2017-02-14 12:00:00 (link to chat)Do you know if an IFA has ever made a top 100 as quickly as Maitan?
(sir nerdlington from colorado)
KG had Michael Ynoa 20th after he signed. All three bref sources had Sano Top 100 immediately, highest was MLB at 23. There's probably others, even limiting it to the J2 16-year-olds. (The Top 101 Prospect Chat with Jeffrey Paternostro)
2013-08-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Michael Ynoa... happening? Not happening?
(achaik from Maine)
Anybody's guess. The stuff flashes and he shows the potential that we all know he has, but it's very inconsistent from outing to outing and has been going back to last year. Still only 21 (he'll be 22 all of next season), and the important thing for me at this point is that the stuff flashes. This is really his first full healthy season in pro ball. Total wild card though. (Jason Cole)
