George Valera was one of the picks last year he is kind of linked to Kristian Robinson and Julio Rodriguez cause of the number of articles they were in together. The other 2 busted out last year but Valera kinda fizzled. Maybe this year he can catch up and break out a year late.

SP Franklin Perez Det

could be a good bounce back guy, looks to be healthy. Some positive early reports out of ST.

I could see, if healthy Jay Goome,bos making a big jump. Get spin rate. And Orelivis Martinez,tor could take a huge leap into the top 25 as he posted a .900 OPS last year

Gonna hitch the Junior Sanquintin train again. 

 

Robert Dominguez(Mid 90's FB teen who could explode on the scene)

Levi Kelly(Nasty Slider, Solid Splitter, extremely athletic)

Robert Paulson (Toolshed switch hitting SS, big time upside)

Luis Matos, Noelvi Marte (Already mentioned in previous posts)

What about our guy Szapucki?  Mets put him on the 40 man.  He could be seeing starts in NY very soon.  High K rate, plus curve, good fastball.  Changeup development will be key to watch.

I agree he's interesting to watch, I think if he stays healthy he makes the majors. I'm hoping he regains some of the stuff that made him a top 100 prospect with top end upside a few years ago, I do own him in a league, but as of now I think he's probably a more back end starter type. Hopefully has a few good years. Also FG suggested maybe his stuff comes back stronger 2nd year after TJ.  Anyway, I'm interested in him, just not feeling super optimistic.

Two for you, one stat guy and one scout guy.

Stat guy:

-Daulton Jefferies, P - Oak - Give me the guy with the ZIPS WHIP projection of 1.16 which ranks tied for the 17th-21st best WHIP in all of MLB with established MLB starters David Price, Mike Soroka and Carlos Carrasco (min 10 GS). Let that sink in, he's projected to be a top 20 WHIP starting MLB pitcher right now, which is a scoring category in almost every league. I get why he doesn't rank on prospect list, he small (6'0'') and he's a tj guy, but these under the radar value prospects quickly become personal favorites when I come across them and he's the latest example. Looks like he will start the year in AAA.

Scout guy:

-Luis Medina, P - NYY - Plus plus fastball, plus change and plus slider with zero control. Here is game log from his last 8 starts of 2019:

7-11: 1bb - 10 k in 6.0 ip (A)
7-17: 0bb - 7 k in 6.0 ip (A)
7-24: 4bb - 7 k in 5.2 ip (A)
7-31: 4bb - 10 k in 5.1 ip (A)
8-6:  2bb - 7 k in 5.0 ip (A)
8-13: 1bb - 10 k in 7.0 ip (A)
8-20: 1bb - 8 k in 5.0 ip (A+)
8-26: 2bb - 4 k in 5.2 ip (A+)

Something changed and supposedly it wasn't mechanical, so mentally he figured out how to throw strikes. If these control gains stick, I'm giving him through April and May to find out and monitoring his spring training closely as he's on the 40-man, then he looks like a top 5 pitching prospect in baseball. Luckily, he's under arguably the best pitching development organization in all of baseball. I'm extremely bullish here, maybe unreasonably so, but if I had one bet for a player to go from 150-200 ranked prospect to top 10, it's him.

Haha. Never thought I'd see Jack Herman on these threads, at least not yet. This will be an interesting year for him, would love to see the Pirates assign him to A+

Seth Corry- he had a 12.62K/9 and a 2.87 FIP in A ball, if he can improve on his 4.51 BB/9, he could definitely be a breakout.

I predict Noelvi Marte top 50 and Orelvis Martinez top 100 by next July.

Jordan Groshans moves into the top 25 sometime next year.

Just picked up both Marte and Martinez in my dynasty.  Huge on these two right now.
