He nearly beat out a high hopper to 2nd. So, he's showing good concentration pitch to pitch, and he's playing hard. I like what I see. He does look a bit uncertain on his routes -- I don't think he's a confident outfielder, but he's got the tools to be OK out there, and I expect him to improve over time. What's exciting is the potential in his bat -- it's got serious lightning.
I was as skeptical about Yorman as anyone prior to this stint in Dayton. But you have to go on what's in front of you, and right now I'd say he's shot himself right back into an organizational top 5-10. The question, as always, will be consistency.
Yorman's progress has been very frustratng at times and it's easy to forget how young he is since he's been around several year's, but there's so much raw talent there's always the chance that he turns it around.
