Fangraphs top 200 prospects


Recommended Posts



50. Heany

Scouting Report: Heaney was heralded in his draft year out of Oklahoma State as an advanced pitchability lefty with above average stuff that could turn into a #3/4 starter in short order and that’s almost exactly what’s happened. He already got a big league look in 2014 with Miami before being traded to the Dodgers in the Dee Gordon trade, then flipped to the Angels for Howie Kendrick. His fastball and slider will both flash 60 in his best outings, but Heaney relies more on his feel to pitch than his raw stuff to get strikeouts and grounders. He should be up at some point in 2015 depending on the big league need.


54. Newcomb 

Scouting Report: Newcomb was the Hunter Dozier of the 2014 draft, a player that clubs liked higher than the media consensus had them, partly because teams weren’t sure if they were the only team that had him so high, so they kept it secret. Sources have indicated that the Mariners probably would’ve taken Newcomb at the 6th pick if Alex Jackson wasn’t there and there were a couple more spots where he was the backup choice before the Angels stopped the slide at 15th overall. The things scouts like so much about Newcomb are easy to see: he’s huge (6-foot-5/240), athletic, left-handed, has a fresh arm (New England multi-sport kid), flashed three plus pitches (sits 91-94, hits 97 mph) and shows surprising pitchability considering his background. His off-speed stuff plays more to a 55 on a consistent basis, but the raw elements are here for an ace if Newcomb can make all the necessary adjustments and stay healthy.


Roberto Baldoquin


Ricardo Sanchez came in at 139 for the braves.

Scouting Report: Sanchez had a lot of good buzz in 2014 as an advanced 17-year-old pitcher in Rookie ball and he was surprisingly traded this offseason by the Angels to the Braves. Atlanta was surprised and thrilled that Sanchez was available and his solid average stuff and feel with a knockout curveball should move quickly through the minors, with his full-season debut coming in 2015 at Low-A.
