Solid BB-Rate, but otherwise yuck
Meanwhile, Arraez is right on Gordon's tailgate at AA

Let's watch that sample size over the rest of the month for these two players.
My money would be on Arraez passing Gordon on the prospect board sans bias. For some, I think he already has.
Gordon has the pedigree and the bonus money.
Have you seen Arraez? He's only a little more inspiring athletically than Willians Astudillo and even more diminutive, he has a bum knee and is not a MLB SS, maybe not even a 2B or 3B.
Don't get me wrong, I hope he's the 2nd coming of Altuve, because this kid can definitely hit. I just don't see him passing Gordon on the prospect board- Gordon will get the first shot to stick. Gordon's problem appears to be long-term stamina, as his 1st half stats are Top 100 worthy- perhaps there's a diet deficiency or metabolic malady?
