Milwaukee Brewers Top 10 Prospects Post Trade Deadline
9 of 10
#9 Gilbert Lara (ROK Helena Brewers)
From the MLBPipeline:
"Lara stands out most for his offensive potential. He combines physical strength and bat speed to generate plus raw power from the right side of the plate, though his swing does involve considerable effort, and he tends to get too stiff when he tries to juice the ball. The Brewers want him to isolate and get better use of his hands, which they believe will be the key to unlocking his natural hitting ability and power. With enough contact, he should clear plenty of fences in his pro career. Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 55 | Run: 50 | Arm: 55 | Field: 50 | Overall: 50"
