DrB's 2016 Giants Top 50 Prospects: #33 Steven Duggar

Steven Duggar, OF.  B-L, T-R.  DOB:  11/4/1993.  6'2", 190 lbs.

Short Season:  .293/.390/.367, 12 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 6 SB, 13.1 BB%, 19.5 K%, 267 PA.

Duggar is another highly touted HS player with a reputation of having 5 tools who, despite playing well in college, saw his stock slip due to a failure to live up to lofty expectations.  Duggar's best tool is resportely his speed which also helps him track balls down in the OF.  He has an arm, clocked at 90 MPH from the OF while in HS.  He has raw power which he shows off in batting practice, but it has not shown up in games.  He ran very high walk and K rates in college, probably due to being too conservative at the plate, so he is a 3 true outcomes guy minus the power, but he has somewhat made up for that by hitting for average.

His scouting and statistical profile are almost identical to Jarrett Parker, which I'll say is his closest comp.  He could get places in either Augusta or San Jose for 2016 depending on organizational needs.  Hard to say what his ceiling is.  He has the tools to be a star OF, but will he ever beat the expectations game?  ETA is probably 2019.
