I remember thinking this guy was the business when I was first getting into stats and he came up and had a .556/.636/1.111 line in 7 games in 1988. Alas, he was not good.BB-Ref
Shot up quickly. Solid all-around, but didn’t look to be anything exceptional with the bat.BB-Ref
Looked decent. Certainly didn’t expect a ROY or 40+ home run seasons.BB-Ref
Didn’t look like much coming up.
What he did in Montreal was about what I would have expected. Certainly didn’t expect his explosion on Colorado.BB-Ref
Looked decent coming up, but I remember all the hype. He never came anywhere near meeting expectations.BB-Ref
Yep, he was for real.BB-Ref
This guy looked like a contact hitter with power potential. It’s no wonder everyone as gaga about him when he came up.
He ended up having a pretty good, if not spectacular, career. He never developed the power that might have been inferred from his numbers, perhaps because of his relatively small size.BB-Ref
He was good.BB-Ref
He looked amazing coming out of the minors. Ended up having a pretty good big league career, but I thought he could have been even better. Was something holding him back?BB-Ref
Could have been pretty good.BB-Ref
