    All credit goes out to my team, they are the ones who were able to put these together.

    We are going to be focusing a lot on scouting reports in 2018. We have two guys that have training now with scouting and will be writing the reports.

    Will that include the kids in the June Rule 4 draft?

    We are going to try to get first-hand full scouting reports on as many prospects as possible, including the guys that are not well known.

    So what is a good player comp for Gleyber Torres? Considering skill sets, and I know he isn't a finished product yet either, but he seems like he could be an Alex Bregmann type.

    Yeah, that's a good comp at this point.

    The "problem" I've always had with Torres is that the production isn't blatant/flashy enough to elicit obvious comps/predictions. There's a lot of projection involved for a guy that most scouts feels is "safe".

    At the core of Gleyber's huge talent are veteran OBP skills and fundamentally excellent defense. Bregman is the same type of guy.

    Yeah, that is the vibe I have been getting from what I have been reading about him too. Sometimes I can view things too much through a fantasy baseball lens with young players, so glad to see I am not too far offbase. Anthony Rendon is the other guy who comes to mind, though maybe Torres doesn't have the same projected hit tool Rendon was given as a minor leaguer

    Re: 2018 Yankees Minor League News & Notes

    Every level he goes to he hits, and the advanced metrics (wRC+, etc) are always eye-opening. The hit tool is his best scouted tool. The power is projected, but at such an accepted level that it almost sounds like it's already here when scouts write him up. They're so sure of what he'll be.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he's either of those guys or even more.

    Cool. For the record, I would take him being either of those guys. Though I guess we don't really know what Bregmann could top out at. He could still be a .300, 30HR, 25 steals guy.

    Yeah, for sure, but there's enough intrigue around his skills/development curve to dream about him being more. Here's video of one of his bombs in the AFL last year when he was 19 years old. The power alley in RCF in Scottsdale is roughly 360 feet, so this is probably around a 400 foot shot to the opposite field.

    Also here's one of him hitting a grand slam about 450 feet to dead center:

    Same home run, but from the TV feed:

    Craig: Is Royce Lewis growing on you? Who do you like more between him and Florial?

    Keith Law: That’s not close for me. Even if I’m right that Lewis will move off shortstop, he’s a much better hitter than Florial.



    Don: I think Andujar will be respectable overall if he is given a fair chance, your opinion?

    Keith Law: I do. The rare unheralded Yankees prospect.



    DJ: Do you like Estrada as a good utility guy?

    Keith Law: Thairo? That’s about right.

    My limited knowledge puts me in agreement on all three points.

    Re: 2018 Yankees Minor League News & Notes

    It probably didn't get much notice amidst all the Cole speculation last week, but Cashman, talking to me about the Yankees pitching prospects, saved his highest praise for Albert Abreu, the 22-year old righthander who came from the Astros last winter in the Brian McCann trade.

    Abreu moved up two levels during the 2017 season, finishing the season at Class A Tampa, then impressed scouts during the Arizona Fall League. One scout, in fact, said Abreu had the most impressive start he saw of any pitcher there last fall.

    All of which prompted Cashman to compare Abreu to Luis Severino.

    "He's more advanced than Severino was at that stage," Cashman said. "It doesn't mean he'll be as good, but he's an exciting talent."
