David Stockstill's scouting report on Pita Rona

David Stockstill's scouting report on Pita Rona

PostPost #1 by Jordan Tuwiner » February 3rd, 2012, 6:38 pm

The Orioles signed Pita Rona -- a third baseman from New Zealand -- a few weeks ago. Here's what David Stockstill had to say about Rona in an article on Baseball America:

"Pita Rona is a very athletic young player who has been successful at softball, a big game internationally for New Zealand," director of international operations David Stockstill said. "He runs well, has good bat accuracy, shows good power potential and has good throwing accuracy. He's 6-feet-5. He's been a softball player and is switching over to baseball. We believe he has the raw tools and the ability to make the switch and become a very good baseball player. We believe his foot quickness and arm strength will allow him to make the adjustment from softball shortstop to baseball third base."

LOL

seriously though, it's a signing I can't complain with at all. He certainly has a project-able body frame
