DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)I read somewhere that Hector Veloz has a 70 hit tool. I went to a game at Aberdeen and I have to say, I agree with the assessment. Stays balanced, handsy swing, uses the whole field, tends to stay up the middle, covers every quadrant. I say he hits .320 in the bigs with a lot of walks. Agree?

Reverse everything you said.

Hector Veloz is the best. I've never seen a player have so little focus on the field. It's not bad makeup, but he's on his own planet at times. legit 70 raw power though. (Tucker Blair)
