Prospect of the Day:  CF Chad Stang (High-A Brevard County)

I’m always a sucker for prospects like Chad Stang. The Brewers drafted Stang in the eighth round of the 2009 MLB Draft out of Canada, meaning he was slightly behind the developmental curve of similar players in the southern part of the United States who get to play competitive baseball year round due to the warmer weather. Then, he missed all of the 2010 season with a labrum tear in his right shoulder.

So, for a 24-year-old outfielder in High-A, he’s extremely raw and is coming off a double-digit home run season in the difficult offensive environment of the Midwest League. He hasn’t hit for much power this year and strikeouts have been a huge issue, but he enjoyed the best night of his 2013 campaign on Saturday evening, going 3-for-3 with his first home run. Hopefully, it can jumpstart a hot streak at the plate for the British Columbia native.

By all objective measures, Stang isn’t really a prospect. He doesn’t make enough contact to make his middling power play on the diamond, and that issue will only be exacerbated when he reaches the upper tiers of the minor-league ladder, unless something dramatic changes. But, at the same time, I have a soft spot for player with his makeup: 6-foot-2 guy in center field with good speed, a little raw power, and slightly behind on the developmental curve. You can dream a bit on those types of guys.

      Interesting. He was introduced to me as Chad last year. Thanks for the heads up, though, as I don’t want to call someone a name they don’t prefer. I appreciate it.

    I wonder how long we have to watch Weeks mash for his .600 OPS before Gennett gets called up and given a chance. Weeks is making AmRams career 1st half slumps look appealing at this point.
