Kyle Stowers 2021

Recommended Posts

Kyle Stowers is having a kind of interesting under the radar season.  Currently he’s hitting .261/.386/.478 with  6 homers and 29 RBI in 31 games.   He has a lot of swing and miss in his game, 48 K’s in 140 PA, and he also walks a ton.  Those K’s are a big worry but he’s still pretty interesting to watch.

I saw him demolish a pitch on Thursday at Bowling Green but then not much after that and he dropped a fly ball to cost Aberdeen a game Saturday. I agree though that he is one to watch.

HR #11 overall tonight. Is he turning into a top 10/15 prospect within the organization by the time next season's lists are released?

He should be. Has the speed and athleticism to play center with a 60 grade arm. High OBP and huge game power. He does have pretty big swing and miss concerns though. Fangraphs had him at #12 and with the season he’s having he probably earned himself a top 10 ranking there at least.

Does he have speed to play center?

I have not seen much good video on him, but the numbers are nice to see. From what little I have seen, I think his swing tends to be long. And I wonder if he can handle plus velo.

76 Ks in 185 ABs is more than a problem. No way he’ll be able to hit ML pitching. I’m guessing he’s just selling out for HRs in most ABs. 

K's at 28% so far in July after K'ing near 38% in June, so there is some improvement there.

He walks a lot too. I wonder if his Ks are more swinging or looking. If he’s trying to establish the strike zone that’s much better than just not being able to put the bat on the ball.

MLB prospect ranking says he has average speed and projects as a left fielder.

That’s what I always thought. I also think I’ve read (somewhere?) that he’s got an arm that could play in right but I don’t recall anything about him being a potential CF.

I recall when he was drafted, some were saying he might have enough speed to do so. I don’t see a good fit there.

The game I attended, he struck out in consecutive at bats.   5 of the 6 strikes were fastballs above the belt that he couldn’t catch up to.  So it looked like high heat was a weakness.
