I feel like I have to put a note in enough of these threads, but once again I will say it.... Due to upcoming collective bargaining agreement, there is going to be a real push to limit control on

once in a while, someone special comes along and you can just feel it. Any list placing him outside the top-10 is a criminal underranking, in my opinion. It's not just his plate skills or frame or p

I asked Dipoto if there is any chance of Rodriguez getting fast-tracked all the way to Seattle this coming summer.   "He wants to not only play in the big leagues, he wants to play in the bi

Anyone keeping tabs on this kid? He just got on my radar and seems like someone with a very high ceiling. 


Yup, own him in a dynasty league. Incredibly high ceiling from what I've read.


Mariners are confident enough in him that he didn't have an extended spring training. He had a great game yesterday. 3-5, 2 doubles.

This kid is hitting .478/538/609 with an 11.5% walk rate and 11.5% k rate. Only six games but great googly moogly, he's 18! I own Soto and and he hit.360/427/523 as an 18 year old in 23 games at low A, then .373/486/814 as a 19 year old in 16 games at low A before getting promoted to high A last year. 

I am not a Mariners fan, have no idea how aggressive they would be - what we saw with Soto last year was virtually unprecedented - and JRod is a full year younger - but as some said above, run dont walk and pick this kid up, he's special. The M's could do something crazy and put him on the express train if he keeps hitting, or worst case scenarior you have a top 10 prospect going into 2020.

From rotowire:

Rodriguez was diagnosed with a hairline fracture on his left hand  Friday and will be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Initial X-rays showed that Rodriguez had avoided a fracture after being hit by a pitch last week, but he received a less favorable outlook Friday. The 18-year-old was tearing it up at Low-A West Virginia with a .355/.444/.452 slash line through 36 plate appearances, but is now slated to miss at least a month.
