When I was into prospecting as a kid, I saw this guy light it up in a cup of coffee with the Cubs and thought he was an undiscovered gem. Turns out he wasn’t really that good.BB-Ref
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.BB-Ref
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 so great. No surprise he’s struggling in his call-up this year.BB-Ref
MLB’s #10 prospect for 2018. Looks just OK. Hope he can field.
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.BB-Ref
Young, and good numbers at a glance, but that eye needs work.BB-Ref
The only gem acquired in the Manny Machado trade. Looks great so far.
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.
