TD's Top Prospects-#21 Batter

Posted by Lionel on April 10, 2009.

Ty Wright

Rank: #21 Batter (TD), #25 Prospect (BA)

Age: 24

Position(s): LF

Team(s): Daytona

'08 Key Composite Stats: .300 BA, 72 RBI's, 60 runs, 7 of 9 SB's

Acquired: Drafted-7th Round, 2007

Breakdown: There isn't anything extra special about Ty Wright's performance in '08, until you get to the part where he had 72 RBI's. That ranks 6th in the Cubs organization, behind only Hoffpauir, Jake Fox, Casey McGehee (now a bench player for the Brewers), Jovan Rosa, and Tyler Colvin. I know there's an argument to be made that RBI's are more a product of getting guys on base, but given the company he's keeping, it's impressive to me. If you extrapolate it over 600 AB's, he has 101 RBI's and 84 runs scored. In addition, his .300 BA ranked him fifth among qualifying players in the Florida State League. If he were a little younger at Daytona, he'd be a little higher on these rankings.
