The first month of pro baseball in Florida has almost come to a conclusion. Here are some fresh notes and video from early on.
Zach Kirtley, 1B Peoria Chiefs (St. Louis Cardinals) Video
Surprisingly advanced understanding of the zone. This is the third time I've seen him this season, 20 percent strikeout rate to 9 percent walk rate that will improve with reps.
Don't know if I see much power projection, line-drive hitter, gap power at best without plan adjustments. - Swing is compact, little bit of an exaggerated wrap up that if cleaned up, should shorten swing and improve approach even more.
Don't know what future is, but he's not mentioned enough in Cardinals prospect circles.
