Class-A Outfielder Of The Week: Indians’ Connor Marabell

Cleveland Indians’ prospect Connor Marabell may only be in his second season of pro ball but he is showing that he has an advanced approach at the plate that can help move him forward through the minors and into a prosperous big league career.

The twenty-two year old outfielder has had a solid season with the Class-a Lake County Captains of the Midwest League. In his last ten games he has hit .306 and in his most recent game on July 25, 2016 he went 3 for 5 with two runs scored and stole a base.

Marabell’s ability to play “small ball” is something that attracts big league scouts and the Indians will definitely notice this type of performance. He may have just six homers on the season but a .308 batting average with 104 hits in ninety-five games which includes 31 doubles and four triples and fifty runs batted in is something that makes a good hitter and elite hitter.

His defensive skills in the outfield are also superb and his speed and base running ability has led him to steal eleven bases this season.

Marabell was drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the 25th Round of the 2015 MLB Draft while playing at Jacksonville University.

After signing with the Indians’ Organization he was assigned to the Manoning Valley Scrappers of the New York-Penn League. In his first season of pro ball he hit just .222 with 18 RBIs.
