Taken from the 2013 Baseball America Prospect Handbook, in which he would have been the 25th best prospect for the Toronto Blue Jays: " Bucerra has strength and above average raw power, but his bat draws mixed reviews. His swing can get long and has an uppercut, which may detract from his ability to hit for average. Bucerra is a plus runner who fits best in the outfield despite playing shortstop as an amature. He doesn't have the hands or arm for shortstop and figured to get to big for the position anyway. He fits in centerfield now and may have to shift to left if he loses speed when he fills out.
Bucerra is 6'4" tall and 190 lbs. He is only 19 years old, born Oct 1, 1994.
"Is he going to platoon with Cowgill? "
Not unless Cowgill ends up in A ball. Bucerra is only 18, he won't be playing in the majors for a while yet.
Are your pantyhose binding this morning? What says a fan can't look at and speculate on what might be with a young prospect? Without relating it to the Major League club right now. Does a post have to start with"while I am happy with the big club I......."
No you just have to take any talk about the minors and twist it to say that it is the only bright spot in the organization. What a dooosh!
"Scouts never say..."This guy stinks"....or...."This guy can't hit." They say stuff like..."His bat draws mixed reviews" ...or... "He has problems with his swing" Is that the final word? "
Actually they don't say anything about them at all if they aren't worth their time.
