Another Hultzen Teammate Tapped, 3B Proscia to M’s at #213
Wacky. And yet I told everyone this would happen.
Proscia was better regarded than Hicks. He was a Don Bosco Prep guy in HS, and that’s a school that you hear a lot about if you listen to the draft long enough. He was also a football player way back when. That means, surprise, strong arm, and some other decent abilities on the defensive front. Not too much range though. He seems to compensate for that though as he’s able to pick it a bit and all of his other abilities are good enough to adapt to that.
He hit eight home runs for Virginia this year and nineteen doubles, so he has some pop in his swing and looks to have decent bat speed and a pretty level swing. It seems that a lot of his swing is upper body and he’s just barely able to work his hips in, but Matt Mangini was the same way for a long time until we fixed him last year and he turned into an interesting hitting prospect.
