Last night my new novio debuted in AA with a bang, going 2 for 4 with a homer. At the moment with Victor Robles struggling somewhat in AA, and Devers in the majors, it's a battle between the Braves Ronald Acuna vs Eloy Jimenez for the number one prospect in the minors at the moment. Before you dismiss this as a silly discussion, think about what type of prospects and players you prefer. Are you the type to bet on a middle of the order bat like Rafael Devers or Eloy Jimenez? Or do you prefer the 5 category stud with Mike Trout upside like Yoan Moncada or Ronald Acuna? It's a tough call, and as my Uncle Manny would say, "I ain't going to kick either of them out of bed for eating cookies". Yeah, my uncle is a strange guy when it comes to baseball, and you thought I was bad. All this to say, it's a battle that will rage well into 2018. In the words of the street poets Black Sheep, you can get with this or you can get with that. The choice is yours. I waffle back and forth, as I typically prefer the mashers, but Acuna's assault on AAA is hard to ignore. I'm going to hold judgement until I have to...

<![CDATA[Eloy Jimenez knows exactly what he wants from his baseball career]]> Eloy Jimenez, the White Sox prospect who homered on Friday after predicting one earlier in the day, knows exactly what he wants out]]> 4979449 Mon, 07 Aug 2017 15:00:02 EDT CSN Chicago <![CDATA[Minor League Update: Eloy Battles Chicago Style Fake News]]> Eloy Jimenez has been a man with a mission. Since joining Winston-Salem, the Chi-Sox high A affiliate, he’s slashed .352/.418/.690 with 5 homers and 18 RBI’s in his first 20 games. The 20 year old slugger has continued to make improvements at the plate in 2017, walking at a 10% clip, while maintaining K rates at or below 20%. The combination of contact, patience, and power is a rare one. This is why I rank Eloy amongst the very elite prospects in the game with such contemporaries as Acuna, Robles, Guerrero, and Tucker. He’s likely to spend the remainder of 2017 in Winston-Salem, before being assigned to AA next season out of camp. He has a real shot at the number one prospect in all of baseball, once Ronald Acuna heads to the majors. Despite all of his recent success and oodles of upside, it will be years before we find out just how high of a price the Cubs paid for Quintana. That’s not to say that Jimenez is can’t miss, though he’s a close as they come. The Chicago White Sox system is full of future potential stars, but none shone brighter at the moment than Eloy. A future .280/35/100 player is the ceiling, with a power hitting DH floor. It wouldn’t shock me if we saw Jimenez some time in late 2018, with the mostly likely time frame being September. Here’s what else I saw in the MiLB...]]> 4978536 Sun, 06 Aug 2017 3:07:01 EDT
