Mel Rojas, Jr. Video Recap – 7/4/11

Mel Rojas, Jr. was the Pirates’ 2nd round selection in the 2010 draft, and as I tweeted during the game I saw of him, it is very easy to tell that he is the most talented of all the Power position players. He is a 5-tool guy who obviously has a lot of development to do, but you can definitely see those tools in these videos.

Rojas had an excellent night at the plate going 3 for 4 with a single in his first at-bat, a double in his 2nd at-bat, a strikeout in his 3rd at-bat, and a triple in his 4th at-bat. Check them out:

Rojas was definitely drafted as a project and looks like he could be slow to develop. But as I mentioned before, it is easy to tell he has the talent, it is just a matter of him putting it all together.
