Val Pascucci Report

Val Pascucci, OF/1B, Montreal Expos
Drafted 15th Round, 1999 Draft, Oklahoma
Bats R/Throws R
25 YO, 6'6", 230 lbs

He hit .298/.423/.577 in Edmonton with 32 doubles, 25 home runs, 82 walks, and 95 K's in 392 at bats. He could be a major league regular right now and I'm not sure why the Expos didn't give him more of a chance. He obviously is a disciplined hitter with power. He does strike out more than you'd like, but given the other parts of his game, I think that's nitpicking. With Nick Johnson being made of glass, Pascucci should get a chance soon. He should do well. He has to break into the majors soon. He'll be 26 in November, and time is running out.

He's a capable, but unspectacular defender both on an outfield corner and at first. His speed is marginal. His only real strength is his bat.

ETA: Early 2005
3 1/2 Stars
