He's gonna be a solid major league player IMO. Will probably see some 20-20 years but he does everything very well. and I'm looking forward to seeing him up in the big leagues. Needs to cut down on his strike out though a lot.
I was wondering what everyone in the know's thoughts are on B Jax. Personally, I have never seen him play and by all accounts he is a patient hitter, who does a lot well and nothing great. I know he K's a ton, and also has a good make up. But I was looking up his minor league #'s and they look pretty pedestrian. What are your thoughts??

Cutting down on the K's isnt as simple as it may seem. Him consciously trying to make more contact will almost certainly have a negative effect on his OPS; Trying to make more contact will create more weak contact and cause him to not work the count as deep as he does, leading to less walks.
IF he can maintain his current K rate (something like 23%) I have no problem with it, especially coming from the leadoff hitter.
