As-Cab---is he the future Omar?

The situations are (while not completely) similar.  We got both Omar and AsCab from the Mariners for next to nothing. Both players were known for their extremely talented defense and glove work but both prospects had questions about whether or not they could hit consistantly at the ML level.  We know what Omarriffic did and it looks like AsCab has really turned a corner this year.  At just 21 years of age AsCab is really hitting the ball well at AA and is showing ecouraging signs

His power numbers are way up above his minor league average, 7 HRs, 20 doubles, and. 482 Slg.  His OPS is very good at 880, again well above his career marks.  And probably most encouraging and significant is his 37/34 BB/KK ratio.  I really want to see this kid in Cleveland in the near future but realize at 21 he's likely a year, probably two, away.  

My question is two fold.  Is this maturation and increased production for real?  And two, what grade would he get now?  He was a C+ to start the year.  Loved to hear your thoughts!

Let's make it an Indian summer!
