2015-05-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Tucker. Do you have any Low Minor, high ceiling prospects your a fan of and are looking to jump on before their stock gains recognition this season?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
I have seen quite a bit of the Low-A level so far (Hagerstown, Delmarva, Greenville, West Virginia, Greensboro), and all of my reports can be found in our database. Mostly all of the prospects on those teams have reports filed already, although I still have a few left that I need to submit this weekend.

I think Jomar Reyes and Jonah Heim of the Orioles have already started to gain some buzz, and the Greensboro Squad had a ton of young talent, albeit they were a little rushed to Low-A. Isael Soto was one specific player I was impressed with, and I think it would be very foolish to write him off because of a terrible start at the Low-A level at age 18. I wouldn't be surprised if I see him with Short-season Batavia later on in the summer, where he likely could/should have started. That being said, I don't mind the aggressiveness of the Marlins. It's good to give prospects a little taste of higher competition.

2014-10-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any Orioles prospects worth following next year, either than Bundy?
(ace from PA)
Jonah Heim is my sleeper. Plus defense, plus arm with pop times around 1.90. Wiry frame and shows tremendous feel behind the plate in terms of gamecalling, blocking and pitch framing. The hit tools is questionable at this stage of his career, but I think he's one of their sleeper guys at this point.

Jomar Reyes is the other to keep an eye on. Legitimate power, big framed player. I saw in ST and the swing was a tad too long for my liking, but he bat speed is also there to alleviate some of that issue. I have a hard time seeing him stick at 3B long-term. (Tucker Blair)
