Philadelphia Phillies prospect Darick Hall is Major League Baseball’s next leadoff hitter

Matt Stairs didn’t get regular appearances for the first time until 1996 at the age of 28. Unlike Darick Hall he wasn’t a late draft pick, Stairs wasn’t even drafted at all.

In his first 38 games that year, he had 102 plate appearances, earning him a .286/.363/.517 slant line. For a left-handed power bat with low pedigree, this sounds suspiciously like Hall’s .263/.300/.516 slash.
