Kyle Blanks Top 100 Prospect?

Dubbed sleeper by many last year. And reasonably predicted for a breakout season in the Cal league by many before this year. He hasn't disappointed. Sure he still strikes out way too much, but he walks enough to have an acceptable ISO OBP. Being in the Padres organization means that your power potential are vastly hurt, and there's questions about where he'll play with Adrian Gonzalez in the major league level(though Blanks is pretty far away) and there's a big question of whether he can control his huge strike zone(he's 6'4") against better pitching.

His numbers for A+ Lake Elsinore in the Cal league

.327/.406/.589 17HR 30bb/67k 8sb/2cs

What type of player do you guys think he'll mostly become in the majors. And do you guys think he's a legitimate top 100 guy or is still just a sleeper due to strike zone questions and him being only in A+?
