This section is dedicated to Charlie Saponara’s scouting reports and prospect analysis.
My scouting background: I played baseball through the college level and have coached at both the high school and collegiate levels. Over the past ten years I have worked in several minor league front offices on top of attending more minor league games that major league games throughout the years. My understanding of hitting/pitching mechanics combined with a knowledge of advances statistics has brought about many accurate projections such as my assessment of Curtis Granderson’s mechanical adjustments back in October of 2010.
