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's defense was given a plus rating, some even saying plus-plus. His bat really isn't in question either -- just his health. So to say the FO should cap him from moving up simply because of games played is a bit silly. RZO had pushed all his first-rounders through the system pretty quickly (except for his 2011 class).
