    Steve: Wwhat is a legit homer ceiling for lj? 8-10? 12-16?
    Jordan: How aggresivley can we expect the O’s to promote LJ through the system? possible he makes it to Bowie in ’10?

      Hey DoubleB, glad you liked the post.

      The Orioles tend to leave their young high school hitters at one level each year, so I don’t think Hoes will be at Bowie for an extended period of time. Maybe 20 at-bats at the end of the season similar to what they did with Pedro Florimon and Brandon Waring last season.

      DoubleB –

      He’s got a pretty good frame on him with slightly broad shoulders and good musculature on his legs. And he’s got good speed so he’s obviously a quick twitch athlete.

      Perfect world power projection would prolly be 12-14 but the most realistic with this swing is prolly 5-7. But factor in adjustments and experience and he could be a 7-10 fairly easily (relatively speaking).
