MJH, Jason Parks, and Jason Cole Prospect Roundtable

GREAT read.

Sample:

MJH: Moreland has shocked me this year, but I don’t know how he’ll ever see time in Arlington unless Smoak is traded. Staying with Frisco, let’s delve into Marcus Lemon. Classic big league backup middle infielder, or more than that? Or less than that?

Jason Cole: Somewhere between big league backup or less. He has looked better defensively this season. I think his arm is a little stronger and his range is a little better, particularly into the hole towards third. I think he could play solid D at shortstop and second down the line. His plate discipline and ability to make contact is still excellent. But I’m not sure he’s going to hit enough, and I don’t think his defense will be good enough to warrant him earning a consistent backup job in the Majors. I guess I’m pegging him as a utilityman that spends a lot of time in AAA and gets a couple of full big league seasons in as a backup infielder.

Jason Parks: I think he could start in the right situation, but I dont think his skill set is starter quality. I think he knows how to play the game and his make-up is excellent, but his tools just arent there. He will probably be a decent back-up infielder, but personally, I’d rather have a guy like Vallejo over a guy like Lemon. I think back-up infielders need to have plus defensive ability or plus speed. Lemon is average at best in those categories.
