I wonder how he could have been caught in a Spring Training test for what Will is speculating was an untestable drug. If he was caught in ST taking a substance that can't be tested, then wouldn't he have been banned to start the season? He apparently waived his right to appeal, which indicates that the discovery of PED use by MLB occurred in the past couple of days. Color me confused by the information we're receiving about all this.

Age very likely has something to do with it, but even more likely is their relative size. Maximiliano Ramirez is listed at 5'11" and #170, whereas Wieters is 6'5" and #230. Looking at the picture of Ramirez, I doubt he still weighs as little as that, so perhaps it should be updated. You're also leaving out the fact that when Wieters jumped a level his production actually increased. On the other hand, when Ramirez jumped up to AAA he had a .243/.293/.432 line in 37 ABs, and a .217/.345/.370 line in 45 ABs in the Majors. Small sample problems aside, I think there's more to this projection than PECOTA's distaste for spicy food.
