He shouldn't be a major leaguer yet. His 2.7% BB rate this year in the minors isn't going to cut it. Plate discipline isn't something that just turns on like a light switch. And it certainly isn't something to be learned in the majors. I don't think Dayan is wired to become a walk machine, but I do think he needs to become more selective if he plans on having a successful major league career. Especially considering the defensive value he lacks.
