Not at all. The power is really a function of what makes hima good #2 hitter to begin with and that's pitch recognition and bat control.
If dude finishes with 15 HRs I'll still be shocked but he's dangerous at #2 because he's developing into a guy who can do a variety of things to hurt you. That includes hitting the ball anywhere on the field, dropping a bunt down, working a count with pretty solid plate discipline and making you pay for fastballs you miss with or throw to give your catcher a chance to make a play on Brantley or whoever else may be on 1B.
