That's pretty encouraging considering his age.  I'm not sure why the prospect ranking services dropped him down the rankings at the end of the year.  Well, I have two guesses, neither one of them particularly flattering to the baseball prospect press.   His numbers in the AFL at 19 are better than Corey Seager's, for example, who was born the same time of year and hadn't even made it to AA yet at that point.  That made Seager a top-40 prospect that winter.

He’s got no power.   That’s why.

He's 19, 6'2", and 190 lbs. He can grow into some power. For comparison, he has about the same power grade as Trea Turner did.

That's one of the two reasons, and it's not a particularly good one.  Victor Robles hit 9 homers in A ball at age 19.  He just hit 17 as a 22-year-old MLB rookie.  Garcia's a big guy who hit 22 doubles this year.  It'll come.

Package him and someone else off for Kris Bryant if we cant resign Rendon.

Ride the iron while its hot. Kris is an AS caliber player.
