    He has been fantastic to start the year. Maybe he is finally fully healthy and everything is coming into focus for him

    That would be a monster. I'd gladly take that. In his prime, with plate discipline, Jones could have been a 6+ WAR player. He was between 4-5, consistently, without it.

    Alford's improved K rate at AA is an excellent sign. He could really be a kickass leadoff hitter if he can keep his K:BB gains.

    And Vladito may already be too good for the MWL. He's going to get to Dunedin as an 18 year old.

    I'm not seeing the 30 HR power in Alford.

    His swing isn't geared for that, but he has the body for it. I think 20 HR is a more reasonable ceiling.

    Alford has to show more power or else the walk rates will trend down. It's easier to walk in the minors if you're the best hitter in the lineup but in the bigs he won't be and pitchers will be in the zone every pitch against him.

    It's helping Alford so far that he has McBroom behind him in the lineup....it was a good move to get him out of the leadoff spot. I think we're all influenced by Alford's sideways numbers last year....if you go by the second half alone, you see improved pitch selection and power.
    He's still learning, but I think the time in Arizona last fall did wonders for his game. Everyone in the org lauds his work ethic and commitment to getting better.

    I would just throw last years numbers out the window as he was playing through numerous injuries. We will see what he can do this year, healthy. So far so good.
