The scouting report on Corey Patterson from the Brewers had him projected as a .295, 12 HR, 40 SB guy before the 1998 draft.  I wonder if he gets picked #3 overall if we had him projected that way or gets developed as a power hitter type.

That would fit this guy.  Most of the scouting reports on there have forms that they fill out and this guys was just like a paragraph for each player that he saw on notebook paper.  If you read his 1985 scouting report on Sandberg, you would have never known that he won the MVP award in 1984. I think by 1990 he called him a top 10 player.

Daytona trails St. Lucie 5-3 in the fifth.

Jorge Soler is 3-3 with a homer and a double.

Javier Baez has 3 Ks.

Nice to see Soler getting hot.  For the moment he's up over .900 OPS.  Fun fun fun.

Anyone else think it's time to demote Javier Baez?  I think he's proven that he's not ready for Daytona.  It might be hurting him to face pitching he's not ready for at this point.  It may also be hurting his value to let him struggle like this.

I'd leave Baez where he is for now.  See how he adjusts over the next month.

I certainly don't.

He needs to learn things.  There is not a real need to dominate the competition.

Demote him to a level he already dominated last year .333/.383/.596/.979, and what is he going to learn?

Additionally there are four other starters on the Daytona team who have a lower OPS  and lower BA than Baez does... should they also each be demoted?  His OPS is higher than the team OPS at Daytona, and better than the OPS of 9 teams in the league, and close to 50 points better than the league average.

Certainly he has not been doing as well as had been hoped, but demotion would make no sense.

Now, for the good news from Daytona -- Stephen Bruno, who seemed to put up flukishly good numbers last year at Boise, is picking up right where he left off last year.  He has a line of .362/.436/.478/.914.  That puts him 7th in the league in BA, 8th in OBP, 21st in slugging (Baez is 24th) and tied for 9th in OPS.  Pretty good for a 2B who also plays SS, 3B, all OF positions and has seriously and favorably worked out behind the plate.

Pretty solid outing for Underwood in EST today. Almora seems to have disappeared though.

Josh Vitters stole a base?  Did the catcher suffer a stroke as the pitch was delivered?

Either that or the catcher's name is Dioner Castillo.
