Stockton Ports Scouting Reports

For those of you who enjoy getting a much closer look at some of the A’s young prospects, we thought we’d share some in-depth scouting evaluations of some current Stockton Ports players courtesy of Chris Kusiolek. Chris is a former correspondent for Oakland Clubhouse who’s spent plenty of time over the years getting up-close looks at some of the A’s top prospects at Stockton and Sacramento (remember that?) as well as in Arizona. You can follow Chris on Twitter at @CaliKusiolek and you can find more of Chris’s Stockton Ports scouting reports on his West Coast Talent blog.
