Carlos Duran Report

Carlos Duran, OF, Atlanta Braves
Signed as an Undrafted Free Agent, 1999, Venezuela
Bats L/Throws L
21 YO, 6'1", 165 lbs

Duran's a speedy center fielder whose skills are lagging far behind his tools. At the plate, he's a hacker, offering up to anything that is round and within 30 feet of plate. In his second full season for Myrtle Beach, he his an anemic .261/.295/.372 with 7 doubles, 3 triples, 3 homers, 12 walks, and 47 K's in 234 at bats. He hasn't had a really productive season with the bat since 2000 in the Venezuelan Summer League. The two bright spots in his record are his defense (which enables him to use his strong throwing arm and blazing speed) and his running on the basepaths, where he stole 13 bases this season while only being caught once. And to answer the question, no I don't believe he's related to Roberto "No Mas" Duran.
