Hitting Prospects: What Do You Expect In 2003?

Postby MC_Hammer » Mon Feb 24, 2003 7:15 pm

I already asked about the closers, so its time to come full-circle. Now I would like to hear about what you think about the position-player prospects and rookies. What kind of numbers do you see from guys like V. Martinez, M. Olivo, Matsui, Choi, Byrd, etc.

Thanks!!

Hee Seop Choi, 1B (Chicago Cubs) - Should see the bulk of the playing time in Chicago, but manager Dusty Baker has a reputation for playing veterans over rookies, and with Eric Karros on the bench, the situation could be a little bit muddy. Still, Seop Choi’s numbers last season at AAA were a very solid .287, 36hrs, 97Rbis, 94 runs and a handful of steals. He is the future first baseman for the Cubs.

Marlon Byrd, OF (Philadelphia Phillies) - Here is a guy who will compete for Rookie Of The Year, and will quickly make Phillies’ fans forget Doug Glanville. He’s a lock at starting in centerfield on opening day. He’s got power and speed, and probably will bat 6th or 7th in the lineup. Think .280, 20-20 with 60-80 RBIs.

Choi - .285, 25 HR, 85 RBI
Byrd - .285, 20HR, 25 SB, 75 RBI

Both contend for ROY - NL

Matsui - .290, 28-30 HR, 100 RBI - NOT a rookie IMO ...

V Mart in AAA most of year, Olivo - poor avg. few SB's, 10 HR.
