2018 FARMHAND CROP: Andy Pages

Andy Pages

Andy Pages – Bottom Line

Cuban OF signed by the Dodgers on March 1 for the new maximum deal of $300k. Video nonexistent, info is scant, so I’m basically scouting the stat lines for now, with the very big caveat that the stats are primarily from the DSL and are therefore quite unreliable. Listed at 6’1″, 180 lbs. He’s got a nice patience, power, and speed profile. He recently moved up to the AZL Dodgers, so hopefully, we will get some more info and possibly some video on this prospect before draft time in the spring.

Hit 

Right-handed swing. Posted a .236/.393/.486 slash line in 42 games in the DSL this summer. 17.4% K-rate and 12.9% BB-rate are excellent. Cuban batters can struggle with swing-and-miss, so Pages is off to a good start. Watch the K-rate as he climbs through the minors to make sure it doesn’t climb too much as he faces off against better pitching.

Power

Led the DSL with 9 homers in 42 games prior to promotion. ISO was .250, hit a ton of flyballs (56.7%) and a good amount of them left the yard (15.3%). He’s flashed some big-time power for a player that just recently turned 18.

Speed

Stole 9 bags in 15 attempts in the DSL, posting a 5.6-speed score. Looks like he got plenty of green lights, so he’s got some wheels, and he could be a 5 category contributor

Defense

He’s played in 22 games in RF, 11 in LF, 6 in CF. It doesn’t look like the Dodgers are thinking of him as a natural CF at this point, but it looks like he’s defensively sound enough to stick as an OF.

Stats current as of August 18th.
