BP breaks all the rules, bringing you 11 prospect capsules in this Ten Pack, including the fast-tracked Nomar Mazar, the slow-tracked Dorssys Paulino, and three Area Code Games participants

Nomar Mazara, OF, Rangers (Double-A Frisco)
The Rangers recently decided to skip Mazara past High-A, which not only speaks to the 19-year-old’s talent, but also to a strong belief in his makeup. The outfielder oozes ease, especially with his swing. Maraza has the loose hands, lift in his stroke, raw power, and innate bat-to-ball ability to grow into a middle-of-the-order thumper down the line. Beyond the tools and progress Mazara has made with them this season, the promotion presents major clues regarding his makeup. It’s a stamp of approval that Mazara is mentally ready to handle an accelerated assignment to finish out the year, one that will see him face older and more experienced competition. It’s a placement that may lead to initial struggles, but he can handle them and apply what he learns as he continues moving up the chain. —Chris Mellen

Jan Hernandez, 3B, Phillies (Short-season Williamsport)
What caught my eye was the bat speed. The right-handed hitter flashes extremely quick wrists. He has a whip-like stroke and the head of the bat gets through the zone in a hurry. The pull-side contact is loud and hard. There is also some lift that produces carry. The swing is presently geared more toward power than contact, and my early feeling is that the hit tool will consequently be only average. Hernandez will also need to make adjustments to get to that level. The 19-year-old is very aggressive, with barely a plan in place. He hacks at pretty much everything. This is understandable for a player of his experience, but still something that will need refinement. In addition, the approach is oriented toward pulling the ball; this shows in the way Hernandez lunges at offerings middle-to-away and how his head pulls way off the ball at times. The present package is raw and crude, but my vision for the long term sees the potential for a sixth or seventh place hitter with some power. —Chris Mellen
