Athletic build; slender frame with room for mild muscle growth.
6 Games April - June 2015
Frederick Keys (High A, Orioles)
Looks lazy at times but plays the game loose and easy. Does not work well with the Frederick pitching staff.
40; Bench Player/Below-Average Regular
Above-average bat speed; quiet upper half; loose and quick wrists; smooth and easy swing; moderate barrel control; minimal load; very mild leg lift; does not use bottom half; solid approach; recognizes spin; uses entire field and sprays the gaps.
Average raw power; starting to backspin ball more; swing has slight leverage; will play down in-game a full grade.
4.32 home to first; fringe-average runner now; likely to lose a step with continued growth.
Footwork is a mess; athleticism does not correlate behind the dish; struggles to block pitches; stabs at pitches; looks to constantly be out of sync with his pitchers; no progression in two years of watching.
Average arm strength; plays down a grade in-game; choppy footwork and long release; pop times 2.10 - 2.20.
Sisco can't catch. After multiple viewings in consecutive seasons, I see no progression and little evidence that he will be able to handle a long-term role behind the plate in the majors. The bat has been the carrying tool, with a strong approach and contact ability. He's athletic enough to play 2nd, 3rd, or corner OF, which the bat will need to hit its potential for there to be value as a regular. The risk is still high with Sisco and he is a volatile prospect due to the defensive concerns.
Round Drafted: 2nd round (61st overall), 2013. Signed for $785,000
Why: Feel for hitting; potentially athletic enough to play C; chance for average or higher hit tool and power.
