DateQuestionAnswer
2017-05-22 23:00:00 (link to chat)Taylor Gushue is leading MiLB with 12 homers after setting a career high with eight all of last season. Is he any sort of prospect? He's hitting the ball in the air a lot more since joining the Nationals org.
(Andrew from DC)
He's a sort of prospect, yeah. Switch-hitting catcher, SEC pedigree noted for game-calling & solid makeup. He's repeating High-A, and report I have suggests the average may be inflated by his intelligence and that context. But the swing's become more leveraged to where he's using his strength to create more power these days, and that may indeed be a legitimate development. Guy who very definitely bears watching after his (gotta be soon, right?) promotion to AA. (Wilson Karaman)
