    1b/OF (probably 1b)

    Recently acquired as the PTBNL in the Elias deal from Seattle. I saw this scouting report linked from Soxprospects: http://baseballcensus.com/2018/01/2...aseball-player-evaluation-video-january-2018/

    He grades out with a 70-75 hit tool which is pretty rare a grade for any system let alone this one where that would lap the field.

    Unfortunately he has two strikes against him: tl/dr, plagiarism and drug abuse (non PED).
    Still - this guy will be a must follow for me.

    He'll be 26 in a few weeks, assigned to Portland.

    Sure, he's got the PED and plagiarism suspensions in his past, but I counter that with this:

    The second suspension was for weed, so whatever. I couldn't find what the first was for.

    A corner OF/1B 70 hit/30 power sure is a weird profile.

    Yeah,
    So maybe a better version of Carlos Quintana?

    Maybe he's too stoned to swing hard. But he's really locked in.

    Also, plagiarism?!? How does a professional baseball player get suspended for plagiarism? Last I checked, there's no part of the job that requires original scholarship.

    EDIT: OK, got it, college.

    Stating the patently obvious, for sure but, DD's calculus has to be based in part on his oppo abilities and Fenway. Any similarities to Daubach?
