Addison Russel SS - what do you guys think?

Postby bayside » Tue Mar 05, 2013 9:56 pm

Addison Russel was selected by the Oakland A's at #11 overall in the 2012 draft.
In his first pro season he lit up low minors pitching. shooting up prospect lists.

What do you guys think of his future impact at the MLB level? How far away is he?

He had a nice rk league last season but I try not to get too excited about rk ball. The list is way too long of players that dominated rk ball and disappointed in full season ball. He's a top 50ish prospect and pretty much a lottery pick. Anything can happen.

I took Russell over Correa in my minor league draft. I love when a hitter with pop shows power to the opposite field. His power ally is to right/center and he has a lightning quick bat. I personally feel like he'll be a top 15 prospect by this time next season.
