The Giants’ first-round pick in today’s draft looks like an exciting player. He hit .438 at Cal State Fullerton this year, has a ton of speed, and has a good glove (the latter two fit the park at China Basin quite nicely, since he’s a centerfielder). So why am I not surprised by this excerpt from the scouting report at ESPN?
Brown [made] a ton of contact but never walking … there's a risk that this is the Juan Pierre (offensive) toolbox all over again, since he doesn't have much pop and his patience is only visible with an electron microscope. [emphasis added]
