Pirates trade Andrew McCutchen to Giants for Kyle Crick, Bryan Reynolds

A quick take on the two new Pirates

On Monday afternoon the Pittsburgh Pirates traded outfielder Andrew McCutchen to the San Francisco Giants for right-handed pitcher Kyle Crick and outfield prospect Bryan Reynolds. Here’s a quick take.

Kyle Crick, RHP: The Giants drafted Crick in the compensation round of the 2011 draft from high school in Sherman, Texas. He was very effective in A-ball but had trouble with command on reaching Double-A in 2014, spending three seasons at that level as a starter with only marginal success.

In 2017 he converted to the bullpen and was much better, posting a 2.76 ERA in 29 innings in Triple-A (39/13 K/BB), then a 3.06 ERA in 32 major league innings (28/17 K/BB, just 22 hits). He exceeded rookie limits in ‘17 so is no longer technically a prospect.

Crick is listed at 6-4, 220, born November 30, 1992. He’s always had impressive stuff, with a fastball up to 96-98 MPH, a sweeping slider, and an occasional change-up. Control problems hampered him as a starter but he took well to relief work in ‘17, and while his walk rate remains elevated, he can certainly overpower hitters a time or two through the line-up. He has closer potential.

Bryan Reynolds, OF: Reynolds was a prominent outfielder at Vanderbilt University, earning a spot in the second round of the 2016 draft. He spent 2017 with San Jose in the High-A California League, hitting .312/.364/.462 with 10 homers, 37 walks, and 106 strikeouts in 491 at-bats.

Reynolds is listed at 6-3, 2015, a switch-hitter born January 27th, 1995. He has solid tools across the board, with at least average raw power and above-average running speed, though he hasn’t been a huge stolen base threat yet. His speed works well in the outfield and he can handle all three positions despite an average arm.

The Giants tend to be conservative about prospect promotion and the Pirates may be willing to push him up the ladder more quickly. There’s some question about how Reynolds’ power will manifest at the highest levels and it remains to be seen if he’ll be a solid regular or just a very good role player. If he gets off to a good start in ‘18 he could arrive in the majors quickly.

Along with Crick and Reynolds, the Pirates will also receive $500,000 worth of international bonus money slots.




Prospect Retrospective: the career of Justin Morneau

2018-01-15T15:58:32-05:00

Justin Morneau returns to Minnesota as a special assistant. Here’s how his playing career looks in context The Minnesota Twins signed Justin Morneau as a special assistant last week, as he transitions into front office work and officially closes the book on his playing career. Let’s take a look at that career in context and how he developed as a prospect. Justin Morneau was a high school catcher in New Westminster, British Columbia, eligible for the 1999 MLB draft. He was well known to scouts due to his performance for Canada’s national youth baseball squad, impressing with his hitting skills and raw power, but his defense was considered substandard. His cold-weather background and questions about his glove pushed him down to the third round of the draft, where the Twins selected him, although this still made him the highest-drafted Canadian in ‘99. He played 17 games in rookie ball, hitting .302/.333/.396 for the Gulf Coast League Twins. I had restrictive space limits in the old STATS Minor League Scouting Notebooks back then and didn’t have room to write about the typical GCL player, but there was something about Morneau that struck me as special. I also had a very enthusiastic report from a scout who called Morneau “a young Larry Walker.” I made sure to put him in the book, writing that “Morneau probably won’t stay at catcher because his mobility is limited, but he definitely has enough power to handle first base. He’s a long-term prospect and his grade (C+) reflects that, but I have a good gut feeling about him.” The Twins sent Morneau back to the Gulf Coast League in 2000 to work on his defense behind the plate. He wasn’t terrible, throwing out 36% of runners, but most observers still saw him as a first baseman in the future. No matter his position, his hitting skills were way ahead of the GCL: he hit a stunning .402/.478/.665 with 10 homers, 30 walks, and only 18 strikeouts in 194 at-bats. I had him as a Grade B, which is a high grade from me for a rookie ball guy. Moved up to Low-A Quad Cities to open 2001, Morneau hit .356/.420/.597 in 64 games. The Twins moved him to first base and he adapted well defensively, but the bat was clearly special. His OPS was outstanding at +43 percent better than league. Promoted to Fort Myers in the High-A Florida State League, he continued hitting with a .294/.385/.437 mark in 53 contests, good for a +19 percent OPS. He hit just .158/.214/.184 in 10 games in Double-A, but nobody was concerned. Overall he hit .314/.389/.497 in 127 games. Scouting reports were excellent and I gave him a Grade B+ entering 2002, ranked 22nd among hitting prospects. Morneau spent 2002 with Double-A New Britain, hitting .298/.356/.474 with 16 homers, 42 walks, and 88 strikeouts in 494 games. His OPS was decent but not spectacular at +13 percent, however New Britain was a tough place to hit and he was hampered much of the year by an infection, possibly cutting into his production. Scouting reports remained very positive, and I gave him a Grade A- entering 2003, ranking him 12th among all hitting prospects. He began 2003 back at New Britain but a .329/.384/.620 mark in 20 games gave him a promotion to Triple-A, where he hit .268/.344/.498 in 71 contests for Rochester. He spent time in Minnesota before the All-Star Break but struggled, went back to Rochester and remained in something of a slump. Overall he hit .226/.287/.377 in 106 major league at-bats. Scouting reports remained impressive, although his plate discipline gave him some trouble at the major league level and he fanned 30 times in those 106 at-bats. Despite his inconsistency he looked like an excellent power prospect to me and I gave him a Grade A entering 2004, ranking him as the Number Six hitting prospect in the game. 2004 was split between Triple-A (.306/.377/.615 in 72 games) and the majors (.271/.340/.536 with 19 homers in just 74 games), justifying his high ranking as prospect.

Interview with Marlins prospect James Nelson

2018-01-15T12:17:07-05:00

Miami’s 2016 15th round pick is off to a strong start in pro ball Drafted by the Miami Marlins in the 15th round of 2016, Georgia native James Nelson has done little more than hit since his first pro appearance in the Gulf Coast League. Fifteenth-round picks don’t always draw a lot of attention from baseball enthusiasts, but talent is talent, and it has a way of making itself known. The Boston Red Sox first selected him in the 18th round in 2015, but Nelson instead decided to attend Cisco Junior College in Texas. In retrospect, he believes it was a much better idea than joining the pro ranks immediately out of high school. “The biggest reason (for turning down Boston) was that I was a shortstop, and a young shortstop, at that,” Nelson recalled. “We were looking at the fact that they had a lot of depth in the infield, and I didn’t think I’d get a lot of playing time to show what I could do.” After one season at Cisco, Nelson was again drafted, this time by the Marlins but a few rounds higher. Coming into the season at age 18, Nelson more than held his own, posting a slash of .284/.344/.364 in 43 games. It was a season light on power, but the numbers suggested that there could be extra bases a-plenty in his future. Adjusting to the mental aspect of pro baseball has its own challenges, though Nelson seems unfazed by this side of the game. “As far as how you carry yourself, there’s a big difference. I mean, you gotta go out on the field and believe you’re the best. Every pitch, every ground ball, it doesn’t matter. You always have to carry yourself with confidence. But I don’t think there were any huge adjustments I had to make.” “And everybody’s good in pro ball, they throw more pitches than I saw in juco. They throw more strikes in the pros; in juco, you could just sit on the fastball. But here, they come at you with different pitches, and they throw those pitches for strikes.” Nelson credits his time in junior college with helping him to adapt to pro-level pitching. “Watching that pitching (in juco) helped me a lot, especially going into pro ball. Some of those guys I saw when I played at Cisco, I saw in the pros as well. The pitching at that level translated over pretty well to what I’ve seen in the minors” Advancing to the Class-A Greensboro Grasshoppers in 2017, Nelson upped his game significantly while playing against older and more-experienced competition. His OPS jumped 101 points, largely due to developing extra-base gap power (31 doubles, 7 homers) and above-average speed (6.70 in 60, measured in 2015). “Speed has helped me out a lot. I had a lot of infield hits, and sometimes I would be like ‘wow, I didn’t know I could beat out that ball’. Hustle helps out a lot, for sure.” Even more impressive: from May 2nd to June 9th, Nelson failed to reach base in a game only once. It was a forty-game stretch in which he batted .364, slugged .549, and drove in 26 runs on the strength of 14 doubles, two triples and four homers. He cooled off dramatically in July, though he did deal with hamstring issues twice in the season (.244 in 25 games), but turned it around again in August with a .354 average and .894 OPS in 12 games. Over the season, he batted an unreal .466 over 58 at-bats with two outs and runners in scoring position. He batted .331 vs. LHP, but was far from a platoon bat (.300 vs. RHP). For his efforts, Nelson was named the Marlins’ Minor-League Player of The Year. He was also a Mid-Season and Post-Season All-Star. Nelson’s season was no fluke; on top of a natural feel for frequent contact, he also learns and adjusts quickly to the approach of opposing pitchers. Not that it’s been easy, of course. “They’re going to throw you a lot of fastballs, obviously, because they don’t know you. But up here, everybody’s good. Everybody can play. So they’re going to come at you with everything they’ve got.” “They’re all trying to make it, just like you.” Nelson does mention a change in[...]



San Francisco Giants: 3 prospects you should know

2018-01-14T11:00:03-05:00

The Giants don’t have a top farm system, but there are some nice under the radar pieces. It wasn’t long ago that the San Francisco Giants farm system was pumping out some of the better pitching talent in the big leagues. Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain, and Madison Bumgarner all rose to stardom. While it’s been a bit barren on the Giants’ farm since, there are still some intriguing pieces. This “3 to know” will thus focus on some of the lesser known pitchers in the system. Melvin Adon, RHP Adon can bring the heat. The problem is that is by and far his best offering. The Giants signed Adon out of the Dominican Republic at the age of 20 in 2015 for just $50,000 as a relative unknown. He had a terrific debut in the Dominican Summer League and made his full season debut in the South Atlantic League last year (full report from Rome can be found HERE). Adon’s fastball can hit triple-digits and he carries it well into games, hitting as high as 98 into the fifth inning in one viewing. He adds a changeup and slider, the latter a strikeout pitch that comes across in the low 80s, if and when he controls it. src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/dL_K9JnWJNM?rel=0&" style="border: 0; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; position: absolute;" allowfullscreen="" scrolling="no"> The Giants kept Adon in the rotation for much of the season, but he needs to develop his secondary pitches for that to become a reality. Now 23, he needs to start to put it together, and lower that career 3.44 walks-per-nine rate. Still, anyone that can unleash a fastball like he can is well worth watching. Garrett Williams, LHP Williams is armed with two well-above average pitches and his success in the hitter-friendly California League is certainly promising. The 23-year-old was drafted in the seventh round of the 2016 MLB Draft out of Oklahoma State. While he made a name for himself on the Little League World Series stage, his high school and college career were plagued by injury and inconsistencies. After the Giants worked on his delivery last year, Williams is showing he just may be able to command his top notch stuff. src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/onhxwFgnlr0?rel=0&" style="border: 0; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; position: absolute;" allowfullscreen="" scrolling="no"> (video from Baseball Census. There’s a good scouting report on Williams there as well.) Williams made 11 starts in the SAL and five in the Cal League. Overall, he went 6-5 with a 2.32 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. Though his walk rate was 3.24-per-nine combined, the number came down significantly once he jumped to High-A, walking just ten over his six appearances. Both MLBPipeline and Baseball America seem to feel the same way in regards to Williams. They grade the fastball and curveball with high regard, so we know he has two big-league ready pitches. With the obvious improvements in his delivery and command last season, Williams has the ceiling of a middle rotation arm, but could wind up a swingman type pitcher if he can’t develop the change and consistency. Garrett Cave, RHP Garrett Cave was the first Division II player taken off the board, not surprising by any means. He transferred into Tampa from Florida International, where pitching coach Sam Militello was able to work with him. There is plenty to like in Cave, but a huge question mark remains on whether he will be coming out of the bullpen or in the rotation. Simply put, Cave has the stuff to be a starting pitcher. He hasn’t shown the consistency in delivering it. He has a great fastball, striking out 29 in his first 20 professional innings in the Northwest League, but walked 5.40 batters-per-nine over the same span. He has four pitches, highlighted by a mid-90s fastball that seems to work better in relief that as a starter. “I throw a four-seam and two-seam fastball, a curveball, change-up, and a cutter. The pitch I really have all of my confidence and heart in is my fastball,” Cave told us. “It has[...]



Post-Hype Player to Watch: Tony Kemp, IF/OF, Houston Astros

2018-01-14T10:01:00-05:00

Trade, Trade, Trade The Houston Astros are really good. Duh, they just won the World Series. They followed a championship formula on their way to a, well, championship, and when the dust settles on the 2017 offseason and the 2018 MLB season comes around, they will not only be back at the top of the food chain but still loaded with organizational depth. It’s remarkable, really, considering Houston’s expenditures in the trade market prior to Justin Verlander did not work out extremely well. They lost Domingo Santana, Josh Hader and Brett Phillips for a lousy season of Carlos Gomez and while Ken Giles has mostly been a winner, they surrendered Vince Velasquez and whatever you want to make of 2013 first overall pick Mark Appel to acquire him. Verlander cost the team potential ace Franklin Perez, bonus baby Daz Cameron and catcher Jake Rogers. No slouches there but Houston still has a dynamite farm system and the trade clearly worked out and will continue to do so. Surely a “good problem to have” but the Astros are facing a playing time crunch regarding their next wave. At least one or two of outfielders Derek Fisher and Kyle Tucker, infielders Colin Moran and J.D. Davis and others will be squeezed out or traded. The latter extremely possible for perhaps Gerrit Cole or Chris Archer or Raisel Iglesias or perhaps Matt Harvey. That list certainly gets less likely as it goes on but the Astros are in a perfect position to reload after reloading. Somewhere in-between the Tucker/Fisher duo and Ronnie Dawson/J.J. Matijevic is the extremely fast and extremely versatile Tony Kemp. Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports Kemp, 26, is barely qualified for post-hype because he’s only garnered 157 at-bats at the big league level. Which is nothing to go on. However, he’s seemingly been forgotten in the massive fold of talent in the Space City. A top 13 entry in Mr. Sickels’ 2015 and 2016 Astros lists, Kemp was selected in the fifth round in 2013 as a second baseman from the Vanderbilt baseball factory. With Jose Altuve on board, Houston tried Kemp in the outfield, a natural fit for the plus-plus-plus-runner but to date he’s still mostly played second base in the minors. However, with the Astros, he’s mostly played left field (47 times) followed by five appearances at second and centerfield. He’s DH’d nine times in the stacked Houston lineup. With all the prospects —graduated and still in the system— along with George Springer, Josh Reddick and Jake Marisnick in the established outfield and Altuve, Alex Bregman, Marwin Gonzalez and Moran in the infield, it’s going to be exceedingly tougher for Kemp to find his place as a member of the organization that drafted him. The MLB sample size is terribly small but the 26-year old has nothing left to prove in the MiLB circuit. There, he’s a career .310 hitter with a .388 OBP, finishing fourth in the talent-packed Pacific Coast League last season with a .329 batting average. His 24 steals tied for third and 95 runs scored earned him a third place finish. There are holes in the 5 foot 6 Tennessee native’s game. With that size, he wasn’t blessed with a power bat but the left-handed, leadoff-capable hitter has walked 238 times in his MiLB career. He’s toiled at Triple-A Fresno since 2015 and without a spot at the big league level, a trade is truly his only hope to becoming anything close to a regular. His speed, discipline and glove mark him as someone who could fill out the end of A.J. Hinch’s bench, but I believe there’s more at store here than that. [...]



Houston Astros: Quick thoughts on what the Pirates netted for Gerrit Cole

2018-01-13T21:39:50-05:00

Finally. Gerrit Cole is no longer a Pittsburgh Pirate. What did the Bucs land for their one-time ace? Finally. In what seemed an entire offseason of speculation and false rumors, the Pittsburgh Pirates have moved Gerrit Cole. The Houston Astros solidified one of the best rotations in the American League, with a scary Big Four. It was a bit of a bizarre trade as it seemed the Pirates settled for quantity over quality. Despite coming off a down season, Cole is just 27 years old, has shown quality stuff and is relatively cheap for at least two more years before becoming a free agent in 2020. It just doesn’t seem like a rebuild move for the Pirates. They got some very nice pieces, but most are big-league ready — if not big leaguers already — and none are elite young talents with superstar potential. Joe Musgrove is no longer a prospect by any means, and his first two seasons in the bigs have been average at best. He’s not a big strikeout guy, but he does have good command, allowing just 2.31 walks per nine over his first 171.1 innings. He will likely be a starter for the Pirates after splitting time in the rotation and ‘pen last year. Michael Feliz is even less of a prospect than Musgrove, having spent time in the majors for the past three seasons. The 24-year-old righty is a big presence (6-foot-4, 235 pounds) out of the bullpen, but has serious command issues. He strikes out a ton, thanks to a powerful fastball-slider combo, but that’s when he’s on. He’s walked 3.6-per-nine over the first 121 innings of his career. Colin Moran could be the best piece in the deal. Moran broke out in his 2017 campaign in the Pacific Coast League. He slashed .308/.373/.543 with 18 home runs. John Sickels had him ranked the Astros No. 5 prospect heading into the season. Here’s what he had to say: Age 25, first round pick by Miami Marlins in 2013 from North Carolina, then traded to Astros; stock has gone up and down but back up again following .301/.369/.532 run through Triple-A, went 4-for-11 in the majors; missed two months after being hit in the face with a foul ball; at this point I don’t think he is the star the Marlins thought they were drafting but he’s getting to his power more often now and has added defensive versatility to his resume, giving him a chance to still have a long career as a decent regular or excellent role player. ETA 2018. Whether there’s a spot on opening day for Moran — David Freese is at third and Josh Bell at first — is a question mark, but he seems to have little to prove in Triple-A. After an uncharacteristic spike in his strikeouts in 2016, he’s increased his power by, as most have done in today’s game, adding some loft and increasing the launch angle. Overall, he controls the strike zone pretty well (striking out just 16.3 percent of the time in ‘17), and his left-handed swing is steady in making contact, so he could serve as a corner utility player until a spot opens. Jason Martin is the only true prospect in the bunch. Martin is the 22-year-old outfielder coming off a solid season split between the California League and Double-A. John had him ranked the 13th-best prospect in the Astros system. Here’s why: ...eighth round pick in 2013; hit combined .278/.332/.487 with 35 doubles, 18 homers, 16 steals, 39 walks, 124 strikeouts in 474 at-bats between High-A and Double-A; multi-skilled athlete with plus running speed and surprising power in 5-11 frame; can play all three outfield positions although arm fits best in left; could be ideal fourth outfielder although if more power comes he could move beyond that. ETA late 2019. Martin was left unprotected in the Rule 5 Draft, and remained an Astro, so clearly they weren’t hesitant to part with him. The big thing is a difference in opinion of his speed. Some see him as someone who can fill the role of a fourth outfielder, others don’t know if he can be more than organizational depth. W[...]



St. Louis Cardinals: 3 prospects you should know

2018-01-13T12:00:04-05:00

While the Cardinals Top 5 prospects are pretty impressive, their system has plenty interesting depth. The St. Louis Cardinals have long been a prospect factory. Once again they find themselves stacked with at least five Top 100 prospects — Alex Reyes, Carson Kelly, Harrison Bader, Tyler O’Neill and Jack Flaherty — with two more knocking on the door in Dakota Hudson and Delvin Perez. As usual, the Cardinals go much deeper than that. Max Schrock, IF Schrock was originally part of the Oakland Athletics “3 Prospects to Know” written on October 22, 2017. Two months later he was shipped to St. Louis in the Stephen Piscotty deal. It’s the second time in roughly a year that Schrock has been traded. Schrock is an interesting prospect. He makes good contact, puts up enough walks compared to an extremely low strikeout rate, yet he continues to get traded. Still, everywhere he lands he becomes on of the organizations top prospects. Here’s what was said prior to the trade. Much is still true. There is nothing elite or sexy about Schrock as a prospect, but he continues to show an innate ability to work pitchers and get on base. Another former Nationals farm hand — once part of the most exciting lineup in the South Atlantic League — Schrock is proving the A’s to be the winners in the deal for ‘Scrabble’. Schrock is a hitter. He has some modest pop, but extra base hits aren’t his game. Some people don’t see value in a guy that doesn’t drive the ball over the fence, but a 128 wRC+ shows that Schrock has plenty. He has an awareness of the strike zone that is unheard of in this era of home run ball, striking out just 9.2 percent of the time this season. This is a guy who has struck out just 100 times in over 1100 career plate appearances. He slashed .321/.379/.422 with 19 doubles and seven home runs. Schrock went from being a 20 stolen base guy to swiping four. Some of that may be a change in style. Some may be the fact that the bulk of his steals came in Hagerstown, when pitchers were worried about Victor Robles and Kelvin Gutierrez as well. Schrock is limited defensively to second base, so he will have to continue to hit to be an every day starter. Kramer Robertson, SS Robertson was one of the gritty leaders that returned his senior year to lead the LSU Tigers. Unfortunately, they fell just short of their goal, losing to Florida in the finals of the College World Series. Shortly after, a bulk of the core — like Greg Deichmann, Alex Lange, and Jared Poche’ — became minor leaguers. The 23-year-old shortstop seems like the kind of prospect that thrives in the Cardinals’ system. Even if he doesn’t pan out as a starter, he plays the game hard enough, that they will find a way to make him a super-utility player. He’s small, with a modest arm, but his speed plays true. It gives him an edge in the field that should help him stick up the middle. Thanks to the ability to consistently get the bat on the ball and a keen eye at the plate (he struck out 36 times and walked 21 in his first 215 career at bats), his speed will help offensively as well, stealing 10 of 14 bases in his pro debut. Robertson will likely never be an elite prospect. But in the Cardinals system, that has never meant big league success wasn’t imminent. Austin Gomber, LHP Gomber had an impressive start to his career after the Cardinals took him out of Florida Atlantic in the fourth round of the 2014 MLB Draft. His first full season at Double-A was less sexy, but Gomber still shows a lot of promise. The 24-year-old is a big southpaw, listed at 6-foot-5 and 235 pounds. Despite not having overpowering stuff, he has shown good command and the ability to go innings at every level, going at least six innings in his last seven starts of 2017. After a good debut in the New York-Penn League, the Cardinals worked with Gomber on his curveball, giving it more dive, and m[...]



Cincinnati Reds preliminary prospect grade breakdown

2018-01-13T10:01:01-05:00

I’ve finished my first pass through the Cincinnati Reds farm system. Here are the first draft results: Grade A: ZeroGrade A-: TwoGrade B+: TwoGrade B: FourGrade B-: SixGrade C+: 25Grade C: A bunch Nick Senzel is a Grade A- right now but there’s a chance he could go to a straight A.
