Prospect season has arrived, and on Tuesday, Keith Law revealed his top 100 prospects for 2013. The Yankees fared well, with Gary Sanchez at 18 overall, Mason Williams at 35, Tyler Austin at 52, and Slade Heathcott at 57. Jose Ramirez also earned a spot in [...]
Alex Rodriguez is having a nice month of May. Though the 36-year-old slugger has just three home runs since May first, he has raised his batting average by 43 points and his OPS by another 63 points over the last month. Coming off the worst season of his career, A-Rod is off to [...]
I have written extensively on the talented group of prospects that are currently on the roster of the Yankees’ low-A club, the Charleston Riverdogs. On a daily basis, the Riverdogs feature legitimate prospects at pretty much every position, including slugging catcher Gary Sanchez, athletic outfielder Mason Williams, power-hitting 3rd baseman Dante Bichette Jr, and fireballing [...]
You rarely see very quick reversals of opinion in the prospect world, especially for very young players. Scouts their second-hand mouthpieces form opinions about young players after many repeat amateur visits. They only get a few glimpses of the play each time (five or six batted balls, a few at bats, maybe a pre-game workout), [...]
Dante Bichette: Defense
Around the time of the draft, Bichette was considered a bat-only prospect with plus raw power but a funky swing. Bichette largely silenced the doubters about his swing by raking in the Gulf Coast League to the tune of a .438 wOBA, but also got better reports on his defense [...]
There has been and likely will continue to be a lot of great discussion surrounding the merits of the recent Michael Pineda-Jesus Montero deal, but I thought I would leave that topic largely alone in this post. Instead, the less-publicized acquisition of teenage RHP Jose Campos got me thinking [...]
I’ve been thinking about something that caught my eye last week for quite some time now. After Baseball America proclaimed Dante Bichette Jr. the top prospect in the 2011 GCL league, which we all knew was coming, they added a surprise in their sub-only scouting report. BA’s Ben Badler tagged Bichette [...]
After a strong professional debut in which he led the Gulf Coast League Yankees to the league championship, Dante Bichette Jr’s season is not over. He will be joining the Staten Island Yankees as they make their playoff push, along with three of his GCL teammates.
Bichette, the Yankees’ first selection in the 2011 draft, [...]
I’m back! My summer in the woods was fantastic, as always. I will now be writing regularly for the blog yet again. While I am away every summer, I always miss short-season baseball. I’m now presented with a nice, robust sample of number for two full Yankee teams to analyze. These statistics can be useful, [...]
UPDATE: 3:13 PM: I said two days ago that I expected the Yankees to approach signability guys with the Powell Doctrine – overwhelming force – in the middle rounds. They didn’t do a ton of that yesterday, but as Levine from Scout.com has been reporting on twitter, the Yankees haven’t touched a single [...]
