I hope the new model makes it, MLB needs a good Willie Wilson type. There haven't been many true burner lead off men in the league since the 80s. Looks like he's on the fast track; last year at this time he was playing in the Midwest League.
I saw him last August here in Lansing against the Lugnuts. He went 4-6 with 3 R and 3 SB. He was running all over the place.

Looks like he's hitting better this year and walking a lot more too. Still strikes out a decent bit, but he's definitely an interesting player to watch.
