We might as well start the hype train now.

"But," one general manger who has seen him said, "he's like [Mike] Trout. And Trout wasn't close to this good when he was 16."

"But," an international scouting director who tried and failed to sign Dominguez said, "it's like Mickey Mantle. He's not 6-foot. He's a switch-hitter. He's got crazy power. He's fast as s---. He loves playing."

If he perform well in the low minors he'll probably get the hype of Wander Franco, especially since he's a Yankee. He has the tools and talent to substantiate this as well.

Keith Law doesn’t think he’s in the Wander/Vlad Jr. class but you have other scouts who absolutely do and love him. It’s funny how opinions differ.

All I know is he has a lot to do to prove he is in that class. Wander has a 34/20 BB/K ratio between single A and High-A and Vlad, Jr. batter nearly .400 last season. We will see if the hype is real.

I wonder how long it will take him to enter the fantasy platforms' player universes. I'm sure Yahoo will be the last to add him.

Haven't used Yahoo in a while but I'm guessing Wander was added this preseason. I feel like that makes sense since 2017 he didn't play at all and in 2018 he was in stateside rookie ball. To my knowledge no major international project ever starts in full season ball, so I think adding Dominguez the year he is expected to start full season makes sense (2021 if he's on Wander's trajectory). It's not like he's a big sleeper or anything and if a team has a high pick in a keeper draft they should be able to take him rather than him spontaneously appear on waivers midseason, which is something Yahoo has done often before.

Yahoo did have Marco Luciano, 2018 IFA signee, in its 2019 player system.

Will he be someone to target high in first year player drafts for dynasty this spring? I’m not seeing him on CBS yet. So I’m wondering if he’s even going to be an option. 

Yes, I suspect he will go very high in most drafts.

He should not fall behind pick 5, personally.... personally.....personally I'd have him at 1.  Assuming its a serious dynasty league that you think is around for the long haul.

In the exact same boat as you here man. I type his name in the search bar daily hoping he’s somehow added before my first year player draft in spring of 2020.
