The Sally is a huge league, basically only room for an average of two players per team...Adolfo will accumulate more believers if he can keep this up. A lot of people simply forgot about him and choose to focus on the bigger names.

Adolfo will struggle to get a lot of traction until he cuts down his 33% K rate and improves his K:BB ratio of 7:1. Those rates usually are a bad omen. While he is hitting with more power this season, his contact rates really have not improved and he isn't drawing anymore walks.

Look at a guy with a similar skill set in Adam Brett Walker, he has a 22% K rate in low A but ended up stalling out in AA despite tremendous power.

Adolfos still young, but I am not sure the Sox have ever really fixed those type of issues with any of their hitting prospects.
