Kory Casto?

Postby JRM4833 » Tue Dec 04, 2007 6:10 pm

I'm looking for some info on Kory Casto. I have the option of keeping him as one of my minor league players, or putting him back in the draft for a third round minor league draft pick. Any thoughts? He was basically a throw in in a much larger trade last year and I know next to nothing about him.

He's a streaky hitter. He has a good bat though. He hits for good average and power. The move to the outfield will help him find playing time, but he's still not much to write home about.

Well, the move to the OF might have helped him if he was not in the Washington organization that has a ton of better and young OF on the team already. I personally would like to see him traded to another team and moved back to the hot corner to improve his value because he wasn't really bad there. The Twins and Phillies make sense.

Even with the added depth, he's more likely to get playing time as an outfielder than as a third baseman with Ryan Zimmerman routed at third.

Kory Casto, 3B: Closer to the majors than Marrero but trailing him in terms of ceiling, Kasto, 24, projects as a decent major league third baseman. At 6-foot-1 and 195-pound, the left-handed hitter continued to move up one level at a time, facing Double-A pitchers for the first time in 2006.

Kasto posted solid .272/.379/.468 vitals in 489 Double-A Harrisburg at-bats. He’ll begin 2007 in Triple-A New Orleans and will either be put on display as mid-season trade bait or be reconverted to the outfield.

Yeah, he obviously needs a trade.

Toss him back.

As a 26 yo in AAA (which is a little old imo), he had about 4.4 PA/k (bad) and only a 33% xBH% (also bad). Plus he hit .246.
