And if you look at the Sox top ten prospects none of these guys has spent significant time at AAA and most have only spent a little time at AA. The new guys, along with Fulmer, all got rushed to the majors last year after moving from AA to AAA to the bigs with very little time spent at AAA and less than a year spent at AA/AAA combined. It won't hurt any of them to get in all or most of the year at the AAA level (or maybe AA for Moncada) to work on finishing their product so it is ready for the majors in 2018.

If they are ready for the majors at some point... great... bring them up. Otherwise, let them gain some experience against more experienced players in AAA and bring them up in September in preparation for 2018.

September works out pretty nicely for this purpose, too. The month starts with a 10-game homestand to get everybody acclimated, and then there are road trips to Kansas City, Detroit, and Cleveland. I'm glad that the September call-ups will be able to get a feel for Kauffmann Stadium, Comerica Park, and Progressive Field.

Another frustrating weekend for Beer, South Carolina pitched around him for the entire 3 game set. Still managed to hit 2 home runs. Current slash:

.265/.537/.647

In 34 at bats, has already walked 18 times and has been hit twice.

I live a long walk away from Founders Park, home of the South Carolina Gamecocks. I was unable to attend Sunday's game so I asked a friend of mine who was going to scout Seth Beer for me. He told me after the game "I liked everything about him except the uniform he was wearing." Anyway here's an account of the game.

Another rough series for Beer against Notre Dame this weekend. Got pitched around all weekend and started forcing some at bats and went 1 for 10. Also committed his first error of the season.

Slash line drops to: .229/.486/.563 with a 20:7 BB/K ratio.

The Harper Treatment from last season made its way down to NCAA.

It will be interesting to see if Seth is mature enough to just accept the fact that he's not going to see very many hittable pitches and just learn to accept the walks.

The .229 is discouraging, but you wonder if he could drop a few spots if the Sox don't finish with pick 1.

That said, the Slash lines are still really solid, he is showing a ton of patience as it is.

Is it common for good college hitters to have a ridiculous OBP like Beer despite a poor BA?
