He's going to be an interesting case for his contract.  He's already cracked into the arbitration years, so he has a bit more escalation than Tatis.

Through age-21 his B-R similar batters are:

Frank Robinson (inner circle HOF, multiple times best player in his league)

Ronald Acuna

Trout (one of the greatest ever)

Mantle (inner circle HOF, best player in AL for many years)

Aaron (one of the greatest ever)

Tony Canigliaro (sad story)

Bob Horner (I only remember him as overweight, missed his early years)

Orlando Cepeda (HOF)

Eddie Mathews (2nd best 3B ever)

Ken Griffey Jr. (HOF, was best in AL for several years)
