Not enough numbers to work with, but oh those scouting reports!
Major league teams need pitchers like Harol Gonzalez too.
Top International signee Aaron Bracho had a broken arm and missed all of 2018. What did 2019 bring?
The scouts don’t rank him, but he was an All Star in the Florida State League, so what gives?
After a strong 2018, 2019 wasn’t as kind to Parker Meadows. What happened?
This one’s going to be a bit different.
What do you look for in a power-hitting corner infielder?
He has the power, but how are his strikeouts and walks?
Would you like to meet an ideal leadoff hitter?
When you are this tall, you shouldn’t be playing SS, and yet…
Psst…want a hot tip? Get Noelvi Marte…why are you still reading this? Get him!
Nobody needed a better walk rate than Seth Corry. He finally got it.
Scouts are not as high on Jonathan India as they were. Why?
Trout, Adell, Marsh? Wow!
2017 was great. 2018 was not. 2019 was great. 2020 will be…?
He did what was asked of him after he was drafted. Is that enough?
A year after being drafted in the 35th round, the Dodgers made Kody Hoese a 1st-round pick. What did they see?
He was only 17, and he’s a catcher, so how much could we expect of him anyway? Well…
He’s climbing levels, and the numbers look good, so why don’t the scouts give Zac Lowther more love?Born: April 30, 1996B/T: Left/Left6’2″, 235-lbsDrafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the 2nd round of the 2017 MLB June Amateur Draft out of Xavier University.The NumbersHis raw numbers are listed above courtesy of baseball-reference.com.

You can see those solid green ISOnumbers. Or you can look at spring training where in 13 plate appearances he walked twice, struck out twice, hit a single and two home runs. T […]
Relief prospects are rarely ranked, and just as rarely cared about by fantasy baseball owners. Major league owners, on the other hand, love having these arms in their system. Look at San Diego and their assembly line of sharp relievers who either get Saves and Holds for the Padres, one after the other. And don’t fool yourselves, those relievers are valuable to our fantasy rosters too, but it’s such a crapshoot to figure out who will turn out good ahead of time, it’s easy to just sit back a […]
A couple of years after being drafted by the Phillies, how is Kendall Simmons looking?Born: April 11, 2000B/T: Right/Right6’2″, 180-lbsDrafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 3rd round of the 2018 MLB June Amateur Draft out of Tattnall Square Academy (Macon, GA).The NumbersHis raw numbers are listed above courtesy of baseball-reference.com.

Less than a year after he was the 1st-round pick by the Brewers, 23-year-old Ethan Small proved to be anything but small on the pitcher’s mound, but he did it in only 21 IP. Naturally the scouts want to see more than just a college graduate beating up on low level batters. With that proviso in mind, let’s look at his skills, shall we?Born: February 14, 1997B/T: Left/Left6’3″, 214-lbsDrafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 1st round of the 2019 MLB June Amateur Draft out of Mississippi State […]
The best pitcher in the White Sox system last season, what kind of future can we expect from Jonathan Siever? Bullpen or a starter?Video courtesy of 2080 BaseballBorn: May 12, 1997B/T: Right/Right6’2″, 205-lbsDrafted by the Chicago White Sox in the 5th round of the 2018 MLB June Amateur Draft out of Indiana University Bloomington (Bloomington, IN).The NumbersHis raw numbers are listed above courtesy of baseball-reference.com.

Don’t look at the numbers for Luis Medina. Look under the numbers. This will make sense, trust me.
