Well, he's got slightly better wheels and much better base stealing ability than BA. He also has a better/smoother swing than Brian. As far as power goes, no, he hasn't done it in college which is why he has fallen so far from his HS days as it was his #1 asset. However, I think he can be a 15 or so guy in the bigs, which is pretty much BA power exactly. I think he projects to more of a leadoff hitter right now as a ceiling, which isn't exciting for a guy advertised like he was but it's always nice to have those prospects. Good fielding guy who will hit for average and steal some bags, sounds like a guy to take a chance on. That or we could spend the 500-750k on a utility man.
