Brand - Q&A with Pete Hissey
2010 Prospect Preview
Hissey turning heads in spring training (3.26.12)
Contract expired (November 2014)
Speedy center fielder
with solid defensive fundamentals. Projects to stay in center. Gets good
reads and jumps off the bat. Above-average range and speed. Average arm.
Smooth swing with some upward plane in it. Hissey has recently gone into
more of a crouch at the plate with his stance to quicken swing load.
Below-average present power. Doesn't have the quickest of wrists and tends
to slap/slash at the ball. Improving with staying back and allowing the
ball to get deep on him. A lot of room to fill out his frame, but physical
development has been slow. Good eye at the plate. Improving on creating
backspin to drive the ball more frequently. Improved leverage with swing
in 2012. Needs work pulling the ball with authority. Does not project to
have a lot of home run power, but can develop gap power. Fourth/fifth
outfielder potential on a second-division team.
