PG Pageant Notes
Which players will boost farm system rankings?
Bobby Witt Jr
It’s public knowledge by now that hard contact eluded him this summer. He went 0-for-Area Codes and Perfect Game.
According to Samcast 85 percent of batted balls in play were weak, I saw 19 foul balls and 12 swing n misses. To his credit he managed to see 5.2 pitches per AB and walk five times. The can’t-miss prospect is missing and needs help.
Will the body hold serve in professional baseball? I mean he skipped out on Area Codes which gives me a pause and makes me think he needed some time off? If the body fills out he could be Didi Gregorious…if it doesn’t is he Wilton Guerrero or Billy Hamilton?
Woke up the next morning on the front pages. I told you a few weeks ago, right here in the digital pages of Inside the Scouting Trail…https://insidethescoutingtrail.news/underamour/
Reminds me of a modern day Brett Butler
If you squint enough you might see some Doc Gooden in the delivery
Didn’t see the downhill plane I wanted to see
Pegging him Jeff Francis
Pegging him Joe Blaton
the 5 o’clock power is fun to watch but will it be offset by lumbering woes and a disinterest in fielding?
East/West delivery cools my enthusiasm
Managed to barrel balls at every stop during the showcase circuit…however BP at PG was underwhelming an indication of possible fatigue. All the value will be tied to the bat.
Damned by fatigue? Wouldn’t be surprised if his 95 in the spring. Will be tough sign
Got short looks and short bursts and but gotta make quick decisions. Guys I’m intrigued…
There have been plenty of phenomenal shortstops who took a while to figure the bat out
Reminds me a young Mark Tehean, will need to make similar adjustments to make it
Saw some LeMahieu….Would have liked to have seen him at SS & get some AB’s
Who will go # 1 in 2019?
Can you see the smile in Adley Rutschman’s face?
