Cheslor Cuthbert - who I once was very high on - is starting to look like a bust.
I might not have a clue what I'm talking about, but the fact that Bubba Starling strikes out in more than 30% of his plate appearances in low A ball seems to be a strong indicator that he's quite likely to be a bust.
In fairness, Cuthbert was one of the youngest players in high Class A and he was playing in a gack-awful park for hitters.
You need to look at strikeout rate in conjunction with walk rate.
(Guys like Dunn and Thome had minor-league K-rates under 20% by the way.)
Unless there are a lot of guys who K'd at 30% in the minors but less than 30% in the majors
