On occasion, we have been featuring videos here from the SoxProspects YouTube page. Today's video is of Greenville center fielder Luis Alexander Basabe. The video features the 19-year-old both in batting practice and in-game action earlier this season.
Basabe got off to a slow start this year while adjusting to Low-A pitching, but since June 1, he is batting .298/.364/.511 with eight home runs and 16 steals. He dipped slightly in the SoxProspects rankings in May, but now sits firmly in the eighth spot. Basabe is an athletic player with loud tools, who appears to be figuring out this level's challenges.
We have been incorporating more video this year to supplement our regular scouting material, so check back here and on the YouTube page frequently.
