Gabby Guerrero: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Guerrero has raw tools, but he showed last year for the first time the ability to hit for both average and power that scouts had predicted. Of course, it came at High-A High Desert, one of the most hitter-friendly environments in baseball. A truer test will come this year at Double-A Jackson. If Guerrero can find similar success at Jackson, then look out, as his ceiling his already very high. The nephew of Vladimir Guerrero, Gabriel is aggressive at the plate like his uncle and also has a long swing. Predictably, that led to few walks and many strikeouts last year at High-A. This is an important year for Guerrero to back up what he accomplished last year and to perhaps improve his plate discipline a bit, but he just turned 21 in December and time is on his side.
The nephew of Vladimir Guerrero, Gabriel has a similar approach at the plate – a long swing, above-average power and a willingness to expand the zone. The latter likely will lead to low walk totals and high strikeout counts, but he makes up for it with raw power. Although he totaled 30 extra-base hits at Low-A Clinton last season, just four went over the fence. That should come in time, however, as the 20-year-old's ceiling is very high. A strong arm and good speed round out his impressive tools. Guerrero is a long way off, but he's someone to keep track of.
