Carmen Angelini Scouting Report (2008)
Angelini was a 10th round pick in the 2007 draft after slipping due to a strong commitment to Rice University. The Yankees signed him for first round money and promoted him aggressively to the Sally after making only one GCL appearance. On the field, Angelini stood out as a player with a smooth, fluid approach and significant polish. His 0-5 evening certainly was disappointing, but his all around approach and pedigree may lead to a breakout campaign sooner rather than later.
- Looked his listed height/weight of 6’2″ 185 lbs.
- Thin through the shoulders; definite room to add strength and tone
- Excellent baseball movements
- Fundamentally sound
- Strong stance; Comfortable load
- Solid bat speed
- Struck out on hanging slider
- truck out looking after taking two strikes on bunt attempts
With a .236/.302/.295 line in his first full season, Angelini’s power ceiling looks limited. I’ve seen Derek Jeter comparisons online and was left scratching my head. While I don’t see Angelini having a hall of fame type of career, I can see him becoming an everyday major league shortstop with an offensive game similar to Orlando Cabrera.
