Jake Fox? This year's minors version of N.Cruz?

Postby Padsin05 » Wed Apr 29, 2009 6:34 am

seems every year an older player comes outta no where and posts an absolue monster year in AAA, bringing speculations

what I know about Fox is that he is 26 almost 27

and so far this year he has
Jake Fox homered yet again for Triple-A iowa on Tuesday, giving him five in his last five games and 12 for the season.

Albert Pujols has nothing on Fox, who is batting .446/.512/1.068 in 74 at-bats. What makes it especially remarkable is that he's struck out 21 times. When he makes contact, he's hitting an astounding .623. Still, there's no way he would have more useful than Milton Bradley over the last couple of weeks.

this was from Rotoworld, anyone have any insight? Maybe more of a Jack Cust type guy late bloomer down the road?

From everything I've read he is a defensive nightmare and his only hitting plus is his power. If D. Lee gets hurt I could see him getting a shot but otherwise I don't think he is leaving Iowa.
