Was hoping they’d start him in the gulf coast league.  Wondering if he kills it for a month he’ll get promoted.

I hope so because I want him starting next year in low a

it's probably a friendlier environment for a kid to start playing.  He's still a kid.  Moving that quick to the States can be a shock.  I haven't heard how his English is.  It can be isolating even with the support structure.  Even Soto learned most of his English when he was hurt and could focus.

Hit his first career HR yesterday. Not exactly lighting it up in the DSL, but he is only 17.

.268/.351/.381

We’ll use the Soto money to lock him up. :(

Any word on if he’s still trying to switch hit?

He is switch hitting. Batting .256/.314/.397 left handed and .316/.480/.316right handed. Much smaller sample batting right but hes walking and putting the bat on the ball. Showing more pop.left handed.

Search him on Twitter, and you can see individual clips of him hitting g from each side, including his 1st bomb.

Cool, but like all prospects let's see him do it in AA before anyone gets too excited.
