Greedy Pinstripes Top 28 Prospects List: #14

Prospects Month is in full swing and we're already up to our 14th best prospect in the farm system, Eric Jagielo. Honestly I am not as high on Jagielo as most people are, and I know you cannot tell by his ranking, but this in my eyes is a make or break season for him. I know how crazy that sounds in his third professional season but he was exposed for much of the 2014 season and I can see his stock plummeting with a repeat in 2015. 

Here is the write up from Kyle McDaniel on Jagielo:
Eric Jagielo, 3B Video: Jagielo is a pretty straightforward prospect: he has plus power from the left side and the hope is he’ll have a 50 bat and 50 defense at third base, but both are a little fringy right now for scouts. If it all clicks, he’s an above average regular and those two tools hold at fringy or below average, he’s a borderline 45/50 FV first baseman.  Jagielo was the first of three first round picks in 2013 (26th overall) as he was the most advanced at the time, but the two chosen behind him (Judge and Clarkin) were upside plays that have both played well so far. Jagielo had a scare in instructs after being hit in the face by a fastball, breaking a bone, but every indication is he’ll be fine and ready for Spring Training.
