    Guys, they are at it again. Posted a 19-spot in the 2nd inning today
    22 runs through 4, but only on 15 hits because of 10 BBs and 2 HBPs in those 4 IP

    You forgot the obligatory Escotto *BOMB*. Up to 7 now. #PROMOAT.


    Bonus item: Glenn Otto threw 2 scoreless innings in his second GCL rehab appearance. Struck out one, no hits.


    Bonus item #2: Mauro Bonifacio (DSL) and Anthony Garcia (Pulaski) are both 6'7, and Bonifacio plays CF! I'm having unwarranted visions of a Judge/Bonifacio/Garcia OF.

    Kevin Alcantara is listed at 6'6" and FanGraphs has him as the Yankees #6 prospect. Some of their blurb:

    We ranked Alcantara fourth among the 2018 international amateurs because he has some of the group's more advanced in-game feel to hit, he has a really good chance of not only staying in center field but might also be great there, and he has the best physical projection in the entire class. The more recently a source has seen Alcantara, the nuttier the reports get. Now that he has access to pro-quality athletic facilities, he's already put on some good weight and has been hitting for more power during batting practice in the Dominican Republic. At one point he hit several BP homers, not just over the outfield fence, but over the fence that encloses the complex itself. Built like Lewis Brinson and Cody Bellinger were at the same age, Alcantara has better feel for contact than either of them did as teens. Hitters this size often struggle with strikeouts due to lever length and while Alcantara hasn't faced much pro quality velocity to stress test this aspect of his offense, there are no early indications that strikeouts are going to be an issue for him. It may take physical maturation and little else to enable a breakout, and the comps industry personnel are placing on Alcantara (Devon White, Dexter Fowler, and Alex Rios to name a few) are very strong.
