DateQuestionAnswer
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of upside does Medica have this year?
(higgsboson from Guelph)
Tommy Medica, you mean? He gets shaky reviews from scouts, with many pegging him as a bench bat type. Maybe he works his way into a platoon or something, but I don't see huge upside there. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Why doesn't Tommy Medica get more prospect love. Was hurt as a C but now at 1b/OF and raking. Sure he's older for his levels but he looks like a good player with a good eye and power. What do we have here?
(TheKernel from Pasadena)
I've never been a big believer in Medica; even as a catcher. The numbers in the Cal League in 2011 and 2012 are impressive, but it's the Cal League. He hit well last year in the Texas League as well, but all the reports I've received indicate the bat speed was a little on the fringy side and it likely doesn't play at a 1B or corner OF level in MLB. He's a pretty classic tweener that may have a career on an MLB bench. (Mark Anderson)
