Henri Stanley - OF - San Diego Padres Nov 14
Padres claimed outfielder Henri Stanley off waivers from the Astros.
Unbelievable. The Astros don't generate so much talent that they can just give it away like this. Because he's always been a little old for his levels and he doesn't look great in a uniform, Stanley has never been viewed as a top prospect. However, he has a minor league OPS of just under 900. The 25-year-old for Clemson Tiger hit .292 with 11 HR, 48 RBI, 93/60 K/BB and 15 SB in 506 AB while playing half his games in one of Triple-A's best parks for pitchers last season. He could be a decent regular in the majors, but since the Padres don't currently have any room for him, he'll probably return to Triple-A next year.
If the Pads don't have room for him, he could be used for trade bait.
