NotGraphs Video Scouting: Marcus Semien, IF, Chicago AL

White Sox infield prospect Marcus Semien has been one of the minor leagues’ most impressive hitters in July, recording walk and strikeout rates of 23.1% and 9.4%, respectively, and seven home runs in 117 plate appearances while also slashing .356/.504/.700 (.347 BABIP) and stealing five bases on six attempts — all as a 22-year-old in Double-A.

The video embedded here features footage of Semien from a recent Southern League game paired with audio from comedian John Mulaney’s most recent special, New in Town. It should be noted that this particular game is unusual in that it’s one of the few of late in which Semien has failed to homer — as he did, it appears, tonight (Tuesday).

  1. excuse me, i'm new in town and it gets worse says:

    Semien being in the sox system is being undervalued because that farm has failed to develop any hitters of relevance since Aaron Rowand and Joe Crede.
