Fred Lewis Report

Fred Lewis, CF, San Francisco Giants
Drafted 66th Overall (2nd Rd), 2002 Draft, Southern University
Bats L/Throws R
23 YO, 6'2", 190 lbs

It's starting to come together for him. He was drafted as an athlete, but he's learning how to hit. And he's a quick study. He hit .301/.424/.451 with 20 doubles, 11 triples, 8 home runs, 85 walks, and 109 K's in 439 at bats. He even stole 33 bases with a 70% success rate. He's very fast, and great athleticism. He could add some power to his game, but even if he doesn't he looks like a good leadoff hitter prospect.

The only caveat I find is that his numbers were probably inflated by the California League. He's talented. And he's turning that talent into real skills pretty quickly. I like his chances of turning into a major league player.

ETA: 2006
3 1/2 Stars
