Prospect Plus: Orioles Chance Sisco
Name: Chance Sisco
Team: Delmarva Shorebirds
Organizational Rank: 10th ranked prospect in the Orioles system, according to Baseball America.
Stats vs. Lakewood Blueclaws: 1-5 with a double during a double header on Friday night.
Positives: Sisco has a good arm and soft hands, as should be expected, and his body does indeed look more like a catcher than infielder. At the plate, he should be able to bring his solid contact skills and quick bat to bear in the minors, while power may take a few years to really show up. Smooth lefthanded swing, according to Baseball America. He has bat speed with the ability to make solid contact and while you have to dream, there is future above-average power in the bat.
Negative: Still learning how to catch, only started catching two years ago. He, like most catching prospect, will be a long term prospect.
