    2019 MLB.com Prospect Pipeline Lists

He does not have a weakness, is polished in every area, plays as hard as a guy who is a non-drafted free agent trying to make a roster. So I have nothing but positives to say about Senzel. But the fact is, among the five tools, Siri actually has a decided advantage on Senzel in four of the five. Siri is obviously faster and has a better arm. He obviously has more power. And while Senzel is a very good defensive player, Siri is better. In no way am I saying that Siri is the better prospect because Senzel is much more polished, but if you want to say Senzel is a 60 in four tools, Siri should be too. MLB Pipeline's tool ratings for Siri look like they were assigned by someone that has never seen him play.

    Not all skills are created equally.

    The ability to actually put the bat on the ball is, unfortunately, a career defining skill.
