Greg Veloz Struggles

Lastings MilledgeAnalyst IOctober 24, 2008

As one of the top second base prospects for the Mets, Veloz is a raw athletic player with a ton of potential. He has good gap power which can be seen in his statistics for doubles and triples. Though Veloz needs to work on his strikeouts as he put up 113 combined St. Lucie/Savannah in 132 games. Scouts have also said that he is a little shaky on defense but he is only 20, and he is one of the Mets better second base prospects along with Reece Havens, Hector Pellot, and Emanuel Garcia. Though, at this point in time I would call him the top second base prospect. So now that Veloz is struggling, look to see how he bounces back and see how resilient the young kid is.
