WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Argo was the fourth best prospect in a weak Illinois class this year.  He struggled early in 2011, leading to a down year at the plate compared to previous years.  In fact, his hitting has gotten weaker each year and he hasn’t repeated the good power he showed as a freshman.  He homered in each of his first three at-bats at the college level in 2009.  He’s a plus runner, with 76 steals in his three year career, and has the range and arm strength to stick in center field.
