TD's Top Prospects-#19 Batter


Posted by Lionel on April 21, 2009.

Ryan Keedy

Rank: #19 Batter (TD), Unranked Prospect (BA)

Age: 23

Position(s): 1B

Team(s): Boise

Acquired: Drafted-16th Round (2008)

'08 Key Composite Stats: .333 BA, .419 OBP, 40 RBI's 70 games, 7 errors

Breakdown: Ryan Keedy had the third highest batting average of anyone in the Cubs farm system in 2008 and the eighth highest on base percentage. Having such a high BA and OBP is what landed him in the #19 spot on the list. But, unfortunately, he almost had a higher OBP than slugging percentage, which was .437. 3 HR's in 70 games for a corner infielder is far from ideal and he only added another 15 doubles, so he probably isn't ever going to be a power hitter. 7 errors from your 1 sack isn't superb either. But if this lefthander continues to hit like Mark Grace, he may find his way to the bigs in some capacity.
