Top Prospect Alert - Kevin Mench

By Robert Sherry

Kevin Mench: The 2000 MVP in the Florida State League, has continued to prove the doubters wrong since he came out of college and now ranks as one of the best prospects in the Rangers system.

Drafted out of the University of Delaware in the fourth round of the 1999 draft, Mench's stock slipped as a junior after hitting 33 home runs and slugging 1.091 as a sophomore. He showed that his drop in production was not as trend as he was an all-star in the Appalachian League. He didn't stop hitting in his first full season at Charlotte, batting .334 with 27 home runs, 121 runs batted in, 39 doubles, 9 triples, 118 runs scored, and 19 steals in 491 at-bats.
Even with all of these numbers, the most impressive for a power hitter may have been the 78 walks and just 72 strikeouts during the season. Mench then went on to hit .354 with four homers and 12 runs batted in (99 AB) during the Arizona Fall League, showing that he just didn't beat up on younger pitchers.

At 6-foot and 215 pounds, he surprises you with his speed and is a very good defensive outfielder, with his only weakness in the field being his arm. In the batter's box, he could become a consistent 25+ homer, 100 RBI hitter.
Look for Mench to start 2001 at Double-A. With his age being 23 during the season, he could move fast and should make his major league debut by late-season. He should start in a young, talented Rangers batting order in 2002.
