- Full name Jason Fox
Organization Prospect Rankings
Fox has one tool that is in short supply in the organization: speed. He put his swift legs to good use at Mudville last year, swiping 53 bases in 70 chances, pretty amazing considering he batted just .249 and struggled to make contact. Because he has virtually no power, Fox must bunt more and keep the ball on the ground to take advantage of his speed. Otherwise, his value as a leadoff hitter decreases. He showed an ability to get bunts down last season by leading his club with 10 sacrifices. In center field, Fox can go get the ball with the best of them. After spending two seasons in Class A, Fox will get the chance to open 2001 in Double-A.
