Are his doubles speed doubles or deep fly doubles?  Doubles in young players are a good sign of emerging power.

i think both.  i listen to a lot of our minor leaguers games and the hagerstown announcing crew is usually :az: about his raw power.  his homers and stolen bases are low, but i think that's expected.  they will come in time.

if he works at everything hard and can live up to his potential, i think hood will have numbers something like this:

.280 AVG, 25 HR, 90 RBI, 15 SB.

I haven't seen much of him, but if everything goes right I say he could be a Torii Hunter lite.  A #3/5/6 hitter with similar numbers (not as good of a glove though).
