WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Figueroa is a small outfielder who’s already 20, even though he’s played only one season.

2013
DSL:  270/342/392, 237 AB, 7 2B, 8 3B, 2 HR, 28 BB, 40 K, 7-10 SB

Figueroa was 19 by his debut season.  He had a solid year, hitting for average and some power, and drawing walks at a decent rate.  He played a little center, but mostly in left.

2014
R+:  234/279/297, 209 AB, 9 2B, 2 3B, 12 BB, 44 K, 3-5 SB

Figueroa was the primary center fielder at Bristol.  He struggled at the plate, with a high K rate for a hitter with little power.  The assignment was probably a little challenging, but his hitting didn’t improve over the course of the season.

Figueroa will probably go to Morgantown in 2015.  His playing time may depend on the other players available to play center.
