Going to easily be consensus #1 prospect on lists across the board this time next year if stays healthy. 

This impressive skillset is so rare.

Uhmm, no one gets bigger chubbies for can't miss prospects than fantasy managers in dynasty and keeper leagues.  Please give due respect...

He’s pretty quick around the bases. Love the sound off his bat

It should start something like "I couldn't believe this kid is..."

Looking rather pedestrian in A ball

 

He's young for his level with a 11% K rate (great) and 12% BB rate (great). He is seeing the ball well and it's safe to bet the hits will come as he adjusts.

Young for the level is an understatement. Context is a big part of evaluating prospects.

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.

Wander will be fine. His BB/K ratio is still elite, especially for such a young player, and he still makes contact at an elite rate. Only a matter of time before he goes on a run.

disagree for the reasons other people mentioned. K rate is outstanding. Not only is he 18, but he just turned 18.  Midwest League as a barely legal. Rather impressive. Buy low if possible

He plays a 4 game set 10 minutes from my house in just a few weeks. Can't go wait to watch this phenom in person. Will report back. So happy I jumped on him early in all leagues.

Added a 3rd double. Slash line now at a healthy 300/389/467.

Doubles by an 18 year old in the pitcher-friendly Midwest League in April are likely to translate into HRs down the line.
