Everyone else plays later in the day.
Waldrop seems to be taking a steady course toward the big leagues. As a 20-year-old, left-handed, athletic, 6-foot-3 outfielder, he entered the day with an .815 OPS for the month of July. He seldom seems to put up the monster games that bring immediate attention, but he keeps producing enough extra-base hits to solidify and maybe enhance his prospect status. I like the guy. As intriguing as Lutz is, you could make a case for Waldrop as the best pure outfield prospect in the system. (That said, you could also make a case for LaMarre, Yorman, possibly even Gelalich, Bryson Smith or Bill Hamilton. I'm just putting Waldrop in the photo.)
