5-11 160 lbs

DOB: January 16, 2002 (opening day 2021 age: 19)

Some reports on him:

https://www.mlb.com/prospects/nationals/jeremy-de-la-rosa-682707

seems likely he'll head to low a next year, and based on how he does could be a guy to keep an eye on.

surprised this guy didn't already have a FTP thread.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/2020/11/19/nationals-position-player-prospects/
from an article by Jesse Dougherty interviewing Mark Scialabba on Nats position prospects.  After discussing Antuna, Pineda, Cuff, and Mendoza:
Quote
The same goes for Marte, De La Rosa and Quintana, except the Nationals typically move outfielders faster. That depends, of course, on how these three progress in the next few years. Scialabba noted Marte’s speed and arm. With De La Rosa, a prospect Scialabba first pointed to in the spring of 2019, the club sees athleticism and a developing left-handed bat. And with Quintana, the youngest player Scialabba named, the Nationals heard the right noises off his bat this fall.

Remember, Scialabba prefaced this all by calling Antuna, Cluff, Mendoza and Pineda “A-ball type players.” That means they’re not quite on the major league doorstep. That means De La Rosa, Marte and Quintana are a step or two behind that. But it’s never too early to project.

Through 43 games at Fredericksburg -- .173/.256/.259-- 3 2B 3 HR -- 61 Ks in 180 PAs with 17 BB

Pretty consistent slash line all year, mostly playing in CF.

Sounds like the perfect successor for Vic with that slash line!

Slashing .286/.352/.551 after 49 ABs. It's early, but that is probably the best ~50 AB stretch he has had in the organization. He is repeating Fredericksburg, but he only turn 20 this year. He isn't too old.

Guy to watch if he is still hitting in a few weeks.

I'm back to paying attention to him. May be a real prospect.

I think it's fair to get very excited about him again, he's still only 20.

Yes. I was going to make case for Harrisburg but that's a big jump.

Good vibes from FG on De La Rosa's play in CF:

Considering how strong and physical De La Rosa already looked at 18-19, I thought he’d quickly slide to an outfield corner, or at least slow down enough to obviously project there long-term. Instead, he’s gotten faster, and scout sources are shocked at the runs times he’s laying down; they think he has not only increased his shot of remaining in center, but that he could be above-average there at peak.

They have him up to #5 in the system, call him a 45 FV prospect I think because of distance to the majors.  They've dropped Lara down to #13, the biggest fall among the top 10 going into the season.

This is very encouraging and I would love to hear more about his defense in CF. One notable change in his game has been his stolen bases. 7 SB and 8 CS in 2021, 26 SB with 5 CS in 2022. He must be improving his baserunning ability and his speed must be improving to really become a true 5-tool CF.
