That comp doesn't wash. Borchard had big power but real K problems. He had two big challenges: Learning to control the strike zone and making his swing less mechanical. He was not able to do either.
Flowers dominates the zone. Look at his walk numbers. He also has a solid swing. The questions for him are how does he handle the jump from A ball and will he find a defensive position. He's more like a Garko or Hafner than a Borchard.
