Ryan Howard = Cecil Fielder?

Blogger "Shore" at thegoodphight posted the notion that Ryan Howard might be a left-handed Cecil Fielder. I took a look at their minor-league numbers:

Minor league numbers (from thebaseballcube):
Fielder: 624 G, 2301 AB, 138 HR, 289 BB, 525 K, .296/.378/.541/.919
Howard: 444 G, 1637 AB, 94 HR, 206 BB, 517 K, .290/.373/.528/.901

Howard's strikeout rate is a bit higher, but otherwise their numbers are virtually identical (except for the number of games).

Apparently, Baseball Prospectus' comparables list for Howard doesn't include Fielder, but I'm not a subscriber.

What does everyone think?
