Prospect Spotlight

I had a quick look at Wall, a former compensation round pick. He showed the makings of an offensive player that will at some point be moved off second to a corner outfield spot. Wall is a little bit unique in that he has a plus hit tool with some power projection, but mostly in the way of doubles; he is likely an average runner, however that speed doesn’t seem to translate in the field. He showed below average footwork and hands going to his left on a routine groundball; he showed arm strength on a double play, but was flat-footed and slow on the turn. Overall, this is a guy that has hit at a good clip thus far in his short pro career and projects to continue developing in that area. He doesn’t seem like he has the run or instincts for centerfield, but if he hits, look for Colorado to find a spot for him at a corner outfield spot. — Dave DeFreitas
