Until he faces Major League pitching, we just don't know.
I guess it makes sense to doubt that a hitter won't be able to make the same adjustment that clearly inferior hitters were able to make. If the Sox can't distinguish, to the tune of 68 million dollars, between a fully developed hitter who can or cannot hit MLB pitching, then we have serious problems. It's not like they speculatively signed a prospect like Viciedo.
