    Solarte

    Kid hasn't stopped. More walks then Ks. Average, on base, and now power. The versatility and switch hitting is great too.

    My question is, at what point can we believe its legit? All star break? End of year? Not until he repeats next year. Curious as to what people think here.

    By the way, by legit I do t mean a batting crown contender. Remember, this kid was not supposed to be good enough to be a backup. So by "legit" I simply mean some who should be a starter on a contender. Say, someone who can hit .280 for the season with gap power.

    By August. If the pitchers & teams haven't figured him out by then, it's a safe bet he's legit

    I would check his stats at the all star break. What you see then is probably what you can expect.

    I wish he had a better glove, but the kid has definitely been a bright spot in a not so bright year so far.

    He doesn't K much and gets a decent amount of BB. Good LD% and makes contact with everything thrown within the Strike zone.

    He will regress some but he could be a solid addition to the lineup.

    Ummm.....he's legit. He's leading the league in batting. He plays in The major leagues. This means he's good .

    Embrace it rather than being skeptical.

    And if Cashman gets buried for signings that don't work, why doesn't he get credit for this stud?

    He's better than Bob so far. And we saved $240m.

    Lord knows I loved Cano's game but a long time ago I said Solarte might make me forget about Cano. I saw him play twice in spring training in Fla..I thought he was really good then but like everyone else was waiting for the bottom to fall out..So far it hasn't happened. Pepole didn't think Cano was too much when he came up either. He turned out to be one of the best hitters in the game..I think Solarte has a real chance. As for his glove..Let's not forget that he's playing out of position on the biggest stage in baseball as a rookie. I think he's playing a damn good 3rd base. As Leo 9my new best friend said ) "let's embrace it"

    With "legit" being defined at as low a threshold as the OP is defining it, yes he definitely is. How good he will be exactly is up in the air. He's definitely not going to keep up this level of production.

    I agree with Leo , the guy has been doing this for almost 3 months now and is still improving. Hes legit, by legit I mean a very good player. Pitchers have adjusted to him and he's adjusted right back. Is he an MVP type of player idk but right now I'm enjoying watching him play.

    I'm sure teams have the tape rolling on him because he is one of the few problems in the Yankees line up right now..And by that I mean problems for the opposing pitchers

    The skeptics don't want to be disappointed is all. Seems silly to me to act like that, though. He's legit.

    Solarte is what everyone hoped Nunez would be. And his helmet stays firmly affixed to his head at all times.
