Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 45 | Run: 50 | Arm: 55 | Field: 50 | Overall: 40

The Giants took two Louisville position players in the first four rounds of the 2019 Draft, first baseman Logan Wyatt in the second and Fitzgerald in the fourth. Signed for $495,000, the latter got off to a slow start last spring but boosted his stock with a late-season surge that helped the Cardinals reach the College World Series for the second time in his three seasons. His father Mike was a two-time first-round choice (1983 January and 1984 June secondary Drafts) who caught briefly in the big leagues with the 1988 Cardinals.

Fitzgerald doesn't have a plus tool but is a steady performer who could be average across the board. He improved offensively throughout his college career and makes repeated contact to all fields from the right side of the plate. He has a strong 6-foot-3 frame and hit the ball harder than ever as a junior, showing enough pop to provide 15 homers per season.

Fitzgerald makes the most of his average to solid speed on the bases. He also has good instincts at shortstop, where he compensates for ordinary range with reliable hands and a strong, accurate arm. If he can't remain at short, he might not provide enough offense to profile as an everyday player at second or third base, but he would be useful as a utility man.
