Comments
Hitting ability: Glaesmann has a smooth stroke, but doesn't always center the ball or make consistent contact. It's a quick and short swing, but there's no load to it, leading to a lack of leverage and timing.
Power:Has fringe average power. If he can fix his swing, there might be more there.
Running speed:He's an above-average runner, even after coming off an ankle injury.
Base running:Demonstrates good instincts on the basepaths.
Arm strength:Has an average outfield arm.
Fielding:He's played a decent center field, but might be better suited as a right fielder in the future.
Range:Has pretty good range thanks to his speed.
Physical Description:Glaesmann is a big, athletic two-sport standout with a Chipper Jones type body.
Medical Update:A broken right ankle suffered during the football season limited him to DH duties for the first part of the season, but he was back in the outfield and appeared to be full strength.
Strengths:Speed, athleticsm, instincts.
Weaknesses:There are some questions about his ability to hit.
Summary:Glaesmann is an extremely athletic high school outfielder who is a two-sport standout. A football injury (ankle) slowed him early, but he was back to full strength by April. He certainly looks the part and uses his athleticism to his advantage on the field, particularly with his better than average speed. His setup and approach at the plate needs some serious tinkering, but the team that thinks they can fix that might take a shot.
