    With Dominguez, I keep saying this, but it is important to keep in mind. He is still only one of three 18 year olds with at least 100 plate appearances in his league (and I count five others across all of low A – so eight players out of around 450 total players are 18). I know we all expect someone with his reputation to come in and smash, but he is at the very youngest end of the age range and is in his first pro season.
