Lou Santangelo
Name: Louis Santangelo
Born: Mar 16, 1983 in Staten Island, N.Y. USA
High School: Christian Brothers Academy, Lincroft, N.J.
College: Clemson
Ht.: 6'1" / Wt.: 200 lbs
Bats: R / Throws: R
Drafted in the 4th round (124th overall) by the Houston Astros in 2004 (signed for $260,000)
In two seasons at Seton Hall, Santangelo hit .251 with three home runs in 291 at-bats. He still swings and misses with regularity, but he's shown marked improvement at the plate and was tied for the ACC lead in home runs with 15. Santangelo has a live, athletic body that helps make his glove a plus tool behind the plate, and his accurate arm grades as at least a 60 on the 20-80 scouting scale. Scouts also like his toughness and makeup. The question is the bat. He has good bat speed, strength and raw power, as well as a hitch in his swing that keeps him from making consistent contact.
