Summary of Law’s views on some of our prospects - there is more detail on the pod of course, and he gives opinions on Martin and Abel too.
Medina - power arm, belongs in the bullpen, no idea about how to set up hitters, will be fine when he just goes hard for an inning or two
Francisco Morales - two high quality pitches but zero command/control so no chance as starter unless that changes
Trading Sixto - he’s not a frontline starter, secondary stuff hasn’t quite developed, can’t stay healthy and conditioning issues, was a good deal for the Phillies -too many ifs to be a #1 guy
Spencer Howard - ultimate ceiling depends on changeup b/c RHB have no chance, but change or something else needed for LHB to get to #1/#2 starter
Alec Bohm - thinks he could stick at 3rd, he’s adequate. Footwork and arm fine, conditioning better already
Mickey Moniak - for a #1 pick overall, a complete disaster. At best an extra outfielder. Draft class not great but plenty of better prospects who went in the top 10. Zero pitch recognition.
Liked this year’s draft overall. Didn’t like Almaraz’s philosophy and he had a lot of autonomy. Optimistic that Barber will be better but not enough info on him as scouting director yet.
