DateQuestionAnswer
2019-08-28 12:00:00 (link to chat)What does it take for an UDFA to start registering as worth noting to a scout? Mike Ford is doing decently enough, but it took him quite some time to get any trust despite pretty consistent numbers in the minors. I've watched a few fairly interesting age-appropriate UDFAs shine in the low-minors (e.g. Devin Sweet) but what does it usually demand to get on your radar?
(Stev-amos from Bern)
Jarrett Seidler will yell at me if I don't mention that he always liked Mike Ford. The problem with Ford types is you don't know if the approach and average bat speed will really play against major league arms. He was also more of a medium power guy until this year, and well there's the whole thing about the baseball. Ultimately after a year or so, I am not looking at draft pedigree, although you never get completely rid of it. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
