AAA
Cecchini 1-3, HR, 2 BB, K (played SS)
Reynolds 0-4, BB, 2 k's (an insane 15 k's in 45 ab's)
Rivera 2-4, 2b, BB, K
Plawecki 1-4
Evans 1-4, 2 k's
L. Taylor 1 inning 1 hit 0 runs 0 walks 2 k's
McGowan 2 innings 1 hit 0 runs 0 walks 6 k's (if not for the awful spring showing you might believe McGowan would be a potential quick call up)

AA
Kaczmarski 1-4, K
Thompson 1-4, K
Nido 0-4, K (off to a terrible start)
Guillorme 1-4, BB, K
Conlon 6 innings 3 hits 0 runs 1 walk 6 k's (Poor spring but off to a very nice start)
Baldonado 2 innings 3 hits 0 runs 0 walks 1 k
C. Taylor 2 innings 3 hits 2 runs 0 walks 1 k (pre-season sleeper for many, including myself not off to a good start to his season)

St. Lucie
Mora 3-6, SB, K (heating up after a brutal start, 5 for his last 11)
Dimino 3-5, BB, K, 2 SB (kid just keeps hitting)
Mazeika 2-4, BB
Urena 2-3, HR, 3 BB (maybe the brightest bright spot of the early season)
Church 4.2 innings 11 hits 4 er 1 walk 2 k's (has not been good. Through 9 A+ starts dating back to last year he hasn't shown any real ability to miss bats 49.1 innings 29 k's)
Ramos 2.2 innings 0 hits 0 runs 2 walks 4 k's
Brantley 1 inning 0 hits 0 runs 1 walk 1 k (too early to celebrate but he's been a nice Indy ball signing so far 9.2 innings 3 hits allowed)

Columbia
Cone 1-3, 2 BB (12 walks = very good, .302 slugging = very bad)
Lindsay 1-3, 2b, 2 BB, K

Mid-season? Sure. Right now Wilmer would likely take over as the primary 3b. Maybe TJ Rivera called up with a look as well. Rosario would almost certainly be the SS when he's called up. 0 career games at 3b so far.

"Scout friend was at the Bing game last night:

Conlon was 84-87. Lots of deception. Smoke and mirrors. Solid CB with plus command. Average-solid CH. Plus pitchability, just the FB is real light.

Guillorme is an excellent glove. Showing a bit more strength than last season at the plate. Has a weird body that he'll need to keep in check. Could be nice utility player.

Corey Taylor has trimmed up a little, weight-wise. Secondary backed up a bit from previous looks. 92-94.

David Thompson - good body, hands are good at 3rd. Arm is a little light. Some trouble covering outer half of plate. Perhaps a poor man's Freese."

Just to put that in perspective. I saw a 14 year old hitting 83 just last night. Consistently. And easily. Thirteen.

Several state side kids are hitting 90+ here in the States. Can't imagine why so many TJS right??

As just trying to put 84-87moh into perspective at such a high level. 84-87 now is considered average HS arm. It's really not something you will see at the low levels yet alone high levels. Most pitchers in the GCL are already low 90's+

In the past month I've seen four 12 year olds hitting 79 and up. About six weeks ago I saw a TEN year old mid to upper 60's (no gun around thankfully) - but kid supposedly been clocked at 68. It's a whole new world in youth baseball than when any of us grew up.

I was listening on the radio to the ColaFlies Monday night game, the game that Blake Taylor started. Taylor pitched a pretty good game against the Rome Braves, although his raw stats (0-2 4.09 ERA) won't show it. The Rome Official Scorer was off his meds and the errors became hits and hits became errors as needed by the Home Team Braves. Taylor registered 7 K's and some of those came when he really needed to get out of a jam.

Tebow had a fun time in LF -- on a routine single to left, Timmy's knee hit his glove hand and knocked the ball away (a clean hit as far as that official scorer was concerned). Eventually that run came around and was charged to Blake. Next at bat, to his credit Tebow beat out an infield roller (SS given an error on the play), stole a base and came around to score. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away.

He's supposedly looked pretty good so far, ignore stats in the minors. The lower, the worse it is.

It's a very poor offensive roster void of talent. Just using the NYFS top 50 prospects list


Lindsay 6
Carpio 18
Ali Sanchez 20 (100% based on scouting reports and not production which has been absolutely awful dating back over 1 full season. He hasn't homered once since 2014...)


are the only legitimate prospects with Paez a "maybe" as a utility player.
Tiberi  
DanMetroMan : 4/19/2017 11:19 am : link
is also a prospect but he's out hurt

DanMetroMan : 4/19/2017 11:21 am : link
Ali Sanchez is getting to the point where the positive reports really lose some value. He's in his 4th pro season coming off a .535 OPS 2016 and is slugging .152 through his first 9 games. I totally get "catchers take time to develop" but he's been absolutely awful. He hasn't homered since 2014 (that dates back 104 games, 16 doubles over that period).

Tebow actually has a solid first 4 games, with 2 HRs and a hit in every game.

Since then, in his last 7 games, Tebow has really struggled having just 3 hits in 24 ABs, 2 BB and 5 Ks.

He's not blocking anyone and has no negative impact in any way. Just pretty clear given his total lack of secondary skills that he's not a "prospect". That's fine. He's enjoying himself and his teammates love it (as do the fans).

I don't doubt the reports that give Lindsay a + grade for speed but at some point it would be nice if he actually stole some bases.. #Mets

DanMetroMan : 4/19/2017 11:43 am : link
Humphreys 4 innings 4 perfect
Tebow 0-2, 2 k's
Carpio 0-1, BB, K, SB, surprisingly already has 6 steals for a guy not known for much speed, presumably a smart baserunner
McGowan at Las Vegas  
BocaGene : 4/19/2017 12:22 pm : link
My wife & I have mini season tickets at Cashman. The seats are great - section 12, row e, seats 1&2 - this is where all the scouts sit. Slightly elevated above catchers left shoulder.

McGowan looked really good last Saturday night. I didn't really know who he was because I couldn't see his number as all the 51 guys were wearing "42". It was one of those "Who is this guy" thing!

I'm going to keep a closer eye on him; especially how he pitches against really good hitters in PSL.

Christian Arroyo (21 years old)of the Sacramento team looks and plays older - perhaps, at least that night, better than our 21 year old guy, Rosario

Rosario bounced a throw to first on a routine two hopper. Smith made a great pick to save an error. Later, Rosario mis timed a jump on a line drive that I thought he should have caught.

Smith does not look 6 foot as listed in scorecard - shorter - maybe it is just his body style. He does play a really good first base defensively.

Speaking of developing secondary skills, one aspect I thought he might be somewhat decent at would be stealing bases. He's not a track star but had decent speed and ran a 4.71 forty. I thought he'd be a guy who could steal 15-20 bases and possible come in late in a game as a pinch runner.

Although so far he hasn't even attempted even though he's gotten on base a fair amount of times.

Urena is technically in his 3rd season in St. Lucie. He's off to a nice start. If he can stay at 3b he's arguably their #2 best 3b prospect behind Tiberi (along with Thompson). If he's a 1b he's far less interesting.
