  1. From Fan Graphs' Marc Hulet: https://fantasy.fangraphs.com/short-season-prospects-rising-up/ Marco Luciano, SS, Giants: Luciano has a massive ceiling and showed his hitting ability early this season as a 17-year-old in Rookie ball. He hit .302 with 10 home runs in 47 games before earning a promotion to the more advanced Northwest League, which is populated mostly by recently-drafted college players. He appeared in just nine games at that level before hitting the disabled list, which will likely end his season prematurely. Luciano hit above .300 in Rookie ball but he was aided by a .378 BABIP and also had a strikeout rate of 22% so he’s not quite as advanced of a hitter as it seems. But the power is legit. An isolated slugging of almost .300 is almost unheard of from a 17-year-old. And his willingness to take a walk (15 BB%) will ensure he has a strong presence on the base paths.

  10. The walks are definitely a wart he needs to work on, but it's not surprising or discouraging considering the vast majority of relievers with his kind of high strikeout, high velocity profile have this issue.
  11. One of the rare relievers worth putting on your priority list. The 20-year-old was reportedly clocked at 104 mph earlier this season in a stint with Double-A Amarillo. He just got promoted to Triple-A El Paso. Here are his combined numbers between Amarillo and El Paso: 1.37 ERA, 19 games, 19 2/3 IP, 8 H, 9 R, 3 ER, 14 BB, 38 K, 1 HR, .123 BAA

  13. You need to make posts like this, to wake up other slumping studs.
  14. I also think people tend to underestimate how tough of an assignment the Midwest League is for a teenage Latin American player or an American player in his first full year out of high school. Those early games are played in cold weather cities, some at night. Wander Franco probably has never seen snow or been in weather below 40 until this year. He was at the Florida complex until summer last year.
