DrB's 2013 Giants Top 50 Prospects #46: Jesus Galindo
Jesus Galindo, OF. DOB: 8/23/1990. 5'11", 175 lbs. B-S, T-R.
Low A: .252/.333/.308, 0 HR, 40 SB, 11 CS, 24 BB, 49 K's in 250 AB.
Jesus Galindo has one outstanding tool, speed. He is a true speed demon and very aggressive on the basepaths. The problem is he doesn't hit very well and has shown virtually no power. The BB's rates are decent and the K rates are not terrible, but in 4 minor league seasons in the organization, he has hit above .260 just once and the .308 SLG% is the 2'nd highest of his career. After 4 seasons and at age 22, it looks more and more like he needs to dramatically change his approach to have a chance.
