I think that the sample size for Mitchell is still far too small to really be able to make that comparison. Give it a handful of games and that SB/AB can change radically.

Nobody's arguing that he doesn't have the tools to become a great base stealer, just that at this point in his development he's not worth calling up to be a base stealing specialist at the end of the year. They'd be better off having De Aza in that role cause they don't have to worry about his arbitration clock starting with the call up, he's got a little more experience, and he's incredibly quick as well
