2014-09-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Gosuke Katoh seemed to struggle down in Charleston this year, or at least that's the impression that I get from way up here. Was there any mechanical reason for this, or was it more of a 19 year old kid adapting to his first full season of pro ball type struggle?
(Colin from Oconomowoc, WI)
I sat on Charleston for a full series, and of the prospects there, Katoh did the least for me. The approach is very discerning, but there are holes in the swing leading to some swing-and-miss. It's a very inside-out swing but the load can get deep and I don't think he'll be able to handle premium velocity on the hands. He's a AAA guy for me.

Feel free to ask about more guys from that squad if you want. My sleeper there is Eduardo De Oleo. The numbers are weak, but he is a legitimate prospect behind the plate with the ability to stick and some pop in his bat. I put a major league grade on him. (Ethan Purser)
2013-11-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on Gosuke Katoh?
(padremurph from San Diego)
It's a tough profile; a hit tool second baseman with below-average power. He will have to hit a ton, and despite an impressive debut, there are still a lot of questions about how his swing will play against better arms. I like him, but again, its not the easiest profile and the bat really has to develop into a plus tool for him to make it work. (Jason Parks)
