Scouting Report David Wright

David Wright- #5

28 years old
6'0" 210 pounds
8th major league season
Bats R/Throws R
The Good: The face of the franchise. A complete player who has seen his strike out rate significantly rise since the Matt Cain beaning and the resulting concussion in 2009.  Career .305 hitter, and .383 OBP. Has averaged 23 steals the last 5 years. His power/isolated power returned last year, and he hit 29 home runs, making it 26 home runs or more for 5 of the past 6 years. He does most of his damage versus fastballs and sliders.
Get off of your heels and on to your toes!
The bad: He struck out > 25% of his plate appearance for the 2nd year in a row (previous 4 years was 19%). His swing and miss % jumped to a career high last year, 10.4%, particularly struggling versus curve-balls. The last two years his fielding metrics have not been good, and the fans reports concur.
Role: Starting 3B, and the main power threat in the middle of the line up

My projections: 670 plate appearance, 90 runs, 28 Home Runs, 105 RBIs, 20 SB, .300/.375/.500
