Every now and then we like to check in on the MLB prospects list for future Nationals acquisitions.
Today’s prospect: #1 Krystal Koons, RHP/Catcher, Koons.Com
Haven’t heard a lot about Koons so I went and checked out her film. Let’s go ahead and break it down.
For now, Koons needs a few more seasons under her belt before we are talking Potomac Single-A.
Fangraph’s has this to say about Koons:
Arm: B, Bat: B+, Pitching: C+, Catching: A-
Krystal Koons does it all. She can give you three or four innings on the mound and follow it up with a few behind the dish. We think in the long run most MLB teams will look at her as a Catcher. Our best player comparisons: Buster Posey and Wilson Contreras.
We’ll keep an eye out as she enters Winter Ball for Koons.Com, gotta think someone will take a chance on her maybe in next year’s draft.
