You can't predict his future from that Notin, or say he wouldn't have a position if he has played so many in his young career. You may as well predict Bogy and Middy will be sub par as well, not too mention maybe less versatile.
Yeah, you kind of can make predictions from past production. Minor league .732 OPS, with a 579/146 K/W usually means you can't hit.
An error rate of 1E/3GS equates to about 56-57 errors a year at SS. 2B equates to about 54 errors a year. Not a top-100 prospect. 70% SB rate is maybe okay.
I don't like writing anyone off, but there are plenty of guys in our organization with better prospects.
Fair enough guys, you feel minor league numbers dictate a players future and I completely disagree so lets compare Middy, JBJ, Bogy and Lakes Stats at the the end of next season.
Every year our organization has a young prospect or two everyone gloats over because of the hype but the reality is very few in recent years have impacted our lineup in any way or since been traded. I'm not a big fan of Baseball America and other sources that base their predictions and rankings on past experience at the lower levels.
The intersting part is how you do not like Bogaerts' .943 Fldg pct at Ss in MiLB and then defend Lake and his .924
Rookies very rarely come into the league with great fielding percentages and also tend to SO a bit. I mentioned Lake as a possible platoon to help Bradley against lefties. His OF fielding percentage last season was a combined .976 in the in the majors not .943 Also instead of playing CF Lake could slide over to RF where his percentage is a little higher and allow Victorino to play CF. Being the fact he is alaso under team control through 2019 makes him even more intriuging and at a much lower cost. It would be great to have two youngsters under the age of 23 in Bogy and Lake that destroy LHP.
JBJ is only at .983 in his small sample size in the majors.
Nava/Gomes in LF
Victorino/Lake in RF
Could cover our OF quite well offensively
