1/28 Vogelbach 8th among 1B prospects
MLB.com released it’s top 10 first base prospects, and the Cubs’ Dan Vogelbach was listed at No. 8. Here’s MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo on the infielder:
“When Vogelbach was an amateur, he created a good amount of buzz with his left-handed power bat. Vogelbach has not disappointed as a pro after the Cubs took him in the second round in 2011. He has as much raw pop as anyone in the Minors at this position and can hit the ball out to all fields. Vogelbach has an advanced approach that has allowed him to get on base and hit for average. He was very out of shape in high school but has worked hard to slim down since signing, something he will have to continue to do as his bat propels him up the organization ladder.”
MLB.com will release top outfielders on Monday. Check Cubs.com for that story later in the day.
