Rolando Segovia 21-yrs-old
Rolando wasn’t used much in 2015, seeing 6/8/8 games in June/July/August. He didn’t make the best of that playing time striking out 28.6% and walking only 3.9%.
The young man from Venezuela hit only .203 with 3 doubles, 2 triples, 5 SB and 2 CS in 24 games.
Segovia split his time between 2nd and LF, playing 7 games at 2nd and 6 in left. At 2nd, Rolando generated 5.14 RangeFactor and .923 Fld% with 3 errors in only 39 total chances.
Launching pad– repeat 2016 with Vancouver
Ryan Metzler 22-yrs-old
Metzler improved in his second go round in Vancouver, hitting .283 with a stellar .337 wOBA and 107 wRC+. He shows a good approach at the plate with 6.9BB% and 13.8K% and decent power with 7 doubles, 2 HR, and .082 ISO in 46 games.
Ryan spent most of 2014 at 3rd, but transitioned to 2nd for the C’s in 2015. In 35 games, Ryan generated a 4.51 RangeFactor and .981Fld% while committing 3 errors in 161 total chances.
Launching pad– Ryan will head to Lansing to back up Lane Thomas. But, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him get an aggressive assignment by skipping Lo-A and head straight to Dunedin.
