Vladimir Guerrero

.759 Hitting
Potential

A much better eye than daddy. When you’re walking a lot and not striking out a lot and making good contact and have a great eye in the pros at 18 years old… There’s not many players you can say that about.

Ian Rice

.590 Hitting
Potential

Sat next to this guy’s mom at a bar around the corner from my house last night, so I figured I had to look him up.

He looks OK. He’s OBP is increasing as he’s moving up, which is a GREAT sign for a young hitter. But there’s nothing that jumps out about his bat just yet.

Side note: Statistically, his arm behind the plate looks awful so far: 46 steals in 51 attempts. When I pointed this out to his mother, she attributed it to sloppy scorekeepers in the minors charging him for things like defensive indifference. But if his arm is this poor, there’s no way he makes it as a catcher. And if he doesn’t make it as a catcher, it will be that much harder to make it anywhere else.

Mitch Haniger

.603 Hitting
Potential

Off to a hot start this year. Bat looks decent, but he’s a bit old to finally be making his mark in the majors. He may have 2-3 decent years in him as he peaks, but I don’t think he’s good enough to last much longer.
