Grant Desme

.536 Hitting
Potential

Desme is interesting story. Looked really good, dropped out to become a priest, and now he’s back? It’s a shame, I don’t think he’s got it anymore.

Luis Robert

.569 Hitting
Potential

Started playing in Cuba at age 15, and then it became too easy for him. Eye looks great, remains to be seen if the power will come. Still only 20 years old.

Not sure he's disciplined enough to be a force. Worth watching.

Eloy Jiménez

.571 Hitting
Potential

MLB’s #3 2018 prospect. He’s hitting light tower homers in the minors, and his exit velocities are impressive, but so far the numbers indicate that his power is still developing and his eye is suspect. He’s super young, so maybe he still has lots of room for improvement.

Rylan Bannon

.595 Hitting
Potential

The only gem acquired in the Manny Machado trade. Looks great so far.

Finished the season strong.

Slipping a bit with the promotion to AA, but worth keeping an eye on.

Carter Kieboom

.561 Hitting
Potential

Looks not bad, especially as a shortstop. What do the Nats do with him with Trea Turner in the majors? Convert him to 2B, or he’s good trade bait.

Update

Getting better and better.
