A look at Giants Prospect (OF) Francisco Peguero


According to a report by Yahoo's Jeff Passan , the Mets seem interested in Outfielder Francisco Peguero. So I decided to look up some scouting reports and video.

So Here it is:

Scouting Report For Francisco Peguero

Born 6/1/1988 -(23 years old) OF, San Francisco Giants

A speedy outfielder in the Giants' system, Dominican Francisco Peguero is a solid defender with developing on-base skills. After he put on a clinic at low-A Augusta in 2009 (.340/.359/.437) he did the same at high-A San Jose last year, slashing .329/.358/.488 while stealing 40 bases.

A line drive hitter whose build doesn't suggest future power (he's shaped more or less like Eugenio Velez, though he hits exclusively from the right side),

Peguero will have to keep reaching base at a high clip in order to contribute. He's got some distance to close, too: despite the nice batting average, his walk rate is too low, and he is getting caught stealing a frightfully high percentage of the time.

Here is some footage of  Peguero hitting a walk-off Grand Slam:
