Future Watch: Nick Plummer Baseball Rookie Cards – Nick Plummer was a first round selection in the 2015 MLB Draft as the 23rd overall pick by the St. Louis Cardinals. At just 19 years of age, the talented outfielder is 5′-10″ and 200lbs with some speed. In 180 rookie league at-bats he had 14 extra-base hits, eight steals and 43 runs scored. Not bad for his first foray into minor league baseball.
Drafted out of Brother Hills High School in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, this young prospect has been getting some playing time in the big league spring training camp this year. After that he’ll be sent back down to hone his craft but this experience is invaluable for a young player.
Plummer has a great batting eye and he could add power numbers down the road. If he does, he would become an extremely valuable player for the Cardinals. Because he’s a lefty he could end up at first base as well. Time will tell.
Here’s a look at Plummer at the plate:
According to his MLB.com draft profile:
Plummer has above-average hitting ability and power potential. He has a quick left-handed swing and a mature approach, stroking balls from gap to gap while showing advanced pitch recognition and plate discipline. He’s an average runner with some savvy on the bases.There’s a split camp on whether Plummer can stay in center field, because he lacks the typical speed for the position but overcomes that with good instincts. ETA 2019
Nick Plummer’s first MLB licensed autographed baseball card debuted with the release of 2015 Bowman Draft Baseball, card number BCA-NP.
Plummer isn’t the kind of player who will light up the advanced statistics sheets. What you see is what you get and the raw ability is there and should help him have a very nice major league career.
