Prospect Spotlight

Seigler brings a dynamic collection of tools to the field beginning with a switch-hitting stick that produces comfortably to all fields. There’s some natural lift in the swing, which already produces good line drive and fly ball contact, and a chance for Seigler to develop into average playable power at maturity taking doubles production and homers into account. His compact swing, patient approach and advanced feel for the zone should help Seigler maintain solid contact rates and he has enough potential to do damage that upper-level arms will be forced to work to the margins, which should help him produce solid on-base rates. He’s also a fringe-average runner who could be an asset on the bases. Behind the plate the former Florida commit is an athletic backstop with good side-to-side actions, soft but firm hands and a very good catch-and-throw game. He projects as a future above-average everyday producer and should be ready for full season ball in 2019.
