That said, he is showing power and looking solid, but he is a long way (2 years) from being close to the big leagues.
By "finally" he also means he never showed power in college, either. I guess that doesn't matter, though...

Yes I was referring more to the power than anything. And yes I know he had limited power in college, but he also has the frame to put on significant muscle mass in my opinion. He has a very good, "line drive" swing IMO and while I don't see him as a 30 to 40 HR guy, I don't think 20 plus is unreasonable.

Again, all this may be moot. As has been said, he's AT LEAST 2 years away and who knows if he'll even stay in this organization.
