SCOUTING REPORT
Ball is an interesting two-way prospect. The consensus seems to be that he’s better as a hitter, but it’s a lot closer than most two-way players. He’s got a lot of upside as a hitter. Baseball America calls him a five-tool potential outfielder. Jonathan Mayo says he has a Shawn Green look to him at the plate, with an easy stroke that should add power. As a pitcher he throws 89-92 with a loose arm and a tall, projectable frame. The odds for hitting prospects tend to be better than pitching prospects. If the Pirates took Ball, he’d have more value to them as a hitter, since they’ve got plenty of tall, projectable pitchers in the system. The pitching does add some value, giving Ball a fallback plan if his hitting career fades early.
