Re: Baseball America's Top 20 GCL Prospects
Let me add some thoughts re: their eval of Yorman...
Again, super weak that they ding him for what he did in a higher league. And, if we look in a little detail at his performance in the Pioneer League (a league populated by a lot of players 4-5 years older than Yorman), do we really see that his weaknesses were exposed?
Take away his last 10 games, in which he went 4 for 42. (That's about a quarter of his season there.) Before that slide, his BA was .298, and 16 of his 36 hits were for extra bases. I think it's well within the realm of possibility that the kid -- emphasis on 'kid' -- was just plain tired and ready to go home, not that some secret to his apparently egregious weaknesses was suddenly revealed to league pitchers.
Shallow stuff from BA, in my opinion, just trotting out old evals.
