Prospect Spotlight

The 60th overall pick in 2017 from a Canadian high school, Hall barely played after signing in order to add strength and acclimate to professional baseball. That seems to have paid off, as he went from being questionably ready to hit coming out of high school to slashing .298/.368/.374 just a year later in the New York-Penn League. He has taken another step forward at the plate in 2019, named to the South Atlantic League all-star team after hitting .321 and swiping 16 bases for Delmarva in the first half.

Hall had a fringy arm entering pro ball that has gotten stronger in subsequent years, giving him a better chance to stick at shortstop. He’s fast enough to try the outfield if he does move off the position. He likely won’t ever hit for much power, but double-plus speed plays up his hit tool and compensates for other holes in his game. Hall’s best-case upside is a low-end regular if he’s enough of a hit/on-base threat, with the wheels and potential defensive versatility to help off the bench if his bat falls short of that.
