2013 Prospect Preview
Scouting Scratch: Manuel Margot... (7.24.13)

2013 Top 40 Season in Review
2014 Top 40 Season in Review

Physical Description: Medium frame with fast-twitch muscle and above-average athleticism. Some physical projection remaining and needs to add strength.  

Hit: Has a fluid swing. Quick hands. Smooth load and little wasted movement. Hands stay in position to hit, with separation during stride. Plus bat speed. Natural bat-to-ball skills. Presently a line-drive hitter. Surprisingly polished approach for his age. Has shown willingness to see pitches, but typically likes to attack early in the count. This aggressiveness can lead to weak contact when he expands his strike zone. Swing can get long. Needs to work on going to all fields. Future solid-average-to-plus hit tool.  

Power: Surprising power for someone his size. Ball makes unique sound off his bat. Doubles power has started developing into over-the-fence power. Squares the ball up consistently and can drive with backspin. Average power potential (15ish home runs a year). Could hit 30 doubles a year.  

Arm: Average arm strength, quick release. Plenty of arm for center.

Field: Reads the ball off the bat well in center field. Graceful when tracking fly balls and shows understanding of how to take precise routes. Will be able to stick in center. Plus range, projects as a well above-average defender in center.

Run: Plus-plus speed. Gets out of the box quickly. Needs to improve reads when stealing bases. Potential to steal 30-plus bases at the big league level.  

Career Notes: Lone home run in Lowell in 2013 was inside-the-park.  

Summation: Future first-division regular who could contribute in all areas of the game. Potential leadoff hitter who could hit for average and some power, steal bases and provide above average defense at a premium defensive position. Strong instincts, has really taken to professional baseball since he entered the system and adjusted to each challenge given to him seamlessly.
