So it all comes down to this. The season has been over for about month now and it's time to reveal our top 15 prospects. I'd like to thank everyone who has read our sparadic posts throughout the summer and all of the scouts who have helped me and in... Continue reading

Usually I put some little intro before my notes, but I can't really think of anything interesting to write so let's just get right into talking about some Indians prospects: Nellie Rodriguez, 1B One scout I talked to called Rodriguez the best position prospect he's seen this summer in the...

I was a little upset when the Marlins sent first rounder Colin Moran straight to Low-A Greensboro instead of giving him a short season assignment, but there is still some interesting talent here worth keeping an eye on. Let's take a look: Javier Lopez, SS Lopez was my favorite player... Continue reading

With the 26th overall pick in the 2013 amateur draft the New York Yankees selected third baseman Eric Jagielo out of Notre Dame. Jagielo signed almost right away, but tweaked his hamstring while working out and was held back in Tampa for a couple of weeks before reporting to Staten... Continue reading

I was sitting on a game between Staten Island and Hudson Valley and talking to a scout about different baseball things when the term makeup came up. Makeup is a widely debated topic amongst scouts (i.e. how it's defined, how to indentify it, etc.). I, personally, have always thought of... Continue reading

Like almost every other NYPL team, the Tigers have one legitimate prospect and a few other guys that are interesting. However, the one legit guy is a pitcher so I'm glad I caught him (yes I'm talking about Crawford, but I've heard good things about 2013 second rounder Kevin Ziomek... Continue reading

The Staten Island Yankees are the team that I've seen the most, so I have a lot of notes on them. I posted some notes on four of their pitchers a few weeks back, but here is a more complete team report. I'll have the Connecticut Tigers up either later... Continue reading

Hudson Valley has a couple of interesting guys at least worth keeping an eye on, but most of them are very raw. The reason I like to write up the interesting guys as well as the legitimate prospects is because in the Penn League, most teams only have one legit... Continue reading

The Aberdeen Ironbirds don't really have a prospect-laden roster. The team features a lot of older players who probably won't wind up doing too much. However, there is some talent here, so let's take a look at a few guys. Hector Veloz, 3B When I first saw Veloz take batting... Continue reading

Rookie Davis, Yankees, RHSP Davis sports a simple delivery that is easy to repeat without much issue. His best pitch is his fastball which will sit in the 91-93 range, while touching 95, with some armside run. When he's at his best he's able to locate this pitch on both... Continue reading

I usually hold off my judgements on players until after I see them a few times, but I'm really excited about the season starting and to provide content that I've decided to put together a little first impressions report on the Yankees and Cyclones. These are just some scouting notes... Continue reading
