I wrote about Korey Lee last summer for BaseballHQ.com (link $), but it’s time to bring him into the MiLBAnalysis family.
Jose Rodriguez hit everywhere he went in 2021. Do we believe in this talent?
After a lost 2019 where he bottomed out in skill, and a lost 2020 to a pandemic, how much did Tirso Ornelas look forward to 2021? Glad you asked…
Joshua Mears is known for one thing, and something else — Joshua Mears is known for a couple of things along with — among the things Joshua Mears is known for are power, on-base ability, and uh, those strikeouts. Oh, and a little speed too. He draws walks, did I mention that?
There was one missing piece in the Drew Parrish arsenal. Did he find it?
One of the best hitters in the minor leagues gets ignored by the scouts. What gives?
Meet the batter who drew more walks than anyone else in the minor leagues in 2021.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: the Yankees have another arm…
What a year Steven Kwan had! How much of that do we believe?
Felix Valerio got off to a hot start in 2021, and then cooled off later. Which one is the real Valerio?
Another Pittsburgh Pirate prospect, Matt Fraizer had himself quite a spiffy year, so why aren’t more scouts putting him high on their lists? Let’s find out…
Nick Gonzales was drafted as a hit-first infielder in 2020, and then had a non-season like everyone else. When 2021 began, he put up a modest .333 OBP in May and June. What happened next?
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.
I decided to pick a random player from a random level from a random team. I wound up with the second Pittsburgh pitcher listed on their Double-A roster in 2021. Ergo, meet Osvaldo Bido.
Ready to meet your next great pitching prospect? Yes, I am talking to you, Mariners fans…
If you follow me on Twitter, you know I think Peyton Battenfield, RHP, CLE should get more attention. Imagine how I felt when I realized I hadn’t profiled him here. Sigh, let’s remedy that, shall we?
Some teenagers take the world by storm, but most teenagers are merely figuring out how to do the job they want to succeed at. The skills develop over time, and next thing you know you have a skilled worker. Meet former teenager Juan Yepez.
The Orioles have some nice arms in their system. Where does Drew Rom fit in?
Sometimes you see minor league numbers so good, you do a double-take. So that’s what you do: look a second time, and then you get a more realistic view of the prospect. Meet Brandon Pfaadt (just don’t pronounce the ‘P’ and you’ll say it right.)
24-year-old Carlos Cortes is having a fine Arizona Fall League start. Does he have what it takes to be more than a role player in the majors?
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!
Some prospects pop up and people get all excited (SP, SS), and some prospects pop up and people look at their watches (1B). Here’s why those people can’t tell time.
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…
