Yeah but AAA pitching is better than AA. He'll get more quality at bats in AAA than AA. In other words, we'll get a better idea of what he'll be by seeing what he does in AAA. If he can maintain the OBP and power in AAA, he's probably going to be pretty good when he's 27-30.

Really?

I see that the Rangers apparently don't have a minor league affiliate in the EAS league... For the Giants prospects, AA is actually the truest test for hitters because the pitching is roughest in the EAS league for our AA affiliate in Richmond. Many Giants fans freaked out when Gary Brown and Joe Panik saw their numbers drop substantially in AA due to first-half slumps in Richmond after their excellent year in San Jose in the CAL league, but both guys had much-improved second halfs in AA, showing that they had fought through the harshness of that level which sees a lot of better pitching.

The Rangers' Round Rock AAA team is in the PCL, like the Giants AAA team the Fresno Grizzlies... But that is a league that is notoriously hitter-friendly, with many inflated numbers for hitters, and a whole way of pitching that is very different from MLB-level pitching. For instance, guys who pitch at that level, in the PCL, practically never, ever throw inside. Makes hitting a lot easier, and it's one reason why Giants pitchers have largely remained at AAA for barely a few months at most, doing most of their minor league work at low-A, A and then AA.

I don't think Olt is missing that much by not playing in AAA yet. The PCL league will almost surely just give him a bunch of great-looking numbers, which can always be useful for hitters who are on their way to MLB, but is not necessary beyond a couple of months, really. But you have affiliates in the SAL league (like we do) and one in the CAR league...

But, yeah, Perfect Poster is right. AAA is pretty much the coronation for a budding star--you aren't going to be spending very much time there, by and large... and, otherwise, it's where retreads and never-will-bes quietly stagnate.

It doesn't really matter if it's full of guys that will never make it in MLB. The fact is it does have pretty good baseball players in it. It's just another level to refine the craft. It's a no pressure league (compared to the Majors) where you can work on stuff. Point stands, if he can maintain power and his OBP in AAA, he'll probably be a pretty good hitter.

If you don't think it matters what he does there...ok. I disagree.

Ya I don't see what all the fuss is about Olt either. Trade him. Don't trade him. I don't think it has any huge long term franchise effect.

Guys that play good defense at 3B while also jacking 20-30 HRs with good OBP is pretty good guys. Maybe he never reaches this potential in the Major Leagues, but that's why he's thought of highly.

To me he's going to be an average 3B. Profar should be their untouchable and biggest commodity to keep. There's a lot more trades they could make with Olt than just for Stanton.

LOL @ MrMr acting like Olt is an elite prospect that should only be traded for someone the likes of Giancarlo.

He'd be a guy that would be involved in a trade is what I'm saying. It'd obviously take more than Olt. Olt wasn't enough for Upton and Stanton is better than Upton.

Stacks and I have the trade setup. It's going down in June.

And yeah Profar is obviously more valuable and important than Olt.

It matters what he does but if he's as good as advertised, he'll be fine in AAA. I agree that it's a level where you learn a little bit more overall, but he shouldn't need to linger there. He should be out of AAA within 2-4 months.

I'm not sure where he's going to start this season, maybe it will be AAA...

WIL is going to RAPE AAA until June, when he'll begin to RAPE Major League pitching.
