I don't think he is going to hit for power. I think he is a Ryan Sweeney type, a kid who just kind of does everything well, and might be a 270 hitter in the pros but won't scratch a .750 OPS.

Would love to be wrong, but I think he generates his power too much from his hands, and that never works in the pros.
I think Sweeney is a good comparison for his downside. But I also think it is far too early to make a judgment call on him. I'd want to see what he does this year, if he can make adjustments, before deciding if he is part of the future or not. I'm high on Adolfo so I'm hoping Rutherford is the odd man out whether he performs or not but Adolfo is far from a sure thing so I like the idea of some additional outfield depth to pick from.
