  • Fishbone, Papi, Backstop: A request

    I'm looking @ the seventh round draft pick from LSU's stats this year and he's killing the ball (.350, .575 slugging%, .406 OBP, 13 HRs, 49 RBI and 20ks in 226 ABs)....and he's an OF...

    What are his chances and what does Baseball America say aboot him?

          Baseball America's newest thing about him when you do a search is just about the draft, he isn't listed in their top ten prospects or anything.

            OF Nick Stavinoha began his college athletic career as a long snapper on the Houston football team, then spent two seasons as a catcher at San Jacinto (Texas) Junior College. He has settled into right field and has almost as many homers (17) as strikeouts (19) this year.

              From BA's Daily Dish yesterday:

              A 23-year-old senior sign hitting in the Midwest League is not a huge story, but Cardinals outfielder Nick Stavinoha is nonetheless putting together a big pro debut at Quad Cities. A seventh-round pick out of Louisiana State, Stavinoha was 3-for-5 with his 13th home run in Monday night's 13-8 win over Cedar Rapids and has at least one run and one hit in each of his last 11 games, to go with season averages of .350/.406/.575 in 226 at-bats.

                That's probably the most important thing right now, but you can't fault the guy for where they stuck him. Better to be a 23-yo mashing in the Midwest League than a 23-yo sucking in the Midwest League.

                  Plus, I think he went straight to the Midwest League and is tearing it up. No rookie ball for him. I have been watching their box scores all season and was waiting for his numbers to drop. But he has stayed very consistent. Wonder if they'll have him play winter ball somewhere? Get him some more ABs and send him to AA next year.

                  Dear God, KBF here. I'd just like to say thanks, once again, for allowing Dusty Baker and I to live during the same time period. Every time I think he's given me his last gift -- overpitching Prior in the playoffs, getting cocky in Game 6 vs. the Angels, blowing another game for the Cubs -- he does something stupid like pitching to Albert Pujols. Thy will be done, baby!!!!!

                    So what should we expect?

                      Who knows? Tough to predict anything based on a couple hundred ABs or whatever in the Quad Cities.

                      I mean, historically, I'd say guys in his position have a slim chance of becoming everyday MLB players. I don't know anything about his "tools" or whatever, but I think the most likely outcome would be that he'll fizzle out once he starts seeing higher-level pitching.

                      But hey, you never know. No reason to count him out until he stops hitting.
