Yes, durability is a concern given his size, but the guy has flat-out dominated everywhere he's been since turning pro. This will be the make or break season for him as a prospect...his 2013 couldn't have possibly been better but now it's time to do it against the upper levels of the Minors.
Regarding CJ Edwards, you also have to remember that he is old for his level and has not thrown a lot of innings as a professional. He'll be 22 years, 6 months when Opening Day rolls around, still hasn't pitched above A-ball, and has less than 185 IP as a professional. Most top pitching prospects are in the majors already by the time they're 22 and a half, or at the very least in AAA, and have thrown 300-400 IP as a professional.

I understand that argument but I personally am not high on it. What has become the norm bc of foreign players and hs draftees shouldn't hurt others in ranking as much as it does. Springer is gonna be 25. Mike Olt when he was hot was old for his level at AA. There are good minor leaguers who just play well and either got put on a slower track or developed late but are still ballers!

Funny that both players you mentioned went to UConn. No other real analysis, just thought it was ironic.

When Hasheem Thabeet, Ray Allen and Charlie Villanueva were in High A they were 28!
