You can't judge potential off of a singular statistic. Viciedo was consistently overmatched at the plate. Those 25 homers were a very small portion of his at bats. If a guy has zero chance in 350+ at bats out of 500 or so, you can't seriously think a professional scout is going to point at 25 singular instances and say "hey, this guy's gonna be something". That's not the way it works.
So are everyone's HR's???

And yes, I believe that after 2012 there were scouts that thought he would be a useful piece....not a great/superstar player, but a useful power bat that was young and had potential to get better.
