Cedeño has the tools to be a top leadoff hitter: a blazing speed, good contact, and occasional power. But he is a free swinger and does not posses the discipline necessary to get base on balls. He is a much better hitter from the left side, although he drives the ball better and uses the whole field as a righthanded batter. Beside this, his mental lapses on the bases are notorious. He is visibly confused by "in-between" situations and occasionally causes a slower runner to hold up behind him. Eventually, he can be picked off first base because of a mental mistake. Cedeño must learn to trust his instincts and watch his coaches. Defensively, he is a little below average in the outfield and is adept at the sliding basket catch. His arm strength is considered above-average. In baseball statistics, a base on balls (BB), also called a walk, is used in baseball to track the performance of pitchers and batters. ...
