Daily Prospect Report 10/6

Shane Costa, CF, Kansas City Royals
Drafted 42nd Overall (2nd Round), 2003 Draft, Cal State Fullerton
Bats L/Throws R
22 YO, 6'0", 200 lbs

Let's stay in Wilmington and cover another interesting member of the Blue Rocks. Costa has physical ability and came into the season with a reputation for good plate discipline. He's currently reworking his swing to adjust for wood bats. He hit .308/.364/.417 with 33 walks, 43 K's, 20 doubles, 4 triples, and 7 home runs in 451 at bats. He supplemented the OBP by getting hit by 11 pitches. He obviously could use some more home runs and a couple dozen more walks, but I'm cautiously optimistic that he'll improve on those secondary skills in the near future. He has good range in center field. He's no elite prospect, but he's still a good one.
