Who is Jake Fox?

Jake Fox

Jake Fox as a Chicago Cub

I know a lot of people are wondering who the new Baltimore Oriole Jake Fox is, well I did some stat searching to help inform everyone.

Fox was a third round draft pick by the Chicago Cubs and had a very good minor league career, he has a .293 career minor league batting average. Fox does strike out a lot in 2008 he struck out 104 times between AA and AAA. He also has shown that he can hit for some power in the minors.

Looking at his fielding stats it looks like he started out as a catcher and moved around to the outfield and first base. At first base he has been solid.

He hit a career high in home runs in 2009 when he hit 11 home runs.

I got all the stats from here http://www.baseball-reference.com/minors/player.cgi?id=fox—003jac

    if all’s well with him, can he add some spark to this lackluster Orioles roster soon? if he doesnt know yet, then we should inform him that the Orioles need to win some more games. im not sure if most people havent noticed that need. =)

    You think he ever could end up being a catcher again? Would Fox have a better chance in gaining a permanent spot on the rotation at some point as a catcher?

  3. He has played some games at the catcher position and has a good fielding percentage. I don’t see him really as a back up catcher for the Orioles as we already have one in Tatum that is really strong defensively. Rotoworld has him listed as a DH. He has played 8 games total at catcher this year.

    Marge-he might add a spark he has some power, at least more than Garret Atkins provided and he can play a lot of different positions. Still if Crowley can do what he did with Pie to Fox we might have something. I wouldn’t hold your breath though.

    The raw power is clearly there, but he’s gotta work on his pitch selection; can only do that with more AB’s, which right now are hard-pressed to find on this team with so many duplicates. I am perfectly fine with moving Scott & Wigginton, calling up Aubrey, and letting Fox and Aubrey share DH/1B/bench duties.
