EDIT: Further evidence of him perhaps surpassing WMB already:

Exhibit A: Quote by Cherington: “You know, I’ve always kind of felt like there’s no such thing as a prospect in Triple-A,’’ Cherington said. “Once you get to Triple-A, you’re either ready to help the big-league team or you’re not. And us, we’re finding out about the guys at Triple-A now, who’s ready and who isn’t.

Exhibit B: Last ten games:

Bogaerts - .333/.436/.515, 4/6 K/BB
WMB - .244/.279/.561 8/2 K/BB

Exhibit C: Bogaerts, age 20: .297/.393/.487, 70/49 K/BB, 370 POR/PAW PAs
WMB, age 20: .265/.349/.404, 123/48 K/BB, 427 GRE PAs
Holy **** WMB has two walks in only ten games godly for him.

No but seriously I can't wait for Bogaerts to pull a Machado this year.
