He just got traded by the Mets to the Nationals.
Last year, at age 22, while playing part-time in the outfield, he posted an OPS+ of 105. Using the PI feature, you can find simillar players.
Let's look for 22-year-olds who had an OPS+ between 100 and 110 while having 150-300 PA. Turns out, Milledge was only the sixth player to do it. I don't know why so many players there are moderns, but it's interesting. Not a bad set of comps, really. A Hall of Fame slamdunk, a man who has a shot if he ages well, two guys who flamed out and a man who only played because of the Federal League.
