If he puts it together, watch out. So much raw potential. His ability to drive the ball with so much ease is amazing. He is not big at all, but he has a smooth swing and goes to all fields. Also has above average speed. He reminds me off EE at 3rd. Makes the great play, but boots the return one. Kind of slings the ball like Edwin also.
Fantastic fielder. Good range and quick hands. Could turn the DP in his sleep. Made a great diving play at SS last night. Bat is still a work in progress, but he had a double today.
-Mateo and Geronimo
Both have electric stuff. Geronimo had a variety of pitches he can throw for strikes. Geronimo got into a bit of trouble today, but I still came away impressed
Was unhittable in nearly 5 innings last night. Good stuff. Talked to the Dragons pitching coach before the game today, and he says when DeJesus gets ahead of guys he is unhittable.
And on a side not, all love all the guys in the Dragons bullpen. I sat right behind their bullpen the last 2 days, and they are just awesome. They are a fantastic group a guy who know how to have fun.
I have some pitctures that I took with my phone, and if they turned out ok I'll post them later.
THanks. You are very lucky to see the games.
Your report on Stubbs is particularly encouraging.
