RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Stephen Head.
Twenty three-year olds from established college programs (Mississippi) aren't supposed to take three seasons to escape High-A ball, but that's where Head finds himself. He followed up a disappointing 2006 season with only a slight improvement, hitting just .251/.336/.426 in his third season at High-A Kinston. He has shown a good eye at the plate, while he still needs to show more power as he moves up the chain. Being in the same organization as Beau Mills certainly won't help his cause either. He's got the frame (6-3, 220) for a power spike, but sometimes that's not enough in itself for the development to take place.
At first blush, you'd think Head struggled in his first season in High-A. The former Mississippi star limped to a .696 OPS in 477 at-bats, but put the ball in play (73 strikeouts) and took more than his fair share of walks (54). It's a pretty good bet that Head will remain in the lower minors until some of that bad luck plays itself out.
Selected with the 62nd overall pick in the 2005 draft out of Mississippi, Head promptly tore up Mohoning Valley (1.526 OPS in 10 games) before advancing to Single-A Kinston. His power display continued but he walked just eight times in 47 games while hitting .286. Making just two errors at first for Kinston, the former pitcher/hitter combo looks capable of focusing his efforts off of the mound.
Scouts see him as a 20-30 home run hitter in the majors, if he decides to concentrate solely on hitting. The former Mississippi star became the Bulldogs' career saves leader in his senior season.
