Maybe the rust is finally starting to shake off for Yogurt here...

Maybe no one should have been freaking out about less than a month's worth of DSL games fresh off signing a new contract. Really, no one should give a shit about DSL games in general, but certainly not in this context.

You don't think that sucking in the DSL has context?

Not when it’s such a small sample and you’ve been away from live pitching for an extended period of time.

The Knights have a good chance of extending their season.  2+ WC against the team they're playing now and -1.5 for the division lead.

I really like his swing.  

Agreed.  I think he was a very good 2nd round pick.  I see him in RF on the South side in a couple years.  I think his doubles power will play very nicely in the bottom third of the order when we are ready to contend.

I wasn't angry with the pick though I was really hoping for Griffin Conine.  I think he's going to develop into a 20+ HR guy.  He does a tremendous job of staying inside the baseball and he's going to learn what pitches he can drive out of the yard.  It just takes a little time with his approach.  Those doubles are going to turn into home runs.

Nope. Not with a very small sample size and not playing for 18 months.

It might over a longer period. The point is it took two games for his numbers to go from sucking to pretty decent. If you can do that, there's nothing to worry about. His K rate is low, his walk rate is there (although DSL walk numbers are pretty useless), his OPS is above .800. Good enough for now. Start more serious evaluation next year at a full season affiliate.

Honestly, I’m assuming he’s trade bait this offseason and they didn’t want to risk a rough starting stint at AA.

Probably because W-S is about 3 games or so from a playoff spot. I don't agree with it (Getz is way too conservative with promotions, although I'll take his approach there over Buddy Bell) but it is what it is.

At least walker can play CF in W-S without issue. Probably more important to his long-term value anyway.
