Jack Leathersich, RP: The 22 year old Jack Leathersich burst onto the scene this year after a promising debut in the New York Penn League last season.

#11 Juan Lagares:
What They Said â€“ â€˜Since signing at age 16 out of the Dominican, Lagares had moved slowly up the Metsâ€™ ladder. He played at two levels in 2011 and actually hit for a higher average in Double-A, but he struggled to repeat that success at the same level in 2012. He makes consistent contact and doesnâ€™t strike out much, but he also doesnâ€™t walk and doesnâ...

If a player can hit over .300 with good patience and powerâ€¦ why isnâ€™t he playing in the big leagues?Â The answers to that question are varied but in the particular case of Zach Lutz, letâ€™s try to get to the bottom of it.
