Prospect Retrospective and Career Profile- Denard Span, OF, Nationals

Assigned to rookie-level Elizabethton in 2003, Span hit .271/.355/.319 with 14 steals, 23 walks, and 34 strikeouts in 207 at-bats. He was impressive defensively and showed obvious speed and athleticism, and his strike zone judgment wasn’t bad. But the lack of [url=]acheter le maillot de la belgique[/url]
power was extreme: .048 isolated power, and there were serious questions about how his bat would play against more powerful pitching. I gave him a Grade C in the 2004 book, noting the athleticism again but [url=]bayern 2014 trikot[/url]
worrying that the bat would not be strong enough.

2004 was similar: .267/.363/.308 with 34 walks, 49 strikeouts, 15 steals in 240 at-bats for Quad Cities in the Midwest League. I [url=]sponsor maillot bayern munich[/url]
had the opportunity to see him in person and he looked exactly like the stats would imply: very fast, decent eye, but with no strength in the bat and unable to get the ball past the infield. I did note that “he is still very young, [url=]bvb trikot sterne[/url]
he is willing to work the count, and he’s not so small that he can’t develop a bit of pop in time.” “Grade C for now” was the conclusion.
Span opened 2005 [url=]arsenal trikot 2014 kaufen[/url]
with Fort Myers in the Florida State League, hitting .339/.410/.403 with 22 walks, 25 strikeouts, and 13 steals in 186 at-bats. Promoted to Double-A New Britain, he hit .285/.355/.345 with 22 walks, 41 strikeouts, and 10 steals. Distance power was still not an asset but there was a bit more punch in the bat, enough to scoot the ball into the outfield for [url=]maillot psg pas cher chine[/url]
more frequent line drive hits anyway. He moved up to Grade C+ but still looked more like a fourth outfielder to me than a potential regular.
