Baseball America’s Prospect Sheet features Lastings Milledge

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ July 8, 2011 1:15 pm

In the ‘Blast from the past’ section:

Lastings Milledge, of, White Sox: Milledge is still just 26, so we could still see the former Mets prospect back in the big leagues with a shot to rebuild his career. But for now, he’s having to prove himself again at Triple-A Charlotte. He did his share this week, hitting .367/.387/.800. If nothing else, Milledge illustrates how tough it is to be a righthanded corner outfielder in the big leagues. He has hit .287/.361/.432 against lefties in his career, which likely would have been enough to keep him in the majors. But his .261/.314/.378 career numbers against righthanders (in more than twice as many plate appearances) have been the difference between a long big league career and plenty of trips on the Triple-A-major league shuttle.

Milledge is hitting .292/.360/.480/.840 with 25BB and 38 K in 283 PA. Other numbers: .319 BABIP, 43% GB%, 13% LD%, 33 RC, 4.30 RC/27, .363 wOBA, 114 wOBA+, 129 OPS+.
