- Bailey in GCL (.649 OPS, .310 wOBA, 10.6 BB%, 34.3 SO%, .168 ISO, 31 CS%)
- O'Conner in GCL (.649 OPS, .310 wOBA, 9.6 BB%, 28.6 SO%, .137 ISO, 35 CS%)
- Bailey in Bowling Green (.687 OPS, .319 wOBA, 6.5 BB%, 37 SO%, .168 ISO, 39 CS%)
- O'Conner in Princeton (.694 OPS, .305 wOBA, 6.1 BB%, 41.9 SO%, .137 ISO, 60 CS%) ... small sample size, I know.
While the both have had very different paths to their current situation (Bailey: TJS; O'Conner: late conversion to catcher) their performances are noticably similar. They both strikeout way too much while showing some power. This (and their contact woes) will be the biggest challenge for both on their way to the bigs.
Whom do you feel more comfortable about? Whom do you not see developing into a future major leaguer? How do you see their futures?
