Eric Longenhagen included a paragraph on Baddoo in his 7/9 Daily Prospect Report. He said Baddoo is "a potential everyday player with power and speed". Included in the article is a 3-minute video of random in-game AB.
I haven't bought the milb package this year, so I can only follow Baddoo by stats. Like they say, stats aren't scouting. But sometimes they show interesting changes. Here are his slash lines, K% and BB%, split by months:
April: .196/.375/.286, 36.5%K, 21.6%BB
May: .240/.412/.373, 21.6%, 28.9%
Jun/Jul .280/.345/.553, 16.6%, 9.0%
Pretty obvious he's started to be more aggressive at the plate. It's remarkable that he could change so much between April and June.BBs are way down but so are Ks, while his power has exploded. His ISO is up from .090 in April and .133 in May to a serious .273 the past 40 days (that's Rooker territory). Seems impressive to me.
* - ISO is defined as: isolated power = (slugging - average)
