Close, Slate, but for Haiku you need 5 -7- 5 pattern:

Hood is a project.
Needs high level seasoning.
Rendon's a prospect.

I'm not his biggest fan, but he produced well in the two years before this one when he dealt with injury. He's got all the physical tools in the world, he's shown the beginnings of using his body to hit for power and he's developed a propensity for getting on base. That's a good prospect. You're referring to a Brian Goodwin/Anthony Rendon/Matt Skole level prospect right now.

Almost none of this is true, by the way. He had one year as a 21-year old in high-A where he did all of this, and has done almost none of it at any other time. He's a corner OF who's stolen more than 6 bases in a season once, and has had an ISO of more than .100 once in 3 years of full-season ball.

He also does not have "all the physical tools in the world". If he did, he would be able to play CF, steal more bases, project for more than slightly-above-average power, be known for a great arm, or something else that indicated "all the physical tools in the world".

He has decent tools that might project (in an ideal world) to 15-20 steals and a .350/.475 OBP/SLG from a corner OF. He's several years away from doing that. He might turn into Justin Maxwell, in other words, which would have gotten me excited in 2007. However, in our organization right now a C+ guy like that is a non-prospect.

Only thing I can say about Hood, having seen him play just one game in person, is, he's a mountain of a man and has an MLB body right now.

Then again, I'm sure Bernadina did as well.... So your mileage will vary.

But Bernie at least had his speed and glove which would have translated even if his hitting had not improved.

For all you 'Hood-heads' out there, MASN has a new writeup on Hood.  Talks about him being healthy now and having more of a feel for the game.

Outfield is set for years (span is under contract through 2014 with a team option in 15),  Harper and Werth are here longer than that

Yep. After 2015, we'll have Perez in CF, Goodwin in LF, and Bryce in RF

he can always be a 4th/5th outfielder for us, or someone who comes up in case of injury. 

but i want to see him sustain this success over the course of an AA season.

Getting a little worried Hood has finally plateaued as a prospect.

He's had nearly 500 ABs in AA and still only has 3 HRs plus 130Ks and an OBP below .300 to show for it.

Hope I'm wrong.

last year his injury really dampened his season.  but yeah, he hasn't shown much power this season and needs to improve his numbers.

Guess he reads the forum.

He is on a tear recently.  Has a homer and double tonight.

Hope this is a sign of things to come.

That was his first bomb of the year in over 150+ ABs. Kind of puzzling with a guy his build. He doesn't hit for power nor average, and doesn't steal a lot of bases.

I think he's finally healthy.  Also outside of superstars like Harper/Rendon/etc, the jump to AA is the hardest to take.  Ask any baseball guy.
