Brad Emaus Scouting Report

Here is a Bio/Scouting Report on  the Mets Rule 5 Pick, Brad Emaus:

The Blue Jays' 11th round selection from the 2007 draft rediscovered his power that seemingly eluded him in his final two seasons at Tulsa.  Playing solely at High-A Dunedin, Emaus batted .302 with 12 HR 71 RBI 12 SB and 87 runs scored and 34 doubles.  He continued his hitting ways in the Hawaiian Winter League, hitting .333 with 2 HR 12 RBI and a sterling 17 BB/7 K ratio in 26 games.  Emaus has a swing that matches his body frame--compact and powerful.  He has an excellent eye at the plate, earning a 60 BB/56 K ratio last season, while effectively driving the ball from foul line to foul line.  He has fringe average speed, but he uses it well on the basepaths.

Defensively, Emaus has substandard range as a middle infielder and will likely need to shift to a corner infield spot in the future.  He has played some third base, but the results have been less than adequate at this point as he racked up 4 errors in 47 chances last season.

Scouting Book Ranked #15 - Brad Emaus - 2B (TOR)
Born 3/28/1986 (24 years old)

A polished infield prospect via Tulane, Brad Emaus projects as a solid major league second baseman in the near future. His .302 average and 12 homers in 463 at-bats at high-A Dunedin helped propel him to the top of the Blue Jays' prospect chart. If his line-drive swing can keep up with more advanced pitching, he could get a look in Toronto at the end of the year. - 12/9/10
