Yorman Rodriguez is having a really nice season.

Of the three young sticks in the GCL (Y-Rod, Duran, Hamilton,) Yorman looks to be the most ready for Dayton next season. Although, if Hamilton can return to the lineup and continue to produce, he could start there as well.

Granted, it's still very early.

17 is young for the midwest league isn't it? He's still just 16 right? I'd think Billings and then Dayton late if he hits at Billings.

He turns 17 in less than a month, so he'll be 18 halfway through next season. It's a little young sure. But not if his defense is there and he continues to hit well in the GCL.

Sure there aren't a lot of 18 year-old's in the MWL, but there's also not a lot of 18 year old's with $3MM talent.

TRF
07-13-2009, 05:55 PM
true. I wasn't sure about his age, and I think there was a 17 year old player in the Futures game yesterday, so it isn't impossible.

Anyone have Yorman's stats from this year?

Also, don't forget the Southern League All Star game is tonight. Travis Wood (8-3, 1.29 ERA) is the starter for the North Division, and Todd Frazier will be in the starting lineup as well.

The game starts in a little over two hours at 8:05 EDT.

I agree. I hope the Reds are very patient with Duran, Yorman, Valor, and even Billy Hamilton. Far too often you see other organizations rush their young talent and the kid stalls out. I hope the Reds don't that mistake. I'd like to see the Duran/Yorman/Hamilton trio start next season in Billings and then maybe make a late season cameo in Dayton if they hit well in Billings.

No need to baby them, as long as they're ready. Yorman especially, since he's already showing solid baseball aptitude, and he's probably the most talented player in the system.

.295/.368/.344 - .712 OPS.

Those numbers are impressive when you consider that he's only 16 years old and the GCL is a tough environment to hit in. I don't think anyone expects him (or Duran) to hit for much power yet. Both of them are as skinny as a rail and have plenty of filling out to do.

True. With a very raw product like Rodriguez, the ability to adjust is more important than the actual numbers. If he can continue to be one of the top 2 or 3 producers on the team, he may be able to start next year in Dayton.

19 years old. 5-foot-10, 150 pound switch-hitter. Hit .316/.388/.394 - .782 with two different DSL Reds teams last year. Other than that, I know nothing else about him.

"Batted .316 with 1 HR, 21 RBI and 21 stolen bases with the Rookie DSL Reds... enjoyed a 10-game hitting streak from 7/22-8/2 (20-42, .476)... went 0-for-3 in his next game on 8/4 and then from 8/5-8/20 reeled off a 12-game streak (20-47, .426)."

Folks, Mace Thurman is ridiculous. Why is nobody touting this guy? (Actually, he was a main reason why I wanted the offseason Top Prospect list to extend beyond 40. It didn't seem complete without him.)

Frankly, I don't know what he's got. All I know is he's left-handed, he's 22, and after his 3.1 scoreless innings tonight, these are his numbers for two seasons of professional ball:

89 IP, 60 H, 102 K, 31 BB, 2.52 ERA

he has a lot of good breaking stuff, when I saw him he was throwing his fastball around 88-91, he kinda reminded me of Kent Merker

Thanks. Kinda sounds like a LOOGY -- although, with that kind of repertoire, I'm a little surprised he hasn't been tried as a starter. Maybe that's why he pitched 3.1 innings.
