Age – 25
38th Round of 2007 Draft
Adron Chambers got a whiff of the big league club this past year, which was great, but unfortunately, we all got an even better idea of his limitations and ceiling. Chambers is a left-handed only, no power, lots of speed center-fielder who presents good defense in center and plus defense in the corners. However, being that his bat does not play in the LF or RF, he is limited to center.
His position, CF, is filled by a similar type player in Jon Jay. Neither are any longer blocked by Colby Rasmus, but Jon Jay has the a similar profile to Chambers. Chambers offers more speed, but Jay offers slightly more power and both are lefties. Jay is prone to slumps and is not in any way shape or form “blocking” center-field for any prospect. However, Adron Chambers does not have the offensive potential to be a starting everyday center-fielder.
Chambers has dropped off the list as the Cardinals system has improved and Chambers limitations have become more clear. His current projection is looking more like a 5th outfielder/bench/pinch runner/defensive sub role.
