Shilo McCall | OF, 19 yo, 6-1, 210, BR, TR | 2012 Draft – 9 | (A-) 55 G, 227 PA, .235/.330/.398, .728 OPS, 4 HR, 30 RBI, 3 SB, 2 CS, 21 BB, 67 K
One of the more overlooked young players in the organization. The Giants reportedly wanted him early in the 2012 draft, but couldn’t get a deal hammered out until the 9th round. He’s displayed decent power potential in two short-season stints, and the hope is that it will continue to develop with more experience. He’s still very raw and strikeout-prone at the plate, but he’s a stout kid with a ton of athleticism. Personally, I’d like to see him get a spot in Augusta with Christian Arroyo and Ryder Jones next year. At his age, a solid 2014 could put him very much on the prospect map.
They said it: “Thick, very strong athletic build…aggressive swing with very good bat speed…Nice speed/power combination.” ~ Perfect Game
