Default Tribune Interview with Jordan Danks

Link

2 for 2 off Stephen Strasburg isn't too shabby.

Danks is rostered to play in the Arizona Fall League "Rising Stars" Game. MLB Network is scheduled to show it live at 7:00 pm CST on Saturday night.

Jordan is the only Sox rep. But they managed to put four cubbies on the team. C.J. Retherford gets no respect.

Castro, Vitters, and Cashner are much better prospects that CJ, Morel, and the glut of mediocre pitchers we sent to the AFL.

You guys do know that players are sent to the AFL to showcase them for trades as much as they are sent for the extended playing time.

Do you think the Sox are showcasing Danks?

Also, do you think Danks could develop into a solid leadoff hitter/CF for the Sox?

I highly doubt they are showcasing Danks. He had a wrist injury during the latter half of the season and missed a significant amount of games. This is him getting some work in.

Defensively he could play in the bigs right now. His bat likely needs some work. Most scouts/reports have him projected as a solid regular but not a star. He hasn't shown the power that he was projected to have and many think it won't come. They see him as a solid defender who will hit for average, walk some, and steal some bases. He isn't going to be an ideal leadoff type unless he cuts down on the K's though.

Ryan Sweeney is a comp I've seen thrown around alot.
