Vientos out to an early lead! I'd consider this one an upset.

Went Peterson and Szapucki, personally. Both should help out the major league club in 2020, even if it does seem likely that Szapucki is a reliever. But I expected Baty to pull away fairly easily. Seems like NYFS is fairly down on him for a guy who was picked 12th overall and considered by many to be the best hitter in the draft.

Changed my vote to Vientos over Baty. As another poster pointed out, Vientos is younger and somewhat producing at a higher level right now.

Not down on him but K’ing 56 of 186 PAs in rookie ball is some indication that he may take some time to develop and he’s not young for his level. Hopefully we’ll get a better read on the real talent level this coming season.

The K’s are a concern

But Baty is a pure power bat with big upside

He also has a gun for an arm and could be more of an asset defensively than many thought

Vientos is a nice prospect who I will take with next pick but baty beats him based on upside

Another narrow finish but outside the range of a run-off (5%). Baty wins.

Also since no noms... I nominate Humphreys. That he's supposedly healthy enough that they felt the need to add him to the 40-man is encouraging, and he could be a fast-riser when he's fully healthy even if he has limited upside.
