It's not like playing games at first base is all of the sudden going to turn him into a scrub.
It devalues him though. Having a power hitting 3rd basemen and young is very very valuable.

Turning him into a 1st baseman, where most people have decent power, makes him a run of the mill ordinary player.

Unless he hits .300 and 40 hrs in the MLB, then he'll be in a different tier, but if he's a 3rd baseman that plays decent 3rd (which I think he is, low range, but has a cannon) and can hit .270 and 25-28 HRs, that puts him into a top tier of 3rd baseman.
