Hudson Potts: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
A surprise first-round pick in last year's draft, Potts signed for less than half the slot value at No. 24, allowing the Padres to load up on more prep talent later in the draft. He changed his name shortly after getting selected (he was called Hudson Sanchez) and will soon see a position change from shortstop to third base. Fortunately, the bat projects to be good enough to handle a corner. He is already 6-foot-3, 205 pounds, but has not yet tapped into what could be plus raw power down the road. Potts posted an impressive 13:9 K:BB in 16 games in the Northwest League as a 17-year-old, but he was a little unlucky on balls in play. He will be one of the youngest players in the Midwest League this year, and if he can be a league-average hitter, that will be an encouraging indicator.
