What Scouts Are Saying

August 15, 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

Diamondbacks 3B Matt Davidson: "This guy has a steady approach and he looks like he is in complete control of his ABs. I doubt he will scare off now that he is in the big leagues, and his power and approach should work in the majors. He might bring more offense to [the Diamondbacks] than some of their regulars."



Marlins RHP Nathan Eovaldi: “He might have the best fastball I have seen all year. The off-speed stuff is still a work in progress, but the slider is definitely useable. There's no doubt in my mind he would be an elite closer, but he may become a middle-of-the-rotation starting pitcher, and he was better than that on Saturday against the team with the best record in baseball.”



Pirates OF Andrew Lambo: “He shows pretty easy power, but it will be interesting to see how he handles major-league pitching. He doesn't shy away from the spotlight and plays the game with a chip on his shoulder, but he has a chance to impact their lineup right away. He can defend himself and impact games.”
