Position Player of the Week – Chance Sisco, C (Low-A, Delmarva)
.367/.406/.433 (11/30) with 2 2B, 2 RBI, 2 BB, 5 k
Sisco is beginning to display the statistics to go along with his true bat-to-ball skills. Sisco has a long ways to go offensively and defensively, but the underlying skills are very intriguing and he could end up being a catcher that hits for a consistent average. He shows flashes of his skills in the first two months, but simply flashes. When I watched him in the backfields at Spring Training, I couldn’t believe how smooth his swing was and how talented he was at barreling up the ball. In case you missed it, I had a full scouting report on Sisco over at Baseball Prospectus.
