Arizona Fall League Roundup: Mesa-Peoria Score 27 Runs

New, comments

There were 27 runs, 37 hits, 9 errors and 8 walks in the Mesa-Peoria game on Tuesday afternoon. Before I highlight the hitting stars in this one, here is an excerpt from Kevin Goldstein's Monday Ten Pack yesterday:

Zack Cox, 3B, Cardinals (AFL: Rafters)  Because of the late deal, he played just four games in the Gulf Coast League during the regular season, so he's getting more experience in the Arizona Fall League and looking overmatched so far, with a 2-for-19 line that includes nine strikeouts. While scouts believe he can hit, he's a bad-bodied third baseman with a single-plane swing that's not conducive to power, and right now he's the winner of toughest scout quote from the Arizona Fall League so far, with one observer telling me, "I have no idea how you give that guy a big-league deal."

Quite interesting, but BA's Jim Callis and ESPN's Keith Law both think he can be a middle-of-tjhe-order hitter in the majors. Speaking of KLaw, he wrote a scouting report on Royals pitching prospect Mike Montgomery yesterday and stated that if healthy, he can be a Top 25 prospect heading into the 2011 season.
