I know this is kind of late, but he is two cents on Spidale....

Gritty player full of hustle. Excellent speed, plays the OF well. Hit better than expected in Birmingham last year. Patient at the plate and draws walks. Can steal bases. Doubles power mostly. Will pop a few long ones, but not regularly. Arm is weak, limiting him to LF on most occasions. Nice player who could project to be a 4th or 5th OF in the bigs. Doubtful he has enough to play everyday.

He was considered to be on the fence between going to Charlotte and coming back to Birmingham this year. Obviously, he is headed to Charlotte, but I hear will begin the season on the DL (not sure if that is just because of roster space or if he is really hurt). My best guess is he will be a reserve OF in Charlotte or get sent back to Bham where, unless someone gets hurt, he will be a reserve behind Jerry Owens, Chris Young and Ryan Sweeney.
