Not saying that can't happen but I don't see how he's in our top 10 until he learns how to hit at least a little bit.
He probably has the highest ceiling in the system. He oozes tools. He started off this year ridiculously hot in Kanny, but soon cooled down and then got injured. Yes he is raw, but most scouting publications were heaping praise on him for the adjustments he made to his game. He's probably be around 6ish on my list.
