We sat down with Charleston Riverdogs Manager Torre Tyson for a Q&A session to get his thoughts on…
Q&A with Staten Island Manager Josh Paul
PinstripesPlus.com: How Kyle Higashioka only hit .253 this year with just two home runs is one of the great mysteries for me. I love his approach at the plate and I think he's got more power than he's shown. Is he a guy in your opinion that's better than the numbers suggest? Josh Paul: He's 19, he doesn't have his man strength yet. He's got a simple, direct, and compact swing. I think that will play out in the future, especially when he gets bigger and stronger. He's pretty disciplined at the plate and he's got a solid approach. To a point numbers at these levels don't mean anything, it's looking at how they handle situations and if they are improving too. Basically I was looking for him to have good at-bats and he did, and that's all we really care about at that level. You're missing one of Kyle's biggest tools - he's going to be a very good defensive catcher. He's way, way, way ahead of the curve mentally. And he's 19 and he's calling games way, way over his league...
