The Lansing Lugnuts and Beloit Snappers squared off Monday night. Here are my scouting notes on a few Snappers that caught my eye:

SS Daniel Robertson - Robertson, drafted in the supplemental first round last summer, split time between third base and shortstop last season in the Arizona Rookie League and New York-Penn League, but he's trying to stick at short this year. There are still questions about Robertson's defense, mainly his speed or lack thereof. He'll obviously have more fantasy value as a shortstop, but there aren't very many people that see him at the position long term. Maybe if he was in another organization, but with Addison Russell already in the fold it's likely that Robertson will eventually shift to third base on a full-time basis in the future. Robertson went hitless when I saw him play Monday night, though he did make hard contact on some of his outs. Scouts like Robertson's easy swing and think he could have above-average power down the line.
