Erik Komatsu major league equivalencies

Adam Kilgore of The Washington Post reports that the Nationals traded Jerry Hairston to the Brewers for minor league center fielder Erik Komatsu.

Komatsu, 23, was drafted in the eighth round of the 2008 draft. At Class AA Huntsville this season, Komatsu has hit .294/.393/.416 with six home runs and 13 stolen bases.

I’ve used a major league equivalency calculator to look at the minor league statistics of Bryce Harper and Stephen Lombardozzi. Here’s what how it translates Komatsu’s Class AA stats to the Nationals:

334 AB, 35 R, 79 H, 16 2B, 1 3B, 4 HR, 29 RBI, 39 BB, 48 K, .237 / .320 / .328, 11 SB, 7 CS.

It looks like he still needs some development, but the numbers suggest he has the potential to develop into a leadoff htter.
