Prospect Debate: Lewis Brinson

Christopher Crawford, Craig Goldstein and Mauricio Rubio

Will the Rangers toolsy outfielder be limited by his hit tool, or will thing click for Lewis Brinson?

Our next player in the Prospect Debate series is Texas Rangers outfielder Lewis Brinson, the no. 9 rated prospect in the Baseball Prospectus system this winter. Brinson was taken with the 29th pick of the 2012 draft, and while he’s posted decent numbers in his three-plus years in the system, he has frustrated scouts along the way, and has received as many mixed reviews as any outfield prospect I’ve discussed with talent evaluators.

To help understand why he’s such a frustrating prospect, I enlisted the help of Prospect Team members Craig Goldstein and Mauricio Rubio to discuss what makes him one of the most talented members of the deep Rangers system, but also why there’s still an uphill battle for him to become a big-league contributor.

The Call-Up: Eddie Rosario

6

Christopher Crawford and Craig Goldstein

The Twins pull up a hot-and-cold prospect to replace Oswaldo Arcia.

The situation: Minnesota placed Oswaldo Arcia on the 15-day disabled list with a flexor strain in his hip, opening up a spot for Rosario.

Background: Rosario’s stock has fluctuated over the years. He started as a relatively unknown fourth-round pick out of Rafael Lopez Landron High in Puerto Rico. The left-handed-hitting outfielder performed well at the lower levels and showed impressive tools, and quietly established himself as an intriguing outfield prospect. Concerns over his position and a 50-game PED suspension saw his stock sink, but he seemed to reestablish himself after a strong 2013 campaign in which he posted a .810 OPS and 10 homers. Just as quickly, it sunk once more, as he was terrible in 2014, struggling to a .246/.283/.387 line between High- and Double-A. Those struggles, in a strong Minnesota system, saw him looking in at our Top 10 Twins prospects this offseason, though he was listed as one of the three factors on the farm.

The Call-Up: A.J. Cole

3

Al Skorupa and Craig Goldstein

It likely won't last long, but A.J. Cole, the second-best pitching prospect in the Nationals system, is finally arrived.

The Situation: After spending over $200 million to add Max Scherzer to an already strong group of arms, the Washington Nationals were expected to have one of the best rotations in baseball. With May a few days away, things have not gone to plan in D.C.. The Nats are tied for the third worst record in MLB and sit in dead last in the N.L. East. Nationals pitchers have allowed 81 runs on the season. Scherzer hurt his thumb while batting last Thursday and will miss a start. Misfortune for Scherzer has created an opportunity for Cole to make his MLB debut. It might be only one spot start, but it’s also an audition and perhaps a chance for something to energize this team.

League Preview Series

5

Craig Goldstein

The preview of the minor leagues continues with a look at the hitter-friendly Triple-A level.

While Triple-A has recently been skipped over (especially in the PCL) by premium prospects, there’s still plenty of talent to be found. While there aren’t a ton of high-end arms, thanks to the brutal disposition of many of the PCL parks, there are interesting bats on display, at least to open the season. Still, the talent isn’t as abundant as it once was, as teams fear that their pitchers’ confidence will be shot, and their hitters’ swings will be altered thanks to the explosive offensive environments throughout the league.
