2017-02-06 23:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on a couple of young power bats: Josh Ockimey and Dermis Garcia?
(Dave Bertis from Montpelier )
Yeah, Ockimey had a nice burst there last season. Mixed reviews on the hit tool in our conversations, it's a narrow road for him already, though there's loft in the swing and he realized some of his plus power in-game last year, which is an encouraging starting point. Garcia has a ton of power, but the swing still has a long way to go if he's ever gonna find it. This is not surprising, as he's newly 19. I'd gamble on Dermis' potentially elite raw and at-least-possible non-first-base profile over Ockimey I think, even allowing for the timeline differential. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-08-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jeff, I know he's a long way away and will outgrow SS, but do you have any thoughts on Dermis Garcia?
(AT from Charleston )
I didn't catch Pulaski this year, so I don't have a ton to add past what Adam wrote in a chat a couple weeks ago:

"I'll have a more complete Appy League summation on a per-team basis (hopefully next week...), but here's a basic capsule on Dermis Garcia (note this was written earlier in the Appy League season):

Garcia signed for 3 million in 2014, his calling cards a classic corner profile toolset with size and easy right-handed raw power. He's put the juice in his bat on display the first two weeks of the Appy Legaue season, already belting five homeruns. A large, physical 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, his swing has natural plus torque and lift, and the ball really jumps off the barrel when he squares it up. The swing-path and hand-speed on his frame make it easy to see where future homerun power could stem from, but like many young power hitters in the Appy League, Garcia's approach and ability to limit strikeouts are in the nascent stages. Despite his power surge to begin his 2016 season, he's also struck out in nearly half of his plate appearances. He has a strong arm and his hands work enough at the hot corner, but an increasingly-thick lower half leads some to think he may eventually move to a less demanding corner spot." (Jeffrey Paternostro)
2016-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)You gotten a chance to see that stacked Pulaski roster? Who's been the most impressive thus far (either in your own looks or from what you've heard)? What type of chance does dermis garcia have of getting the hit tool to average? Swing plane looks pretty extreme from the video I've seen.
(nkunke1 from BR)
Pulaski is absolutely stacked, for sure. Appy League is a wild one, but certainly is an entertaining league, and a good challenge from an evaluation perspective. The Yankees' Advanced Rookie affiliate, the P-Yanks have a deep group of teenage hitters with upside. That starts with Blake Rutherford, the 18th overall pick in this year's draft who was recently promoted to Pulaski from the GCL. New York's aggressive international spending in recent periods makes Pulaski the landing spot for many of their high-dollar J2 bonus players that are around the age of 18-19.

On top of Dermis Garcia (who you mentioned), there's also infielder Wilkerman Garcia, outfielder Leonardo Molina. There are top-priority top of prospects like Rutherford and these three, but there's some prospect depth as well. LHP Jeff Degano and OF Isiah Gillam both have shown some things in the past as well when I saw them at the amateur level.

I'll have a more complete Appy League summation on a per-team basis (hopefully next week...), but here's a basic capsule on Dermis Garcia (note this was written earlier in the Appy League season):

2016-07-13 15:00:00 (link to chat)Who are the short season guys you're most interested in this year? Dermis Garcia for example is off to a hot power start and is one guy I'm liking.
(Hub from Cali)
Three true outcomes extraordinaire! I won't get to physically see him this year, but I'm real interested to observe how Will Benson fairs over the rest of the year. Less his stats - who cares in the AZL - than whether he starts taking better at bats and starts making more contact. (Brendan Gawlowski)
2015-11-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)In terms of power potential for international signees from past few years, are there other big names to keep an eye on besides Gilbert Laura and Jomar Reyes? (emphasis on potential, understood these guys are really far away)
(Peter from NYC)
Mmm hmm. Dermis Garcia, Nelson Gomez, Vlad Guerrero, Jr. All guys who have a chance to possess big time power as they get stronger. (Christopher Crawford)
