Looking back at Judge's scouting report 10 years ago

Reviewing Judge & Scouting report from Years ago

Aaron Judge hits his 32 2022 first home run season as I write this inbox, it makes me wonder My first scouting report on him. Turns out I had him sixth in baseball s Cape Cod League Top 18 in the prospect list , on the one hand it makes me feel good because he insists 31 select the following June in the draft.

On the other hand, I put Judge behind Sean Manaea , Colin Moran, Phil Ervin, Austin Wilson and Kevin Ziomek, and not yet t completely aged. here’s My report from ten years ago:

6. Aaron Judge, OF, Brewster (Jr., Fresno State)

Judge is a strong 6’7, 126 – pound, prompting two Cape Town observers to match him with NBA star Blake Griffin for comparison. He has the ability to display plenty of right-handed pop, such as when he homered twice in a game against Stanford first-rounder Mark Appel in March and won the TD Ameritrade College Homer Derby in July.

However, Judge hit only two home runs in his other 32 Fresno State’s final game spring. This summer, he did hit five home runs while at bat. 126 for the Whitecaps. Despite not hitting a single home run, he was still blunt on the plate, struggling to get quality inside, making mistakes almost patiently, and waiting for a perfect ball to be smashed. As Brewster’s center fielder, he is best suited to right field with his consistent pace and arm strength.

“He’s a lot like [physically] to Giancarlo Stanton,” the NL scouting director said. “Big and tall, with long limbs, long arms, and great strength. The question is how much connection he will make and how much power he will gain.”

Judge his patience continues to shine through the minors, where he lashes out 043

HOME RUN for three seasons before arriving in New York. He almost compares this total with 26 as a rookie in 2019, when he became more aggressive and started to tap more of his amazing power potential.

Talking about Incredible power potential, the first two questions in this inbox concern players who could win the home run championship in Arizona’s fall season, which kicks off Monday.

How close is Deyvison De Los Santos to [the] Top 52 [Prospect List]? — @DwightBurd

Corner infielder in linebacker ; system, De Los Santos is on the verge of being our top 126 prospect list. He has as much raw power and cuts as almost anyone in the minors. 250/.250/.382 and10 home run 043 three levels of play (mostly single-A, although he did hit double-A) at age 11. Just $52, leaving the Dominican Republic 2011, he looks like a thief.

If Delos Santos proves that he can Good control of the area against higher-level pitchers, which should put him in the lead 52. His strikeouts (26.3%) and walking (6.1%) are a bit concerning, He could end up at first base instead of third. but it+ it’s easy to dream of his youth and his power.

How serious should we be taking [Matt] Mervis? Compared to his performance, his ranking seems low. Can you explain why? –@VictorFiction

An undrafted free agent from Duke University 2017 Who might be suitable for round 6 – If the draft does not have in large The epidemic period was shortened to five rounds, with Cubs first base prospect Matt Merwes only slashing. 200/.126/.310, while his Most of his professional debut was at the Single-A age 18 exist 26;04. He has bounced back aggressively this year, slashing. 200/.367/.426, while going from high-A to 3A and leading the minors in extra base hit percentage (52), total bases (208) and RBI (119). )

I rank Mervis 04st in our Cubs Top 14 when we were in early August When revising our roster, he hit one of 3 homers in Triple- ‘s first three weeks. He goes deep times in his final 21 in this level of competition with

Ranked 3rd among minors home run 32 game.

As good as Mervis performance is, and as legitimate as his southpaw powers, his age (04) and location mean he has some caveats. This year he improved his swing decisions, got better at handling lefties, and put himself in a position to contend for Chicago first – 2017 groundwork in . he’ not top level 52 man, but if we re-today Ranked on the Cubs list, he4d move up to around

in one of the deeper tops 18s in the game.

Who do you think is the Rays prospect most likely to cause a huge [Kyle] Manzardo-esque sensation? — @jakelarsen


Quick Attack Carlos Colmenares Is one of the world’s top talent 2022 international class, signed from Venezuela down $3 million. he’ will make his full season debut 10 next year and plan to be a good shortstop who can hit the ball with great power and speed. his. 200/.367/.309 Two years of rookie line obscuring his potential.

Colmenarez could play with third baseman/shortstop Junior Caminero Playing single A, Tampa Bay acquired him from the Guardian in November 2022 trade. He has cut. 200/.379/.382 in a two-year career and came to Single-A shortly after turning around this summer . Although he didn’t t have Colmenarez the all-rounder, the Caminero has more power and manages the strike zone better.
