Updates on Daniel Robertson, Nomar Mazara, Dominic Smith, and more.

Hitter of the Day: Daniel Robertson, SS, Rays (Montgomery, AA): 7-9, 3 R, 3B, BB (DH). Robertson’s future in the field may be up in the air, but whether or not he can hit is not. I’m not sold that he’ll be able to remain at shortstop, as he could outgrow the position, but even if he is forced to slide over to third base, he should provide enough offensive production to be an everyday player at the position. Robertson took advantage of the hitter-friendly California League last season, but he’s continued to drive the ball this year

Eyes on prospects in the Pacific Coast League.

Domingo Santana, RF, Houston Astros (Triple-A Fresno)

At the plate, Santana’s calling card is power, which he has to all fields. In the five games I’ve seen him play, he’s bashed three homers, including two over the right-field fence on elevated fastballs on the outer half of the plate. Unfortunately, the rest of the tools play down due to poor pitch recognition, a willingness to expand the zone, and a questionable approach. The last part was evident in a game I saw last Sunday.

Nik Nowottnick

The game's top prospect appears to finally be healthy, strong, and ready to live up to huge expectations.

For all Byron Buxton endured last season, three little words said with emphasis have become sweet music to the Minnesota Twins.

“I feel strong,” Buxton said.

Updates on Robert Gsellman, Dalton Pompey, Jorge Alfaro, and more.

Hitter of the Day: Bobby Bradley, 1B, Indians (Lake County, A-): 3-4, 3 R, 2 HR, K. The Midwest League was an aggressive assignment for a high-school, third-round pick from last summer, and the results haven’t been shining—though even before Monday’s breakout game there were a few things to feel good about. Bradley has controlled the strike zone well thus far and hasn’t swung and missed excessively. As it warms up in the Midwest, it will be important for Bradley to continue to show off this kind of power, as the bar is high for first base prospects.

Updates on Jose Berrios, Kohl Stewart, D.J. Peterson, and more.

Jose Berrios, RHP, Minnesota Twins (Double-A Chattanooga Lookouts)

Berrios is the most impressive arm I've seen through the season's first month. In Friday's start against Jackson, his fastball was 92-95 and touched 96 with late riding life. He paired it with two present above-average secondaries that flashed plus potential.

Prospect Profile: Ceiling vs. Command

7

Jeff Moore

Cardinals prospect Alex Reyes has the potential to be a star, but unlike Mets' prospect Robert Gsellman, he lacks command, which drops his floor quite a bit.

In the majors, certain pitching match-ups generate a buzz in the ballpark. The same thing happens in the minors, though the excitement is typically reserved to the scouts sitting behind the plate, while most of the rest of the stadium finds their seats, oblivious to the pitching delight on their plate for the evening.

Updates on Billy McKinney, Noah Syndergaard, Blake Snell, and more.

Hitter of the Night: Billy McKinney, OF, Cubs (Myrtle Beach, A+): 1-1, 2 R, HR, 4 BB. If you favor tools, and our team admittedly does as a whole, then McKinney may not be your guy. He doesn’t have the flashy raw tools, but he’s about as polished of a 20-year-old as you’ll find. There’s nothing left for him to prove in A-ball, as he’s handled all three leagues at the level and is showing that his approach is far too advanced for the pitching he’s facing. Double-A will be a test, but he’s well equipped to handle it. Big raw power? No. Blazing speed? No. Premium defender? No. Great pure hitter? Yes. Sign me up.

Prospect Debate: Lewis Brinson

2

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.

On a high school mound in Florida, Chris discovered someone amazing.

Living in St. Petersburg, FL, I don't have to travel too far or look too hard to find special talent on the field. Never did I imagine, though, stumbling upon a player quite like this. He is, simply, the perfect example of #want.
