Yankees have a prospect, their number 1, named Jasson Dominguez. He is 5-9, 190 pounds:

Crews, then, is tall enough.



Betts is also only 5’9

Tomorrow appears to be the day

Nats news: Dylan Crews will officially be signing his contract with the team tomorrow afternoon at Nationals Park, via sources.

I’m told he will initially report to West Palm to get indoctrinated and will soon be sent to Single-A Fredericksburg to start his pro career.

Indoctrinated?

"We want you to practice swinging only at off the plate stuff, especially balls that bounce or are at eye level. We reward impatience and hyper aggressiveness. As for defense, we have some old Nyjer Morgan films. Note how he slams the glove down after he misses a catch and the ball is in play. As for baserunning, there's this Nook Logan classic."

Dunno. He looks like that guy that tells chicks he's 6 foot when he's really. 5'10" and three fifths
It looks like the 2 kids that tweeted are tall lanky sophomores and Seniors, so might be taller than they look.   

In fact, the sophomore (David Slaughter) is listed as over 8' on his travel ball team, but probably exagerating a bit.

The No. 1 player on my Big Board this year, Crews went to the Nats with the second overall pick after a tremendous career at LSU that saw him win the Golden Spikes Award this spring in a very crowded field. He’s an outstanding hitter who shows excellent feel for the zone and makes excellent swing decisions, looking for pitches he can drive and using the whole field well while showing power from the pull side over to right-center. He’s a 55 runner who has developed into at least a solid-average defender in center, good enough to project him to stay there going forward, although I think he’ll end up pushed to a corner by a plus defender at some point (such as fellow Nats prospect James Wood). The bat will play anywhere and he’s a likely high-average, .400 OBP guy who should get to 20-plus homers a year – and might see the majors by this time in 2024.

Heyman’s the first national reporter on record about an agreement.

Baseball America slots Crews as the sport’s #3 overall prospect behind Jackson Holliday and Jackson Chourio. He’s one slot ahead of fellow Washington outfielder James Wood (and two places above Skenes). The Nats will hope for Crews and Wood to anchor their outfields of the future once they pull out of their ongoing rebuild.

i mentioned loudly in the Nats store tonight that they had Dylan Crews merchandise and pointed to the hats with the interlocked DC logo on the front. I got a few odd looks. :)

here's the direct link to the article. very cool to see how the other top prospects are reacting:

My apologies, I keep forgetting that Twitter’s new policy prevents people without accounts from reading tweets. I’ll try to remember to post the articles directly from now on whenever possible.

Weirdly that Twitter policy doesn't seem to apply to me anymore. I went about a week not being able to open Twitter links but now I can again with a little banner at the top of the page prompting me to either sign in or login but other than that allows me to view the tweet in full.
