Jim Callis on Albert Almora

Baseball America's Jim Callis answered a reader's question in one of his recent articles. Asked which of Albert Almora, Jorge Soler, David Dahl and Yasiel Puig had the the best chance for succes, Callis said it was easy.

Which is the best bet for success is easy. Almora has the highest floor among that group, with scouts considering him one of the most advanced and mature high school players to come along in years.

The No. 6 overall pick in the 2012 draft is currently sidelined with a broken hamate bone in his left hand, but Almora should speed toward Wrigley Field once healthy. I’ll be stunned if he doesn’t become at least an annual .275/15 homer hitter with Gold Glove ability in center field.

He also took Puig as having the highest ceiling among the group.
