Blue Jeans Posted July 29, 2006 Share Posted July 29, 2006 We have a 1st baseman down in St Lucie(A+) who is being said to be extremely similar to David Wright, when he was in A, A+, etc this kid turned 20 on June 30th, so he is BARELY 20 now..but here is what his stats are compared to Wrights, and what I think this kid can become.. First, here is NYFS' scouting report on Carp: Hitting Uses an open stance at the plate. Has a good disciplined approach at the plate for a young hitter. Has excellent line drive/gap power right now. May become a consistent .300 hitter as he develops because of his patience and ability. Scouts compare him to Darin Erstad or Mark Grace at this point in his career, but looks to be much better than those two later on. Running Is an intelligent player so that helps him on the base paths in making decisions. Does not have good speed however. If he makes a play on the base paths its probably going to be because he made a smart decision. Defense Steady defensively right now. He won't amaze you defensively but he won't hurt his team defensively either. Shouldn't ever need to be moved from firstbase because of defensive issues. Sounds a LOT like Wright at a younger age to me... Now, here are the numbers Wright @ age 19 in Hagerstown: .266/.367/.401 with a .768 OPS, 132 for 496, 30 2b, 11 HR, 93 RBI, 21/26 SBs, 76 BBs, 114 Ks Mike Carp @ age 18/19 in Hagerstown: .249/.358/.476, .834 OPS, 78 for 313, 12 2b, 1 3b, 19 HR, 63 RBI, 2/4 SBs, 35 BBs, 96 Ks David Wright @ 20 in FSL: .270/.369/.459, .828 OPS, 126 for 466, 39 2b, 2 3b, 15 HR, 75 RBI, 19/24 SBs, 72 BBs, 98 Ks Mike Carp @ 19/20 in FSL: .293/.394/.429, .814 OPS, 108 for 365, 23 2b, 1 3b, 10 HR, 63 RBI, 2 SBs, 42 BBs, 75 Ks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
