In a recent visit to the Inland Empire 66er's facility our own David Saltzer caught up with Angels second base prospect Alex Yarbrough. Here's both our scouting report on Alex and our seven minute video interview with him. Look for similar feature tomorrow on his double-play counterpart Eric Stamets. 

AngelsWin.com Scouting Report on Alex Yarbrough
Position: 2B Bats: Both Throws: Right Height: 5’11” 180 lbs. DOB: 8/3/91 
(Inland Empire - High-A): .286/.330/.459 with 3 HRs and 12 RBI

After hitting .380 as a Mississippi junior, the Angels were pleased to see Yarbrough still around and selected him in the 4th round with their second selection in the 2012 amateur draft after R.J. Alvarez. Yabrough, a switch hitter, has a patient approach from both sides of the plate which gives him the ability to work the count and ultimately turn on pitches with his excellent hand-eye coordination, bat control and quick wrists.

Scouts believe Yarbrough will hit for a high average with some extra base power. An offensive minded-second baseman, Yarbrough won't wow you defensively, but he makes all the plays and should be able to stick at the position. His arm is fringe-average. Yarbrough isn't nearly as fast as Stamets, but has enough wheels for double-digits in the stolen base department.

Love to hear what you think!
