Just wanted to start a thread about our budding German prospect, as I got to watch him play a lot this week and last down at Spring Training, and it appears others are there now or have been as well.
I was very impressed, he stood out more than anybody I got a chance to watch. It seemed every at bat I watched he laced a line drive somewhere for a hit and raced gracefully around the bases. I wasn't paying much attention to defense, focusing on the pitchers and hitters for pictures, but he was making a big impression in the batters box. Anyone else have any thoughts?
Video I took of him lining an opposite field double down the line: http://www.twitpic.com/8zswq4
Scouting Report: Power: 30, Hitting: 50, Arm: 60, Defense: 40, Speed: 40. "Line drive swing and shows good contact and on-base abilities. Double's power at his peak. Strong arm from 2B or the OF, stiff hands. Not a fast runner, but above average instincts on the bases. Skinny body doesn't look the part, but can sneak up on you. ACL surgery sapped much of his athleticism." (Probably)
