Cito Culver Struggles In the SAL

Message non lupar jackky » sam. 12 août 2017 10:44

When the brand new York Yankees selected Cito Culver within the first round of the 2010 draft, the pick was met with surprise shock actually. From new york, the teenage shortstop was pegged like a third round pick or later by most accounts. 2 yrs later, Culvers batting average is simply above the Mendoza Line and the slugging percentage sits below .300.

So whats wrong with Culver? Maybe nothing as a scout I cro sed paths within Auburn, Ny mentioned seeing him quite a bit being an amateur and regarded Culver a much better bet to reach the major leagues like a pitcher than position player. In hearing he popped the mitt at 92-94 MPH being an amateur, one must ponder whether the Yankees would consider pulling the plug on Culver the shortstop in support of Doug Free Jersey Culver the relief pitcher.
Listed at six feet in height and 185 pounds, Culver may have been a little heavier personally as his lower half has truly began to fill out. This might limit his range some on defense, but Culver did present with fluid baseball movements and average athleticism for that shortstop position. One concern is his upper body which in fact had little discernible body building. If for some reason Culver isn't striking the training and filling out through the hips, the other has to wonder if the dimensions he is doing have is a result of adding good weight.
On defense, Culver charged ground balls to reduce his throw to first and flashed a minimum of an excellent throwing arm. Range, specifically to his backhand Joe Looney Jersey side, appeared a little suspect. However, Culver has lots of arm to help make the play which cant be said for any many minor league shortstops. For any teenager, 16 miscues in near to 100 games is definitely an acceptable number. When it comes to Culver had yet another error in 28 fewer games in 2011, his error totals become much more impre sive. At present, his saving grace on the diamond is his defensive play and the remainder of his all-around game lags considerably behind.
The switch hitter understands how to work counts and draw a free Tony Dorsett Jersey pa s. Is this a great base for you to use? Sure, but more complex pitching will challenge the Culver hitting his way on base. In the left side, Culver does his best Ichiro impre sion having a sweeping swing plane and slight lunge forward as the bat head comes through the strike zone. Of course theres only one Ichiro so imitating a Morris Claiborne Jersey swing that might too be labeled TM may not be the best idea. On paper, its also his weaker side.
Culver exhibits more strength at the plate from the right side, but his setup and load include multiple hitches which negatively affect timing. Leg kick? Check. Drops hands? Check. Unnece sary bat waggle? Check. He's too many moving parts in the swing from the right side. This makes it impo sible to repeat hitting mechanics making consistent barrel contact.
Twenty stolen bases thus far is an indicator of contained in game speed, but his 72% rate of succe s forces the i sue of methods much? At the moment, Id consider him a rather excellent runner who's prone to decelerate before reaching an age it's po sible to expect big leaguers to come to light.
If Culver continues to have 92-94 MPH off of a mound in the arm, it would help the Yankees organization to create a move sooner rather than later. There may be value to salvage there, but its probably not as a position player. Sure, prospect followers may indicate his age (19) as a need to be patient with Culver. Id use that very same age to justify why moving towards the mound ought to be revamped the winter. The younger a prospect is, the greater time he has to figure it out. Had Cito Culver not been a James Hanna Jersey former first round pick, I'd have labeled him a non-prospect and moved onto other players around the Charleston roster. Because of draft status, he will be afforded a much longer leash than a player of his true talent level probably deserves.
