Re: Who is Redszone's #30 prospect?
I admittedly don't know a whole lot about Waldrop. Just that 1) he was touted as a very good athlete, 2) he's a good-sized kid (6-3, 190) and left-handed hitter who would seem to project pretty well as a power guy, and 3) he delivered a lot of extra-base hits last year at Billings. In 293 PA (68 G), he only hit 5 HR, but with 22 doubles and 9 triples. That would seem to speak well for his speed, among other things. I mean, that's a lot of doubles and triples for a 19-year-old (for anybody, actually). Over a full schedule, it projects to more than 45 doubles and close to 20 triples. Not that he can sustain that, but it certainly seems promising in terms of wherewithal. Plus, he's an outfielder, a position that could fast-track him in a system that seems to be lacking at that spot.
