Franchy Cordero 2018 Outlook

Recommended Posts

The only way for young LHH to improve against LHP is to let them play, take their lumps and improve. So many organizations limit their young LHH exposure to LHP and they never develop/improve as a result. It's good to see the Padres seem set on giving this guy consistent ABs regardless of the opposing pitcher.

Hitting CLEANUP

 

Yep Villa locked in as 3 spot

 

Pirela and Franchy rotate in the 4th spot

 

Hosmer 2 with that OBP, if Margot gets on track, could be a ton of rbi situations for Franchy and Villa

That's because they can see the upside is MASSIVE.

 

If he continues to improve at the rate he's shown over the last calendar year they have a stud player.

I know this seems like a bench coach question but who has more upside Frenchy or Teoscar Gernandez?

I asked myself this same question...so I have both now. I would say Teoscar at this point, because he's been getting PT, but with Wil Myers turning into glass, the road rto PT for Cordero may not be as complicated as previously thought, especially with Margot's terrible year so far. Get both if you can, but if I didn't have room for both, I would keep Teoscar.

He's fast.

 

Got a terrible jump and still easily beat out a throw by Posey to steal 2nd.

1/3 with a B.B. vs a lefty. Not flashy but these types of games where he’s not hitting hrs but not golden sombreroing are going to be key for him so I hope he keeps it up.

Don’t look now but piriela has started at 2b 3 games in a row (and appeared at 2b in 5 straight). 

 

Padres moving mountains to keep this kid playing. Asuaje is a bum anyway I never saw how Pirielas defense was that’s bad.

It seems like Teoscar gets all the love on RW right now, but Franchy is having a great season in his own right. 

 

Teoscar is hitting .268-15-4-11-3 in 82 ABs (.224-10-3-5-2 over the last two weeks). 

Franchy is hitting .260-11-6-13-3 in 73 ABs (.310-7-4-9-1 over the last two weeks). 

 

Franchy has been hotter over the last couple of weeks, but they've been comparable over the first 19 games of their 2018 seasons.

then you have never seen Pirela play 2b

 

think of Cecil Fielder at 2B, without any agility, thats Pirela

i know he doesn't have the pedigree of other prospects but this guy would be getting mega hype if he was playing for a different team

I’m confused why he hasn’t been running when he reaches to leadoff an inning. 2 days in a row now...

Franchy is tied for second in the MLB in walks the past seven days...

 

Trout -- 8

Franchy :blink:, Belt, DeJong :blink:, Grandy, & Blackmon -- 7

 

God have mercy on the league.

If it weren't for Trout at the top I would think that list was made up.

Yeah, if you have him a keeper or dynasty you have to be ecstatic. To show so much progress this year is really encouraging. It's scary to think what he could be a couple years down the road with the tools he possesses.
