More on Pirates Prospects

Ouch. Dayn Perry (emphasis mine):

75. Andrew McCutchen, OF...

McCutchen is one of the only Pirate hitting prospects worth mentioning. He batted .709 during his senior year of high school, and he boasts exceptional speed on the bases, great range in center and command of the strike zone. He hasn't shown much power as of yet, but he has the bat speed for it. As soon as his body fills out, the power will follow. McCutchen will see full-season action for the first time in 2006, and he should do just fine. If his bat develops as anticipated, he'll be much higher on this list next year. Keep your eye on him.
