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.

#64 on the Klaw list, which is better than almost anywhere I've noticed...it's especially encouraging because Klaw considers it likely that he moves from 3B across the diamond to 1B. Here is a wrap snippet from the write-up he did:

"There's a good starter kit here for a No. 4 or 5 hitter, a 25- to 30-homer guy with a solid OBP but maybe not as much average as you would want from a No. 2 or 3 hitter, enough for a regular or more even at first."

Klaw ranked Yordan Alvarez in the low 40s last year and then said he wasnt close to making his list this year after mashing and moving up 2 levels.  That was the most bizare thing I've ever seen.

 

Baseball America says Gorman/Montero are close. Gorman has more power upside, but Montero will hit for a better average . Gorman is going #1 in many first year player drafts too. I'd try to buy in on him if you're in a deeper league and have a CI spot or multiple UTILs. Might not cost too much.

Fairly aggressive assignment to AA ball. Couple knocks (2B) last night, really gonna be interesting to see how he does this first few months.

His stats for the pitcher friendly Midwest league as a teenager are very underrated

Bump - any more thoughts on this guy?

It was an aggressive assignment by the Cards to put him in AA.  The K's are somewhat concerning, but we have to remember that he's a 20 year old in AA.  Seems like after a brutal April, he's settling in over the past couple weeks.  I wouldn't panic, but we might not be looking at a meteoric rise either.

He was injured for awhile too...just maybe finally settling in. It could be a plus hit tool/power combo with him and AA will be a big time test.
