Gulf Coast League Blue Jays
Reggie Pruitt, 18-yrs-old
Like Earl Burl III, don’t judge this book by its draft position. Pruitt is as fast as they come and has a high upside. He played all of his 33 games in CF, posting 2.24 RangeFactor and .925Fld% while committing 6 errors and not registering an OF assist.
With the stick, Pruitt produced slightly below league average number with .300 wOBA, 87 wRC+, with little power .066 ISO.
Overall Pruitt impressed with his speed in his first season with a slash line of .223/.309/.289, a .599OPS, 6 doubles, a triple, 12 RBI, 15SB, 8.3BB%, 25.7K%, and .314 BABIP.
Launching pad- Reggie should repeat the GCL, but could start the year as Bluefield’s starting CF.
Kalik May 23-yrs-old
May had an excellent year for the GCL Blue Jays. Kalik played 23 games in CF, 14 in RF, and 2 in LF. In total he registered 3 assists, committed 3 errors, while posting 2.05 RangeFactor and .963Fld%.
Kalik May produced excellent .383 wOBA, and 139 wRC+ with some decent power from the CF spot, good for a .145 ISO.
Overall Kalik hit .261/.376/.406 with a .782OPS, 6 doubles, 4 triples, 2HR, 12RBI, 10SB, 11.5BB%, 25.5K% and .358 BABIP in 42 games.
Launching pad- this a tough one. Given his age and numbers, I don’t see him starting in Bluefield, so let’s put in Vancouver…but in what capacity???
Next: These guys are young and raw...
