Franklin Labour OF Giants

Recommended Posts

Starting to be hard to ignore Giants OF, Franklin Labour.  The 6'1 190lb Labour was signed out of the DR in 2015.  It would be an understatement to say that he has been absolutely destroying the NWL having hit 14Hrs in only 130ABs.  His line so far as follows:

130ABs, 14HRs, .338AVG, .423OBP, .746SLG

He turned 21 in May, so obviously we will have to see if he is moved up to Low A before year's end and how he starts to fare against better pitching.  Still, if he does start to hit there, then I can definitely see him moving up lists.  Having read an article on Labour, it is his goal to get to the MWL by end of year so he can play winter ball in the DR this off-season.  Seems like the kid is a hard worker and is always looking to get better.  Anyways, a guy to keep watching.

He is now #18 in MLBs updated organizational list for SF. Think he's a guy to watch!

 

"Labour's carrying tool is his plus raw power to all fields. His chances of maximizing his home run production are enhanced by his feel to hit from the right side of the plate. He makes consistent hard contact, manages the strike zone well and doesn't get too pull-conscious.

While most of Labour's value comes from his offense, he's a decent athlete who makes up for his below-average speed with his instincts. He provides average range and arm strength on the outfield corners. He also earns praise for his intelligence and is fluent in both English and Spanish."

Not horrible for a guy a few years older than his competition.  

Promoted to Low-A Augusta.  4-6 in his first two games.
