Wright worth a #1 priority?

Postby Dans » Mon Jul 12, 2004 12:33 pm

Just planning ahead - is David Wright worth using the top waivers spot? Thanks.

Just in case no one else knew who they were talking about.

David Wright (Mets) 3B

A supplemental first-round pick in the 2001 draft, Wright is one of the best all-around third basemen in the minor leagues. He combines power, speed and patience at the plate offensively and has good hands, quick feet and an accurate throwing arm with a quick release on defense.

Wright tied for the Mets organizational lead with 93 RBIs while playing in the lower-level Class A South Atlantic League in 2002. Last year, he hit .275 with 15 homers and 75 RBIs as an advanced Class A Florida State League All-Star. He went on to lead the St. Lucie Mets to a league title by hitting .391 in the playoffs.

The 21-year-old Wright began this season in the Class AA Eastern League and was leading the circuit with a .363 average when promoted to the Class AAA International League in mid-June. Between the two levels, Wright ranked fourth in the National Association with a .410 average in June.

David Wright is the reason why you save your #1 waiver priority, snatch him when he is available, especially in a keeper

I know it was one game and he was probably nervous but he looked horrible last night. That being said I allready picked him up in one league that only keeps three as I feel he should make a nice August splash.
