    Early Bandwagon: Carlos Jorge (DSL Middle Infielder)

    I'm uncertain how many people are interested in the Reds' Dominican team, but I very much enjoy dreaming of what might be when it comes to these young prospects. Carlos Jorge is just exactly the type that makes my heart go pitter-pat. He's 17 (nearly 18), nearly a year younger than the average age for the DSL. But he's currently sporting a line that's outstanding. Before today's 1-2 with a BB, his line was .330/ .400/ .534/ .934. After today's walk, he's now at 12 BBs in 106 PAs. That against 20 K's. That works out to, according to fangraphs, a nearly 10% BB rate and a K rate of less than 20%. It's also a 162 wRC+.

    That's all great. I mean, it's really good to have super young guys interesting enough to follow. But what makes him even more interesting is that he plays middle infield (currently), and he's been really effective at stealing bases. 17 SBs on the season against zero CS.

    BA had this to say about the LH hitter in January of this year:

    Beyond their two expected seven-figure signings, the Reds are also linked to Carlos Jorge, a smaller-framed Dominican shortstop trending up. Jorge has a good mix of bat-to-ball skills and quick-twitch athleticism, with a simple, fluid swing from the left side and plus-plus speed, with a good chance he ends up at second base. He's expected to sign for around $500,000.
    Here's a video:
