In '09, he produced at a .251/.295/.411 clip with 10 triples, 70 RBI and only 23 walks in 118 games for the West Virginia Power. He made 14 errors in the outfield. He tied for second in the South Atlantic League in three-baggers, two behind Donnie Webb. In the Buc farm system, he was second in triples, one behind Alex Presley. He was also tied for 4th in RBI, even with Neil Walker and behind Pedro Alvarez, Jordy Mercer and Miles Durham.
With the Bradenton Marauders in 2010, he hit .266/.323/.444 with 31 doubles, 19 home runs, 84 runs and 100 RBIs. He was among the Florida State League leaders in runs (tied for 3rd with teammate Robbie Grossman), hits (138, 5th), doubles (tied for 6th with Erik Komatsu and Stephen Vogt), homers (tied for second with Melky Mesa, two behind leader Mike McDade), RBI (1st, 20 more than anyone else), strikeouts (136, tied for 5th), hit-by-pitch (2nd, 17), total bases (1st, 230) and slugging (7th, between Ryan Flaherty and Komatsu).

He was a Florida State League All-Star, joining Mesa and Komatsu as the outfielders (Anthony Gose was picked as a utility outfielder).
