The Buck Stops Here Prospects: Prospect Hot Sheet: Prospect Hot Sheet: May 28:

"Arencibia's power will play anywhere. He has smacked seven home runs through 38 games this season, including two in two games at Round Rock the past two days. In addition to the homers, Arencibia went a robust 6-for-10 with four doubles. But for a catcher with terrific power—he has crushed 21 and 27 bombs in the past two seasons—his downside is steep, as illustrated above by a lower on-base percentage than batting average. But if you're looking for signs of improvement, there's this: Arencibia is on pace to shatter his previous high for walks in a season (26), and his .313 on-base percentage would be his highest since his Florida State League days."
