The Prospects Live crew digs into multiple players from the Midwest League in this edition of live looks.
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.
