From John Fay:
Dusty Baker likes prospect Juan Francisco a lot.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“He can hit,Ã¢â‚¬Â Baker said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s what you want young hitters to be. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s aggressive. You want a young hitter that you can tone down, versus tone up. You want guys to be selective and go deep in the count, but thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s something that comes with experience. With young hitters, you want to see them aggressive.”
Francisco, 21, is very aggressive — 62 walks and 353 strikeouts in 1,426 minor league at-bats.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hard to turn that flame up.”
The article goes on to talk about how well Francisco played in Winter Ball.
And there is one thing to say about his “aggressiveness”, he won’t be clogging up the base paths with all those horrible walks.
