Isaac Galloway - Marlins Best Value Pick?

Sleeper Potential - Isaac Galloway, OF, FLA

Isaac Galloway's current .274/.293/.397 line in the GCL is about as pedestrian as it gets. Decent average, little on base ability and power would normally not warrant a second look. However, Galloway's skill set is much stronger than his numbers would indicate and his recent success on the field leads me to believe that he is just beginning to scratch the surface.

A former Aflac All-American and 36th ranked draft prospect by Baseball America, Galloway was drafted by the Florida Marlins in the 8th round of this years draft after being projected to go no later than the 2nd round because of signability issues. Surprisingly, he signed very quickly for $425,000 and has been available for almost the entire GCL season. This might not seem significant, but Galloway's tools are raw making every extra inning of experience important.

This shows in his monthly splits;

June - .211/.211/.316 (4 games)
July - .245/.272/.378
Aug. - .339/.348/.452

He has yet to show off his 6.5, 60 speed as he has been limited to four stolen bases so far, but his technique should improve with time. His approach also needs refining as a walk every 45 at bats just isn't going to cut it. Fortunately, Galloway has enough raw ability to still achieve some success while he improves on his deficiencies. As it currently stands, Galloway's ceiling is 3rd among outfielders in the Marlins system behind Cameron Maybin and Michael Stanton.
