The 2012 draft class has actually done well pretty well

Recommended Posts


Mark Sappington (mentioned earlier)

Michael Roth (made it to the majors, looked solid)



Zach Wright (.361 OBP, throwing out 30% of runners)



Michael Snyder (.316/.374/.503, 27 doubles in 81 games)

Wade Hinkle (.333./.445/.575, 49 walks in 294 at bats)



Alex Yarbrough (.282 AVG) - got off to a slow start in terms of power. Has improved his power and OBP vastly thus far this season for the 66ers. Contact hitter. Worth keeping an eye on.

Sherman Johnson (.266/.417/.385, 56 walks in 64 games) Other areas might need to improve but he obviously has a really good eye.



Jonathan Walsh (.300/.411/.522, 29 extra base hits in 64 games, just as many BB's and K's)

Kyle Johnson (.321/.424/..486, contact hitter type, never been caught stealing in 16 attempts)

Joel Capote (.328/.421/.486, not too shabby for a 28th rounder)


Seems like they really got away from the hacking types and are trying to develop an organization with hitters who take pitches. This is a solid draft considering they didn't have a pick in the top 100 nor did they really catch a guy by and large considered a "steal". It's still early but the hitting stats these guys are putting up are encouraging.
