Duvall is one of the better power hitters in the organization with 58 HR's in 1,181 AB's but his .269/ .351 / .491 slash line demonstrates that he may have trouble hitting for a high enough average to advance beyond Fresno. We'll see if he can pick up the pace at AA Richmond. It looks like he'll strike out around 100+ times a season, but his 30 HR's and 100 RBI at San Jose (Hi A) will garner attention. He's batting .417 in the early going for Richmond (AA) with 2 HR's and 9 RBI's.
Duvall attended Louisville, the same college as AAA Fresno 3B-OF Chris Dominguez, who is also a premier power hitter to keep an eye on for the Giants.
