A toolsy, fast college player with a potent bat from the right side of the plate, Jason Esposito is a nice sleeper prospect clawing his way quickly up the Baltimore system. Esposito slashed a nice .330/.405/.514 in three full seasons of ball at Vanderbilt, with a homer every 30 at-bats and 60-of-79 steals. He's not exactly patient at the plate yet, but he's got a little time to work on that. If plate discipline is something that can be learned (and the jury's still out on that one, officially), Esposito's powerful mix of offensive tools is just what a team like the Orioles should be looking for: a premium project. He looked overmatched in A-ball last year, but we'll chalk that up to adjusting to the pro game and wait to see what he does in 2013. We're cautiously optimistic.
