I agree that he's held his own, considering his age.cardsfantx wrote:36.4%; you have to use plate appearances, not ABs if you're going to talk about SO percentages to make sure you include every type of PA; and as pihns pointed out, a wRC+ of 97 at that level.
that's damn good IMO for a just turned 18 year old kid against...well "men"
Initially I was simply looking at his last 10 games, to see how he's progressed. In his last 10 games, he struck out 19 times and walked only 3, in 37 at-bats (40 plate appearances). He his just .108 in those last 10 games. So, he really struggled with contact, which was really my only point. I've believed in the kid since day 1, and been excited about him. That hasn't changed, but he'll need time.
