Tigers in EST: Chris Sedon

Chris Sedon joined the Tigers organization last summer after being selected in the 10th round of the 2009 MLB draft.  He was considered an offensive-minded second baseman after putting up huge numbers as a junior at the University of Pittsburgh.

I got a chance to see Sedon play last May when the Panthers came to Storrs, Conn. for a series against the UConn Huskies.  Sedon showed impressive bat speed and power against the Huskies, while being watched closely by the scouts in attendance at J.O. Christian Field.

After signing his professional contract, Sedon was assigned to the Oneonta Tigers.  He struggled mightily in his professional debut, posting a .137/.221/.165 slash line in 139 at bats with the O-Tigers.  These results must have been surprising to the Tigers coaching staff, considering Sedon had been terrorizing college pitching all spring.

Sedon will likely be assigned to the Connecticut Tigers in June for a second tour of duty around the New York-Penn League.  While he posted big power numbers at Pittsburgh, Tigers fans should expect Sedon to be more of a doubles hitter at Connecticut, as he profiles as more of a line-drive hitter at the professional level.

    I would’ve liked to see Sedon take more walks in college (though, I only have data for his 2009 as his 2008 he might not have had enough PA’s for me to be tracking him).

      Mike,

      Sedon only spent one year at Pitt. He was a transfer from Lackawanna College. Unfortunately, Lackawanna College’s baseball web site does not keep very complete statistics as it doesn’t show OBP or walks.

  2. Mike Rogers Says:

    Ahhh, that would explain it, and that gives him a bit of a pass in my book for the lack of BB’s at Pitt. Thanks, for the info.
