Zimmy also was already considered a top flight defender who had a solid bat projection. I believe there was surprise that his bat developed as quick as it did, but there was really no surprise about his d. Can the same be said for Rendon? Also, with the talent we are currently fielding, there's no need to rush him to the Show. I say treat him like we did Harper. If he forces his way to the big club, let it happen, otherwise, let him develop at medium pace... :lol:

Rendon hit about .170 in AA. Zimmerman might have zipped through the minors, but that's no reason to assume that Rendon can advance as quickly. There is no gaping hole in the Nats lineup. Let Rendon have most of the season to develop.
