Not a huge difference in age and my point was players can improve off minor league stats.My whole point was trying to prove a guy near or in his mid 20's career isn't already set because of what his minor league numbers had been.
I think Barney could improve his batting average and maybe some doubles power, and he could steal you 10-15 bases , he's never going to hit for any real power or be an all star .
<<Not a huge difference in age>>
in what they accomplished at 22? At 26? man, i'd say it doesn't GET much "huger", lol
"Well offense is much more important than defense so who cares if he is average on defense. "
Wrong, unless you are talking about FANTASY baseball or the silly DH rule. Defense is huge.
Not quite your criteria you asked for , Just off the top of my head I picked Ronald Torreyes who is only 19 and only has seen A ball ....
.935 ops after 2 pro seasons
I wouldn't be upset at all if he's not starting this year.My whole point to this was not to just use power numbers like OPS and not to say a guy can't improve off his minor league numbers just because he was a rookie at 25.
What is the average age for rookies that stick in the majors that played college ball?
