Chris Aguila Report

Chris Aguila, OF, Florida Marlins
Drafted 96th Overall (3rd Rd), 1997 Draft, HS, Reno, NV
Bats R/Throws R
26 YO, 5'11", 180 lbs

He's one of the older players who still qualify for the title of prospect. He's not an elite player, but he's usable as a role player.

2004 Albuquerque: .312/.380/.494, 23 2B, 2 3B, 1 HR, 37 BB, 82 K, 330 AB
2004 Florida: .222/.255/.511, 2 2B, 1 3B, 3 HR, 2 BB, 12 K, 45 AB
Career Minor League: .272/.336/.424, 170 2B, 26 3B, 72 HR, 277 BB, 685 K, 2889 AB

Baseball Prospectus's PECOTA system projects him to hit .252/.315/.411 in the show this season, which seems fairly reasonable when considering how much Albuquerque's park inflates his rate stats in the PCL. He isn't going to hit many home runs, but he can hit a little bit and he has a really good glove for a corner outfielder. He's a good 4th outfielder. I'd probably prefer to give Aguila playing time over the aging Jeff Conine.

ETA: Opening Day
2 1/2 Stars
