Add in his speed (Which is a legit 80 in a prospect scale), and it's hard not to fall into the hype for him.

He's got a legitimate chance to be a 5 tool CFer in his prime. He could, when all is said and done, be one of the most valuable players in baseball.
The kid is absolutely terrorizing AA, but that success is terrifying for Angel fans. If/when he goes to AAA he should put up monster numbers in that Salt Lake ballpark.
