Scouting Notes: Big, athletic kid; strong, former football player in high school who is now transitioning into baseball full-time in first full pro season here in 2018. Some injury history the last few years, but a physically well-built kid with plenty of upside through his frame; hopefully good health awaits as he grows, should be durable enough … Offensively, he’s starting to come around here later in the summer, but Marsh struggled mightily against High-A pitching in May after an early promotion from the Low-A Midwest League. Poor pitch recognition and plate discipline early in Cal League time, often found himself overwhelmed by even average High-A stuff. Feel to hit not nearly there for me as it is for other evaluators, and I never saw the hit tool peek out in late May look. Small window, and won’t yet discount him for it, of course, but that’s a factor in questioning whether he can get the bat on the ball consistently enough against better and better pitching the next few year; need to see some development in hit tool later in 2018/on into 2019 … All that said, Brandon Marsh has some pop in his bat: plus power in BP, average to slightly above-average at game time … Perhaps not surprising, but Brandon Marsh’s best traits right now come defensively; a former wide receiver, he gets great jumps and reads in the outfield tracking down the ball off the bat; covered quite a bit of ground (in right field) in my late May looks. Very strong arm in the outfield, as well; accuracy needs some work (three overthrows, two off-target in my look), but velo and carry are there, arm strength makes him a fit for potentially any of the three roles there depending on roster construction, likely needs reps to iron out execution … Altogether, I have a hunch he’ll ultimately be more a 50 FV outfielder than a 55 FV, but I’ll reserve judgment on Brandon Marsh until I see him once or twice more; his bat is starting to turn the corner here in the 2018 season’s second half, and real development there over the next year or two will make the difference between an average everyday guy and an above-average big leaguer.
