Scouting reports



These are low level IFA's. You won't find any "scouting reports".

I think Montero was a late signing. (late as in 2018 signing but 2017 bonus pool type, Jan-June). Sometimes they work out, but as metro pointed out, start paying attention when they reach GCL (maybe).

As a sidenote, the mets seemed to stack the deck in DSL last year, using a bunch of 20 and 21 year old starting pitchers in a league of teenages. They were #1 and #5 in ERA and #3 and #5 in team average age. I have no idea if that was by intention or just how it worked out.

Just to be clear, I wasn't saying it's impossible these guys end up something but these aren't the types who will have scouting reports or blurbs. For now they are "just guys".

This is an area I really think the Mets should prioritize. Stockpile international signing money, and invest in scouting in Latin America.. Make international money part of any deal we make. Like the deal for Reynolds

It seems like the Yankees, Red Sox and Rangers are always loading up with outstanding talent here

From @BenBadler on July 2nd catcher Francisco Alvarez (Mets are favorites), "Has a stout build, and while some scouts think he will need to improve his defense to stay behind the plate, he has one of the best track records of hitting and hitting for power in games in Venezuela."

Francisco Alvarez | Rank: 13 Hometown: Guatire, Venezuela
Position: C Age: 16 DOB: 11/19/2001
Bats: R Throws: R Height: 5'11" Weight: 220 lb.Watch
Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 55 | Run: 40 | Arm: 55 | Field: 50
At 5-foot-11 and 220 pounds, Alvarez is a strong prospect with a stocky build and an offense-oriented set of tools. He has a reputation for hitting well in games, which speaks to his emerging hit tool. He also shows power now and the potential for more in the future. Like most young catching prospects, Alvarez is not known for his running ability.

The teenager's bat stands out more than his glovework at the moment, but he has also shown a good arm and solid defensive actions behind the plate. He is expected to improve on his overall defensive game once he signs with a team and receives daily instruction at a club's academy.

Alvarez's body -- and what it could look like in the future as he grows -- is a concern for some skeptical scouts. His bat has fewer critics. Combine Alvarez's hitting ability with the position he plays, and it's easy to see why the teen is one of the most coveted prospects on the market.

Alvarez is from Guatire, Venezuela, and is trained by Javier Mendoza. The Mets are the favorite to sign him.
