...well above average skills in all ways.. on the defensive side of the ball.. has a strong arm..not a bazooka.. has very good range.. but not superior range.. especially to his right.. He will be able to stay at SS as a solid all around middle infielder.. He's that pick a team takes while looking to save a few scheckels (signing below slot is possible.... and not just because of the current situation MLB finds itself).. What really stands out about him is his potential with the bat.. He really has great bat speed.. couple that with a short/compact swing allows him to put the bat on the ball.. That is the key to this kid's future.. and he does that as well as any SS prospect out there.. Without a lot of history this spring.. he's a risk... one worth taking if not for...Every time I read a blurb, or see a clip on HS SS Ed Howard, he just strikes me like a great fit for the Tribe. I see him mocked in various spots in the first round, but somewhat in the Indians selection range. Obviously this is a very strange year, but any strong feelings for Howard, one way or another?
With the Indians system stacked with so many middle infielders.. it wouldn't surprise me to see Ed Howard passed when it comes time for the tribe to pick.. Thoughts?..
