    Another Catcher, ehh.

    2018 will go down as the year the Yankees rebuilt their Catching prospects in the system.

    LOL. They are tied to 3 catchers I believe. Just those two listed in the top 100.
    Yes, for sure the year of the catcher. Some will be possibly be moved to other positions.

    I remember back in the day when Texas had a herd of talented catchers and people questioned how they would make them all fit. Then the Yankees had Montero, Sanchez, Romine and Higa and everyone questioned how they would all fit.
    Those were the gold ole days for catching depth.

    I intentionally avoided Murphy because I knew I would mention Torrens and I am still salty as hell about Torrens, like a dude pissed about his ex level salty so I don't like to mention him.
    Damn Padres...

    If it's any consolation, Torrens is currently having the worst production of his minor league career at High-A this year, with an 88 wRC+ thus far.

    Plus with Torres and Torreyes already in the fold, he would have caused too much confusion.

    What’s listed below are international signing agreements for all 30 teams. Those signing agreements are all pending the players signing their contracts
    Then how are they signing agreements?

    Where is Kevin Alcantara on this list? Both mlb.com and fangraphs have him as top 10 and signing with the yankees. BA doesn't have him as either.

    EDIT: I see this statement now "Note that there are a few Top 50 international prospects who are still 15 and won’t be eligible to sign until they turn 16 in the next two months."

    Alcantara's birthday is 7/12.

    Bring on Alcantara:

    Kevin Alcantara
    Alcantara has arguably the best physical projection in the class and is one of its youngest members. He's built like Lewis Brinson was at the same age but has better feel for hitting. He also has innate feel for lift. Hitters of this size almost invariably have contact limitations. It hasn't been an issue for Alcantara so far but he also hasn't seen much pro-quality velo. If everything clicks he a good CF with power and he has several lesser, yet valuable outcomes that will depend on how much he fills out.

    Osiel Rodriguez
    Rodriguez has the class' most electric arm and he somehow finds a way to throw strikes even though his arm action is all over the place. His arm slot's variability alters the shape and plane of all of his pitches and really isn't sustainable, long term. He'll need to find mechanical consistency to start. If he does, because he pretty clearly has the best raw stuff in the class, he has its highest ceiling.

    Antonio Gomez
    Gomez is a mature-bodied catcher with a true 80 arm and polished contact skills. He offers little in terms of speed, but is baseball athletic with twitch in his game, including regular 1.85 or lower in-game pop times to second base (65-grade times), as low at 1.70 in showcase settings (80-grade times) and radar reading into the mid-80's in terms of velocity on his throws. His profile depends upon him staying behind the plate since he would be first base-only otherwise, but it looks like he should be fine back there at this point.

    Re: 2018 International Free Agency

    Damn, they all feel loaded recently, but this class in particular seems like it has the potential to be a monster.

    Maybe because it feels like forever since the last seven-figure J2 arm.
