Notes from the Field: April 21, 2016


BP Prospect Staff

Notes on Magneuris Sierra, Jake Bauers, Yusniel Diaz, Boog Powell, and more.

Magneuris Sierra, CF, St. Louis Cardinals (Low-A Peoria)
Sierra is small-framed with broad shoulders compared to his body. There is plenty of room for strength projection and a bit for growth. He hits from an even stance, with even balance and his hands at his ear. There is a small hitch, leading to some length in the swing but he compensates for that with average bat speed and a simple stride. The plane of the swing is mainly flat but he does feature some uppercut when he tries to pull the ball. Most of his hits came to the opposite side but he did show ability to pull the ball.

A 16-year-old pitching in the Midwest League can turn heads, and when that pitcher can pump a fastball in the 91-96 range in each start, backed up by multiple breaking ball looks and a quality changeup, the heads start spinning. I watched two spring starts from the now 17-year-old southpaw, and I came away knowing that this was the most polished young arm I have ever seen.

Jonathan Schoop, Jake Odorizzi, and Domingo Santana are among the prospects who come off the board in picks 99-140.
