That’s what BlueClaws manager Mickey Morandini said about Gauntlett Eldemire in this story from Bob Brookover in today’s Inquirer.
“What has impressed me most is that he is really laying off bad pitches,” Lakewood manager Mickey Morandini said. “He’s making pitchers come to him in that leadoff spot and taking advantage of it. When he gets on base, he makes things happen because he can flat-out fly.”
Through Friday’s games, Eldemire was hitting .240, but thanks to 13 walks had a .397 on-base percentage. He also was second in the South Atlantic League with nine stolen bases in 11 attempts.
Morandini said he never played with anybody in the major leagues who was as fast as Eldemire.
“He may be in Deion Sanders’ category when Deion got going,” Morandini said.
