I was thinking about the above-linked thread after Conger hit his second XBH of today's game. Not only does the post mention Chatwood's development, it also mentions lefty Andrew Taylor, who had a solid two hit performance in Arkansas today.
But what I like is the little exchange between rghan, TheQuestforMerlin and myself regarding Conger's potential.
Hank has had a very intriguing development curve in the minors. Much like Morales, he came into the organization with much-heralded offensive potential, but didn't immediately show it in the longball department. The HRs were rare, even as the plate appearances were excellent, K-rates were well-controlled, and overall metrics were very solid. Most of us forget this at this point, but Morales had only 17 HRs over 130 games at Salt Lake at age 23-24, and people were freaking out. You look at Conger last year at Salt Lake, and the trend was similar. In fact, his seasons through his age 20-22 years looked very solid, but the HRs were scarce, and he started falling off the prospect lists.
Once again, I'm not saying that Hank Conger is Kendry Morales, or that he has Kendry's power ceiling, but he looks like a potential breakout player in much the same way that Kendry did, and we shouldn't be surprised if he exceeds expectations in the next year or two.
