Sleeper Prospect

New, 3 comments

A sleeper prospect for you: Marcus Sanders, 2B, San Francisco Giants.

A 17th round pick in '03 from a Florida high school, he signed as a "draft and follow" guy last spring. Hitting .296/.391/.423, with 40 steals in 44 attempts for Augusta in the Sally League. Very fast obviously, has also drawn 43 walks and gets on base at a good clip. Defense should be good enough for him to stick at second base. I like this one a lot; I compared him to Ray Durham in my book, and that still sounds like a decent comparison. Grade B- guy, perhaps higher at the end of the year.
