Prospect of the Day:  OF Caleb Gindl

It has been an extremely difficult year for Caleb Gindl in 2012. The young outfielder began his season in big league camp and impressed scouts and the organization’s front office with his ability to consistently barrel the baseball. Scouts came out of spring training a little unsure of his defensive position, but confident that he would eventually hit big league pitching.

Two months later, however, Caleb Gindl is hitting .200/.254/.344 in 45 Triple-A games, and the organization is left wondering what exactly went wrong. The statistics suggest it’s just a matter of time before things improve dramatically for the right fielder. The first step in that direction could have happened on Monday, as he went 2-for-4 with his fourth home run of the season.

The main reason we should not be overly concerned with Gindl’s slow start to the season lies in the peripheral numbers. His walk rate has dropped, but his strikeout rate has not ballooned. It has remained decent at 20.7%. His BABIP numbers are unbelievably low at .227. He has also continued to show power against left-handed pitching, which is important for his development. All four of his home runs this season have been against southpaws.

Every prospect must navigate through struggles in his developmental process. By the end of the season, we will hopefully be discussing his tough start to the season as a mere blip on the radar screen. No reason to panic at this point.
