They completely pumped him up in 2003 after his stellar showing in Bristol. But I really think we should take stats from Rookie Ball with a grain of salt, there are tons of guys that hit .330 plus at that level. He struggled somewhat in Kanny last year, and regressed even more when he was traded. He's got some upside and his secondary numbers are somewhat solid, but he'd be lost in the shuffle in our system. More than likely an afterthought after Anderson and Chris Young.
