When a player is asked to do something, and then he does that thing very, very well, what do you call him? Cooper Bowman.
Scouting reports change as results on the field change. Let’s let Chris Murphy illustrate the process before the scouts have updated.
Process, meet results. Results, meet process. Readers, meet Ken Waldichuk.
Saw a bit of a flurry on Twitter about Ceddanne Rafaela yesterday, so let’s see if his hot start to 2022 is anything to draw our attention.
A top prospect who is missing one thing in his skill set that would take him to the next level
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: the Yankees have another arm…
This past week saw the Rays make some deals to create more room on their 40-man roster, so they could, in part, add 23-year-old infielder Jonathan Aranda to that 40-man. When a team as loaded as the Rays tries to make room for you, you must be pretty good. Meet Mr. Aranda.
The Orioles have some nice arms in their system. Where does Drew Rom fit in?
The Red Sox reached for Nick Yorke in the 1st round of the 2020 Draft. Or did they reach?…
Another “who?” entry in my pitching pantheon, but Wesneski won’t be unknown for very long. I expect him with the Yankees in late 2022. Who, indeed!
When prospect hounds look at new names, always in the back of our minds is the hope that we might find our Holy Grail. Let’s see how close Jacob Lopez comes to the mark.
Drafted in the lost year of 2020, the now 22-year-old Ian Seymour only has 2021 numbers for us to look at. How’s he doing? Hint: He’s a Rays prospect…
And just who is Jayden Murray? Glad you asked…
As I write this, 26-year-old Bobby Dalbec is hitting .300/.382/.833 in 34 PA in spring training. He had 92 PA in 2020, and is about to lose prospect status. What do the Red Sox have in this first baseman who looks to open the season batting ninth?
24-year-old Ryan Mountcastle had a nice first season in the majors in 2020, but juuust avoided losing rookie eligibility. He should be a regular in the outfield for the Orioles in 2021, and maybe play 1B a little as well. What does the team have in this young player?
A Top-100 prospect has made it to majors in a strange 2020 season even though he has very little time at AA, but here is Clarke Schmidt. A top 100 guy for my 100th player profile!
Luis is on the San Diego 60-man roster, so what do the Padres (now Rays) have in him?
As Nate Pearson makes his big-league debut, what can we learn from his minor league performance?
A right elbow strain kept Hunter Harvey from being on the Orioles Opening Day roster, but he should be back soon. What can we expect from him?
Austin Hays is on the Baltimore 60-man roster. What does he bring to the squad?
Connor Seabold puts up good numbers, and nice charts, but there’s one chart in particular that gives scouts pause.
Ready to fall in love with another catcher prospect, who might not stay a catcher and thus break your heart?
Recently I wrote about consensus Top 100 prospect Xavier Edwards of the Rays. Today let’s meet consensus Top 50 prospect Vidal Brujan of the Rays. One of these two is likely to form the double-play combo with Wander Franco for the next decade.
Anthony Kay reached the majors in 2019. Will he stick in the rotation?
2019 proved to be the Case of the Dropping Strikeout Rate for Deivi Garcia.
