YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Like Lindor, Paulino is a teenager. In fact, he's a year younger—turning 18 last fall. The top of the Indians’ system is rich with this pair of potential star-level players, but they are so far away that projecting with any confidence is near impossible. Paulino could end up with four average-to-above tools, including a hit tool that some scouts tab as a future 70. He projects for more power than Lindor, too, with our own Jason Parks seeing the potential for 10-15 home runs at his peak. With Kipnis and Cabrera as the current double-play duo, the team needn’t rush these two future studs, but it sure is nice to dream on the potential of an even better duo knocking on the door in the late 2010s.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-04-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)How important is this year for Dorssys Paulino?
(yimmy80 from Birmingham, AL)
I'm not sure it's more important for him than it is any other raw prospect. He's still only 19 and playing in Low-A again, and the tools are still obvious, even if the results haven't been pretty so far. He's got a pretty long leash in my mind. (Mark Anderson)
2013-04-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Bret, I play in a fairly deep competitive keeper league 16 team with a 20 man minor system. I am always looking for the edge in future top prospects as they carry quite the value in mid season trades etc. In 2011 I was able to grab a pre breakout Taveras and Bogaerts, since that year I am always looking for prospects who look to really make that jump from back end or outside the top 100 to future top 30 stud. I was wondering if you had some names to watch in A and Low A, that could make these leaps, particularly position players. Alen Hanson and Polanco are already picked up, Adalberto Mondesi is spoken for as well, trying to stay ahead of my competition.
(Brandon from Toronto)
If you want a few off the radar names, how about Zach Eflin and Dilson Herrera. And if you don't need to dig quite that deep, check out Dorssys Paulino, Blake Snell, Jeimer Candelario and Joe Ross. (Bret Sayre)
2013-04-04 11:00:00 (link to chat)Higher professional upside at the keystone: Dorssys Paulino or Delino DeShields Jr.?
(AG from Long Beach)
DeShields. More impact potential. (Jason Parks)
2013-02-25 11:00:00 (link to chat)Dorssys Paulino, Adalberto Mondesi, and Luis Sardinas. Who rises the most over the next year and who has the highest offensive ceiling?
(kojomoe from oakland)
Mondesi and Sardinas as legit SS prospects; Paulino is most likely a 2B in the end. Paulino has a nice bat; good contact and pop; Mondesi doesn't have a big power ceiling, but can drive the ball and will hit for average; Sardinas is a line-drive type that could hit .300 because of his 7 run. I like Mondesi as the all-around prospect. (Jason Parks on the Top 101 Prospects)
2013-03-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Can Dorssys Paulino stick at short? if not, does he move to 2b or 3b? If its 2b, how does he compare offensively with Eddie Rosario?
(Kai from SLO)
I have no clue here, but Dorssys might be new favorite first name: 42.9% esses. There are no esses in my name. This fills me with sadnessssssssss. (Geoff Young)
2013-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Dorssys Paulino doesn't seem to get mentioned in the same class as fellow SS Russell, Correa, or other young talents Dahl, Buxton, Almora etc. Yet, his numbers last year were on par with those guys. Was it a fluke or should we expect big things from young Dorssys?
(Damon from (KY))
He's probably a right-side of the infield player, which explains why he isn't viewed on the same level as the other prospects. (Jason Parks)
2013-01-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)Does Dorssys Paulino have a future as above average major league ss? Probably not in Cleveland though with lindor ahead of him, am I right?
(Kai from SLO)
I don't see him as a shortstop, even if Lindor wasn't in Cleveland. I think he can be a really good second baseman though. (Mark Anderson)
