Baseball Prospectus – Prospecting: Andy Marte

I think it’s a premium article. Here’s the conclusion:

Marte is one of the premier power prospects in the game, and his improving strike zone judgment gives hope that he could become a classic cleanup hitter. While we have yet to see how he will adjust to Double-A pitching, there are few prospects in baseball that are as intriguing as Andy Marte.

  1. I’m praying for two things…

    A. that his plate discipline evolves so he can be great.

    B. that he doesn’t jump Richmond so I can see him here. Betemit be damned, we need some power prospects here.

  2. His walks are way up this year, which is a good sign. Power’s down a little, but that’s normal in that league, especially in that park. (Though he’s actually hit better in Myrtle.) I assume he’ll start out next year in Greenville and they’ll take it from there.

  3. Unrelated, but humorous: Anyone notice the Mets’ seven-game losing streak has put them 30 games behind the Braves?

    Ah, rich.
