The Next Ian Stewart?

Baseball America | Blog | Baseball America Prospects Blog | Thursday Dish: Young Rockie Arenado Emerging: "Arenado, the Rockies' second-round pick last year, began the year in extended spring training, but since he joined low Class A Asheville two weeks ago, the 19-year-old third baseman has shown why his bat is so highly regarded.
Arenado has a hit in 11 of his 12 games and is batting .380/.414/.560 with as many walks (five) as strikeouts. Sure, he's benefiting from a hitter-friendly environment in Asheville, so the power numbers will probably come down, but Arenado's hitting is no mirage."

How long did it take Ian Stewart to live-up to his Asheville season? (2004 - 30 HRs, 101 RBIs)
