    The correct answer is Logan Morrison, rocking a -0.7 WAR in April.

    You guys, Vladdy is hitting .362 with a .234 ISO and sub-9% K rate as a teenager in AA. WTF.

    When was the last time a bat looked this special in the high minors? I literally don’t remember anyone checking so many boxes from a pure offensive point of view. There’s very real chance we have the next Pujols on our hands.

    So you're saying Vlad is actually 25?

    Mike Trout was striking out twice as much in AA at the same age. There's a pretty real chance that Vlad will be the best hitter in baseball some day, when guys like Trout, Altuve, Harper, Betts, etc are fading in their 30s.

    Vlad is the LeBron James of baseball

    We need to get talent around him

    Thankfully he was born in Canada and has proper documentation.

    Not sure how many people are aware of this feature on BP. I've added the link below - shows a list of all the relevant pitching matchups in the minor leagues with the ranks of the pitchers in top 101 and top 10s (if applicable) as well as the amount of 101s and 10s on each team. Pretty neat!

    He could be 35 as long as he provides us with 80 WAR over the next 15 seasons.

    Only shooting for 80? Trouts provided the Angels with close to 60 in 7 seasons. Vladdy is looking pretty special right now.

    Tatis Jr. is now over 100 ABs in AA and he's been terrible. By no means am I trying to slam him as a prospect but when compared to our own Top 10 teenage wunderkind it shows just how good Vlad is.

    Pujols was worth 53.4 WAR his first 7 seasons in the Majors. I think people need to taper their expectations of Vlad.

    His AA stats have been horrific. It's looking like they rushed him, shouldn't have skipped him over A+.

    No, no. Taper them. I'm going to start with an expectation of 4 and taper that up to 10 by midseason.
