    You read the MLB write-up on Almonte:

    The teenager is a bat-first corner outfielder who projects to be a plus hitter with plus power potential if he continues to develop at a normal pace. Almonte has a chance to be a middle-of-the-order slugger who can drive in runs in the big leagues one day. https://www.mlb.com/prospects/intern...almonte-694200
    Then compare to Hendrickson and Wainwright, and even Reece Hinds and Tyler Callahan from last year's draft, and you see a type starting to materialize. The current braintrust wants guys that can hit the baseball and hit it hard. They'll figure everything else down the road.

    In the write-up about Almonte, they said he's particularly good at driving the ball to left-center. The ability to drive the ball to the opposite field also happens to be one of the most predictive thing about power potential down the road.

    It will be interesting to see how the coronavirus affects international bonuses and numbers (if at all).

    MLB has moved the start of the Signing period to Jan 15, 2021. (Because they haven't hurt baseball enough yet)
