Wednesday Outlook Notes: Get to the Org in Scottsdale

Here you can read previous contributions to our potential comments.

I complete the lists of potential clients using the same complex grouping as usual, adding notes about my personal appearance, source data, and opinions from professional scouts. In first place is a team based in Scottsdale that focuses on the Giants because of the status of their candidates, making them the team most likely motivated to leave the current to the end of the deal. Players whose futures value has been changed have an “Up” or “Down” arrow in the “Trend” column of the game board.

Arizona Diamondbacks

I didn’t make many changes to the Arizona list. Small school lawyer Brandon Pfaadt jumps from former classmates Blake Walston and Ryne Nelson to move into the top 100. He ticks harder than last year and works three better-than-average (or better) squares in Double-A Amarillo now that his change has taken a step further. Although he is below average 2B / 3B, the recent debutant Buddy Kennedy has been hit hard enough to be considered a true striker 1-WAR, à la Mike Brosseau. Jose Curpa and Christian Montes De Oca have been added to the list of organizations; you will find their reports on the board. I also considered adding hard-throwing young people to Rael Santos and Diomede Sierra (each 20-21 years old and sitting at 94 miles an hour), but they have been too walking-minded to do so.

Kristian Robinson played in an extended spring training session, but does not appear to be playing a Complex League / tied ball in the regular season. It is not technically extended in the definition provided in his employment contract. This has been a pain point for sub-league players in general, as they often do not participate in spring training, instruction or other similar development activities and are not paid for it, but Robinson’s situation is the loophole that allowed him to get the 2022 replay. .

Of the 45 FV throwers in this system who have had different years, I relocated only Tommy Henry (now 40 FV), who sits 91-92 miles an hour and looks more like a fifth starter than anyone who has to take the ball. in a play-off series in which Slade Cecconi and Bryce Jarvis feel closer, even though they haven’t acted in their personal highs (Jarvis was just before the draft, Cecconi just after).

Colorado Rockies

Ezequiel Tovar is in the top 100 (woohoo!). There is still a somewhat frightening chase here, which poses risks and volatility, although Tovar is close to the big leagues, but he is a good enough defender to give himself room for error in this regard. He and Brayan Rocchio have similar skills, with Tovar surpassing Rocchio at the same level and so the two are now on the universal list.

Conversely, Adael Amador makes record-breaking records at the beginning of his career in both above-average discipline and intra-zone contacts, but he is unable to stay short and may reach a second base. He jumps to 45 FV level. His ability to be the second main player in every inning may not be realized due to his lack of size, but he is a skilled middle player and at least a likely role player, and I have spoken to scouts. who have a daily grade.

Teenager right-wing Victor Juarez drives just 91 miles an hour, but he continues in the Cal League nonetheless. He’s moving to 40+ levels due to his athleticism and commanding more than the current stuff, which has actually slipped a bit since the beginning of spring. Sam Weatherly (shoulder) recently received rehabilitation treatment in Arizona, sitting at a speed of 92 to 94 miles per hour, close enough to his pre-injury speed to keep him from moving. Speaking of weaning friends, second-round player Jaden Hill (from TJ) in 2021 will shed his bull’s head and may play in the coming weeks.

Brenton Doyle and Ryan Vilade are moving down this organization. Doyle still has tremendous strength, athleticism and speed, but his swing is currently in a difficult position and he watches like a bench winger. During the Triple-As career, Vilade has only hit nine home teams in about 170 games, half of which have been played in Albuquerque and many in Reno and Vegas. He has other contact / basic skills, but depending on where Vilade’s defense spectrum falls, he needs to have more strength.

I have recent notes on The Board about Brian Serven, Jake Bird, Luis Mendez and PJ Poulin.

The giants of San Francisco

The Giants have begun to improve their pitchers at a speed that rivals that of other top baseball organizations. Based on my observations of the spring training at Scottsdale Stadium and their complex, they use Kinatrax to make real-time mechanical assessments and (I believe) also find fixable inefficiencies that they can fix through a player developer. This may be why the Giants seem to make sense to go through the top-level sub-leagues who have been removed or blocked from other lists and give them a few weeks to see if significant changes can be made quickly. appears in the square. Often nothing is realized, but even one Anthony DeSclafani justifies holding a 40-man seat for this type of activity.

This method of development is also widely applied in the classes of these drafts. As a result, we are seeing rapid improvements, although not all of them have survived. Mat Olsen, an athletic junior college judge, has lived back to the 90’s after a tougher throw-up in the spring. Mason Black, although the overall quality of his affairs deserved to be on the list, was up to 100 miles per hour in the spring, but is now more in the 93-95 range. Landen Roupp, Jose Cruz, Ryan Walker and Gerelmi Maldonado are all new names here and the reports and scores are on the board. Former Giancarlo Stanton’s commercial Jorge Guzman recovered at the complex last week at a speed of 98 to 100 miles per hour; he too has been added. Eric Silva has moved from a “sporty sleeper” system to one of the more likely starters to sit 92-94 miles per hour and drive five pitches.

Hunter Bishop is another seasonal swing changer and is now using at least his fourth different swing since he first arrived in Arizona. After a change that appears to have taken place during Thursday’s break in May, he is performing better (after hitting 0.169 earlier), reaching 0.244 / 0.349 / 0.415, but Bishop still achieving 31%. clip at the age of 24 on the A-ball. He still has the impact, but except during the pre-conference game in his druff year, he hasn’t been hit potentially consistently. The Giants played legitimate gambling, but it didn’t work out. The fact that he has been able to make so many changes may mean that Bishop will finally be able to make adjustments that will help him find a viable contact, and for that reason he will remain on the list, but at the moment he will have to slip.

Other additions here are the power / speed field outlook Grant McCray, who has some risk of being hit himself, David Villar and Onil Perez, who all have recent reports on the board.
