What Scouts Are Saying

July 25, 2013

by Baseball Prospectus


Many of our authors make a habit of speaking to scouts and other talent evaluators in order to bring you the best baseball information available. Not all of the tidbits gleaned from those conversations make it into our articles, but we don't want them to go to waste. Instead, we'll be collecting them in a regular feature called "What Scouts Are Saying," which will be open to participation from the entire BP staff and include quotes about minor leaguers and major leaguers alike.

Major Leagues

Cardinals 2B Matt Carpenter: “He conducts ABs at such a high level and looks to be in complete control of his offensive approach. He doesn't panic, knows the strike zone, and gets the barrel to the ball efficiently. He is developing into an offensive player who sets the tone to their lineup and helps them win.”




White Sox 1B/DH Paul Konerko: “[He’s] going to need to be closely monitored now that he is back off the DL. He wasn't showing the same bat speed earlier in the season but still showed the ability to barrel balls up. Back issues are always scary, but if his time on the DL has helped his feel better, he could be a difference maker in a division or Wild Card race.
