Cavan Biggio 2019 Outlook

Recommended Posts

He plays more than a few positions. I wonder if he will be a super utl.

Every time I land a prospect I feel like I'm catching a rare Pokémon.

 

Go Cavan!

If I'm reading it right, he's played throughout his minor league career:

28 - 1B

264 - 2B

46 - 3B

2 - LF

7 - RF

I’d like to temper expectations but I can’t.

Will be interesting to see how he handles primo fastballs. Seemed to be only weakness when I saw him in AFL

Not in the same class...but been a late bloomer so the prospect ranks may not have given him his just due. Been taking like a top prospect for nearly a year now.

It depends how you want to compare them. Power wise, not as favorably. I might like Riley more, someone else might prefer Rodgers, but at the end of the day nobody knows which of us will be right. Biggio is an elite talent and he's high enough on enough prospect lists that he's a must grab if those other guys were.

He has a decent blend of power/speed to go along with an elite walking percentage.   Batting average probably lucky to be north of .250ish.  Still I could see some value as a MI type if your squad had a need there.   Of course if you have a spot it doesn't hurt to grab just in case you goes off.  Photo above notwithstanding he comes from a great bloodline...

Why BA lucky? He doesn't strike out much and has great contact rate.

Go BIGg or go home...

 

Now the question is does he play 2B or OF for every day reps?

who would be a MLB comparison? 

 

I read a scouting report.  They compared him to Todd Walker.  

He has unusual metrics for sure.  Struck out a lot last season but really improved in that area this season but did give up some power.   Great eye at the plate.  Good defender.  

I think he sticks.  

Think he hits leadoff before VG Jr. which would be perfect.

He's done better  this year but his minor league career rate is not what you can call "great".  Don't forget Triple A numbers are inflated across the board this year.  He's also a career .255 minor league hitter so...

AAA numbers are inflated across the board because they are playing with the MLB ball.
