Prospect Analysis: Jake Blalock

Jake Blalock is being counted on to become one of the components of Phillies teams of the future. While he hasn't shown quite the power that many thought he would, he has still put up solid numbers in the minor leagues and has shown a lot of good signs. Plus, many believe that the power may still develop.

Turn On The Power: Jake Blalock was billed as a power hitting prospect. That's one of the worst things you can do to a hitter. In four minor league seasons, Blalock has managed just 33 homeruns, but the good news is that 27 of them have come in the last two seasons. Blalock has upped his at bats / homerun mark from 58 at bats per longball over his first two seasons to 38 at bats per homerun... Recommended Stories
