Evan DeLuca also allowed 4 earned runs in 4 innings bringing his ERA to 9.49 for the season.

We did over pay for him last year and he is having a very bad start. Maybe he develops into Whitey Ford down the road but he sure started badly.

Be very careful in placing too much emphasis on stats in rookie ball. It's the beginning of an enduring journey with a very long way to go yet.

DeLuca's journey won't be very long unless his performance improves. That's the point. I wish him the best though.

Now one guy I am starting to get intrigued about is Cito Culver. He's got his average up to .261 and won't turn 18 until 8/26. He's definately holding his own as a very young kid in the GCL. I wasn't so optimistic about his selection in early June and he is starting to prove me wrong. Hope he keeps it up.

Derek Jeter made like 42 errors in his first pro season.

Its about what you learn, not the numbers- they are almost meaningless- especially in the glorified scrimages in Tampa.

You can't necessarily judge improvement/development by a player based on his individual stats in rookie ball which is my point.

It's the high upside guys who also show high performance which are few and far between. If you aren't going to exercise patience regarding GCL prospects then the minor leagues probably aren't for you.

He had great discipline in the DSL too, likely why he was pushed to the GCL. Very advanced hitter at such a young age. I like him a lot

This is absolutely correct.

It is this exact point that leads me to say each winter that it is kind of pointless of try and rank young guys until we get a full season look at them. Rookie ball is about learning, not performance.

Of course, when a guy is a teenager and is superior to the rest of the league while flashing elite skills (Montero and Sanchez are the examples here), then it makes sense to rate them.

However, trying to draw conclusions about guys who are early on the learning curve like DeLuca, Richardson and others based on numbers in glorified scrimmages is foolish. They flash tools and talent, but they are in rookie ball because they need to learn to apply these skills consistently. Some days they will "have it"; other days, they won't.

I think this is right. I read an interview with him after he signed where he said he'd take a couple of games in the GCL to get some ABs because he hadn't faced live pitching in so long (he signed his contract in Tampa), and then head off to SI or Charleston.

If this is the case, so it explains why he is batting lead-off, and also why he is in the GCL. My guess is he ends up in SI. They can use a hitter there.

Thinking two 17 year olds in the GCL don't have the odds stacked against them becoming the starting middle infield for the NY Yankees is just the latest in a long line of obvious examples of that. It's embarrassing at this point.

Yes, the GCL is all about upside. Trying to project a 17-year-old on the starting roster is not - not even close - to what it's all about.

yankee82093
08-17-10, 03:12 PM
Maybe this:

From the perspective of developing a farm system, the purpose of prospects is to provide value to the Major League team, by
1) playing for the major league team
2) getting traded for players that can help the major league team.


Thus any prospect who isn't good enough to do either of those is not very impressive, and certainly not valuable.


If they are neither impressive nor valuable (which they wouldn't be if they never made the majors or netted major league players), I don't think it's likely we will be hearing about them for a long, long time.

Based on one pickoff in his first game you're basing that on.

Yes. Isn't it time for your nap?

Everyone is going to have a little rough spots, perhaps he was nervous too and wasn't paying his full attention. Give him a few more games perhaps.

Williams 1-3 in his first game but what caught my eye is he was caught stealing and picked off. May have 70 speed but it's going to take a lot of refinement to make it effective.

Something tells me there are a lot of things that poster doesn't realize yet.

Yes. It was a tongue in cheek comment meant for 1962 but I think his napping now.

He wasn't joking until he got called on it.

Kind of. I usually make firm judgments after about a week in the GCL, but this was so egregious I made an exception.

Williams and Gumbs 0 for 3 today. Gamel 1 for 3

GCL yanks up 4-0 after 3. Gumbs 2-2, Kuo witha 3 run homer. Bryan Mitchell 3 hitless innings so far with 4 Ks, inlcuding striking out the side in the 3rd. Their season ends tommorrow, so it'd be great to see them finish up on a positive note.

Any GCL guys moving up when the season is over there or most going home/instructional league?

There may be a couple that go to Staten Island for the last 2 weeks of the season but most of them will just report to Tampa for Fall Instructionals. Mitchell was terrific in his final start of the season. 5IP, 1 hit, 1 Walk, 7 Ks, no runs. Brett Gerritse finished up with 2 scoreless innings.
