him a full season in MILB to let him get more comfortable defensively. But wow. The kid can hit, and he hits bombs.
