RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Rockies nabbed Wall, a high school infielder from Florida, with their Competitive Balance Round pick in Juneís draft, inking him quickly and assigning him to their rookie-level club at Grand Junction. While there, Wall lived up to his billing as a player with advanced plate discipline (14.4 BB% over 188 plate appearances) and plus speed (18 stolen bases). As is often the case with most young players with slight builds, Wall figures to add a little more power over time, but itís his ability to hit for contact, draw walks and wreak havoc on the basepaths that will drive his long-term value. Though Wall possesses the ranginess to play shortstop, a labrum tear suffered during his amateur days still seems to be compromising his arm strength, which could permanently relegate him to second base. For now, the Rockies will let his performance against advanced pitching dictate how quickly he progresses through their system. Look for the 19-year-old to spend the 2015 campaign at Low-A Asheville.
