Here’s what they have to say on Eduardo Escobar:
What he needs to improve: Considering he’s never going to hit for power, it’s all about batting eye and plate discipline. Escobar doesn’t walk much and strikeouts a bit too much for a slap hitter. He also needs to improve his base stealing ability. He has the speed to be a base stealing threat.
Seems the Sox system is pretty thin here.
Cowley says trade Flowers and re-sign AJ. Joe says trade Marquez too. Who will take him?
FutureSox notes from Buddy Bell’s conference call:
- On Dayan Viciedo: “He has such great hands. He can sit back and drive the ball the other way.” However, he said Dayan gets opposite field happy and gets anxious. They are trying to get him to stay behind the ball more because he is so quick.
- David Holmberg looks real good. He has great instincts for his age, but they will be slower with him this year because there are older guys they need to see at a higher level. He has big upside. The coaches don’t have to tell him twice what to do.
Buddy Bell mentions correcting Tyler Flowers’ swing like Kenny Williams.
He also touches on Gregory Infante, Dan Remenowsky, C.J. Retherford, Jordan Danks, John Shelby, Kyle Bellamy.
