Felix Pie Report

Felix Pie, CF, Chicago Cubs
Signed as an Undrafted Free Agent, 2001, Dominican Republic
Bats L/Throws L
19 YO, 6'2", 175 lbs

He's the toolsy kind of player that gets overrated by scouts, but he's starting to turn those tools into skills. He was already a very good defensive center fielder thanks to his great speed, strong arm, and good instincts. But now he's starting to hit the ball with some authority. He hit .297/.358/.441 as a 19 year old in the Florida State League. Not bad. The FSL is not the best place to be a hitter, especially one who is the equivalent of a college sophomore. I like the progress he's making. He'll still be a bit overrated by scouts, but this is clearly a good prospect. He'll start 2005 in AA

ETA: 2007
