Who is Jake Fox?
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.
