Anthony Gwynn Report

Anthony Gwynn, OF, Milwaukee Brewers
Drafted 39th Overall (2nd Rd), 2003 Draft, San Diego State
Bats L/Throws R
22 YO, 6'0", 185 lbs

Gwynn was overdrafted in 2003 based on his .357 batting average as a junior at San Diego State, and of course his bloodlines. He isn't going to turn into his father. He doesn't have the hitting to do so. He is a gifted defensive center fielder and base stealer though, which could be his route to a major league career.

2004 Huntsville: .243/.318/.311, 20 2B, 5 3B, 2 HR, 53 BB, 95 K, 34 SB, 16 CS, 534 AB
mL Career: .255/.333/.316, 28 2B, 5 3B, 3 HR, 85 BB, 126 K, 48 SB, 18 CS, 770 AB

He has little or no power, and while he draws walks, he doesn't make enough good contact to give himself a decent OBP. He looks like a perfect candidate to be a 5th outfielder in the Major Leagues, but unless he has an unexpected breakout season with the bat, his upside looks like Coco Crisp lite.

ETA: 2007
