All the reports have been that he's been very impressive with his approach and defense, and has shown great plate discipline. He's really starting to hit there lately as well.

The bat is very real, and I don't think there's any concern over his stats, he's very, very young to be at AA and he is more than holding his own there.

Bryce Harper put up numbers very similar to Machado when he was in AA/AAA, though he didn't have as many AB's.
