The Chris Nash File
Born: Feb. 22, 1987 in Chesterfield, MO
Position: First base
Acquired: 24th-round draft pick in 2006 from Johnson County (MO) CC
Strengths: Works hard and has some line-drive, gap-type power out of a nice batting stroke. OK around first-base bag.
Weaknesses: Must cut down strikeout totals while getting true power out of large frame. Injuries have sidetracked career progress. He's still quite inexperienced with barely 500 at-bats at pro level.
2009 Projection: Probably back to Lake County.
