Trov Verified Member Posted March 28 Share Posted March 28 I know season has not started, and E-Rod is coming off of missing significant time due to injury. However, I was thinking about how high I am on him, mainly the combo of eye and power. Rarely will you see numbers like his at any level. He hit 9 HR in just under 200 plate appearance, but he walked 57 times only striking out 52. That is crazy for someone of his age. It was a HR every 15 at bats, or 1 per 22 plate appearances. His OBP was .492, and this was in a pitcher friendly league. If he continues to have an eye like that and contact like he has I could see him move very quickly. I bet he ends up in AA this year, but if there is a ton of injuries to OF like last year, I do not think it is outside the realm that they give him a shot at the majors. This is only if he does what he did last year and injuries. I am not expecting majors, but I think it is in realm of possibilities. He may only be 20, but many superstars have made it to majors at that age. GNess, Richie the Rally Goat, DocBauer and 5 others 8 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
