is anyone else getting an Andujar vibe here? Strong, physically built doubles machine with good power/contact combo, and unclear plate discipline ability.

Eh I wish...projected to end up at 1B

 I'm not really concerned about projections for a teenager when he has the arm for 3B.

 

 While he’s quite thick for a 19-year-old, Montero’s above-average arm strength gives him a fair chance to stay at third base. If he can, he could be an everyday player: he has above-average raw power projection and some feel to hit

 

The more promise a young player shows. The  more involved they become in his development. It'll be up to him and the organization in terms of following a diet plan. Getting him in better shape. It happens all the time with young players. 

 

He is no more a risk then Andjuar was. Who is exactly the poster was talking about.

Getting blurb luv on RW player news. First High-A HR last night. Just a straight masher, I am onboard regardless of his ultimate position.

Thanks @garlando for sharing this.  Not sure what to make of it other than there are some stars, some so-so's and some busts on that list.  His true outcome is still anywhere on the spectrum, but encouraging that at the very least there is a track record of making it to the majors from the list.

Man that’s a pathetic top 5 lol

 

i do like knizer though.  Unfortunately the cards missed an opportunity to trade Carson Kelly at peak value.

 

Good call on Knizner. That kid is a pure natural hitter. Played 3B at NC State, and has turned into a heck of a C prospect. For a 7th round pick, Cardinals got a win here.
