Scouting Report Nick Evans

Nick Evans- #6
25 years old
4th major league season
6'2" 220 pounds (lost an inch from last year and gained 10 pounds)
Bats R/Throws R

To Read his 2010 scouting report, click here.
The Good: In the minors, Evans has crushed left-handed pitching, sporting a .303/.380/.554 line against them (going into 2010). He played in 125 games between AA and AAA in 2010, and he had a great year: 125 games, 23 HR, .300/.371/.536. He played in 20 games for the Mets (only 37 plate appearances), and he continued to hit LHP (as expected).
The Bad:  Fringe/below-average defender in the outfield, fair at 1B. He also doesn't walk often (5.3% in the majors, 8.5% in the minors, which is a major league average).
Role: Could be an effective part in a platoon at 1B now/in the future. He is out of options, so if he doesn't make the team, then he will need to be put on waivers and some other team will see his value and pick him up. The Mets have given him the most at bats of any player on the team so far this spring, which is what they should do.
I really hope the Mets don't tell him to pack his bags...
This weekend: the 2nd base circus of scouting reports.
