He is now my favorite baseball player, he is just a little bit bigger than I am and it would be nice to see the small folk represented in the bigs!

Looks like that ankle injury and time off really hurt him.
In the one AB I saw of Mitchell in this game, he seems to me to have a VERY long swing. I don't know if that is because of the ankle injury and I'm sure that that injury is having an effect on him, but I think major league pitchers would eat him alive with that long swing.

Indeed. The swing needs to be tightened. That's consistent with past and current scouting reports.

the ankle injury also prevented him from getting some work in this year. I'm sure his swing would have been cut down considerably in the minors this year. Unfortunately he was unable to get back on the diamond until about a month ago.

Mitchell seemed to be moving well, though, and that's the most important thing at this point. If he's healthy (and he seemed alright playing CF), the mechanical adjustments with his swing will come with playing time.

This. Is true. I look for Mitchell to be a factor late in '11.

At what level? Mitchell was a 3 year project before the injury, he still needs atleast 2 in the minors to destroy and rebuild his swing.

At first, I didn't want to hear about Mitchell in the Majors until September call up in 2012, but now it might have to be 2014 with his injury.
