A Short Post on Mike Aviles

The 27 year old rookie for the Kansas City Royals who has a .993 OPS despite having a career minor league OPS of .802. Without spoiling too much, which of these numbers do not fit with the others?

Age Team OPS
25 Omaha 0.68
26 Omaha 0.795
27 Omaha 1.001

To be fair to Aviles, there's a slight possiblity this is really him and that his BABIPs from the prior two years were unlucky, but honestly don't expect this nice run to last, and if it does I suppose that means hard work always prevails.

See, you expected me to make a pun with his name, but I didn't.
