So I searched all of this forum for a thread already about Waldrop and couldn't find one so I am dedicating this thread to him.
Waldrop is a lefty hitting OF who the Reds drafted in the 12th round of 2010.
He only got 29 PAs in 2010 and didn't do much in his first year of pro ball.
In 2011, he exhibit enormous power posting a .198 ISO, but struggled with a 22.2% K rate and a 3.4% BB rate. So while he did hit .273 last year, he only had a .305 OBP.
Waldrop has shown great strides in both his K and BB rate in 2012. In 455 PAs this year, he has more than doubled his walk rate to 8.4% and has taken a major chunk out of his K rate and now he is down to a 16.5% K rate. So while his ISO is down to .129, he has shown a much better eye at the plate.
I am going to be very interested to see if he can sustain this BB and K rates when he makes the jump to Bakersfield next year while also seeing if he can up that ISO in the bandbox that is Bakersfield.
