INF Gage Workman
Man, I love Gage Workman. The second article I ever wrote for this site was a prospect profile on him. The guy crushes baseballs...when he actually makes contact. When you strike out at a 40% clip, it's hard to be an effective hitter at any level of baseball.
Workman was a fourth-round pick in 2020 out of Arizona State, where he was teammates with Spencer Torkelson. He was a high-strikeout guy in college as well, so the Tigers knew this going in.
He's also very athletic, stealing 30 bases a year ago. He plays solid defense at shortstop. But it's very clear that he needs to do something at the plate, because he can't keep striking out that much.
He's 23 years old, so there's still time, but this is the year he needs to show something. Getting that K-rate under 30% would be a good start. It would be nice to see him get to Triple-A this year.
