So not ready to replace our .412/.500/.912 hitting third baseman yet?

Only if you want to blow up the team.

Kieboom back in the lineup tonight, went 4-5 with a triple.  BA up to .333, OPS up to .924.

Yeah PWC, still a small sample size.

Followed up his monster game the other night by going 3-4, HR, 3Rbis, and a walk.  Now batting .375 with a 1.153 OPS

~200 more OPS points and he'll be able to catch his MLB big brother

I'll guess he's a 2d half call up if Dozier doesn't get going or if Trea is out longer than anticipated.

Very encouraging, although we should temper expectation a TINY bit since his early stats are based a little bit on a .600 BABIP :) But still, drawing walks and hitting for power - I'll take it!

Also temper it with the understanding that the entire team is raking, and it's likely they're facing some weak pitching.

And it's the PCL. Plus half their games so far have been in Salt Lake and Vegas, which are launch pads even by PCL standards (unless the new park in Vegas is meaningfully different in that respect, which seems unlikely).
