What Scouts Are Saying

June 13, 2014

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

Mets OF Bobby Abreu: “It’s amazing how he still puts together quality at-bats on a regular basis. He’s old, slow, and his bat speed has obviously declined, but he won’t get cheated very often. He can be a headache for pitchers and make them pay for mistakes.”



Pirates OF Andrew McCutchen: “He continues to develop as a premier hitter and adjust his hands as well as or better than any major leaguer in the game today. For someone who starts with his arms as low as he does, he cocks, loads, and gets the bat through the zone as well as anyone I’ve seen. But he’s not afraid to use all parts of the field either, which makes him a very difficult out.”
