BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 Yet another Lakeland player who spent the year fanning infielders with his bat, third baseman Wade Gaynor has always profiled as an offense-first prospect who may have to slide down the defensive spectrum, so flailing away helplessly in High-A at age 23 may have extinguished his already guttering prospect flame.
2011 His broad-but-shallow skill set—a little speed, a little pop—might be good enough at third base, but if, as feared, he has to move down the defensive spectrum, Wade Gaynor will have to bulk up his power stats and fatten his OBP in order to have a career.
