Watched him in the first game of the WBC. He went 1-3 with a Solo HR. His first at bat was a long drive to the warning track that was well hit, and his third was a hard line drive that only didn’t make it to right because it hit the first baseman. His first two at bats I will point out were against Chien-Ming Wang. Defensively he made a nice play in the first inning moving in and throwing out the runner at first base. He is 22 with nice size and looked very comfortable at the plate, showed patience as well too. I will keep my eye out for anything else I see prospect wise during the WBC.

Garcia has a lot of Pop too, too bad he fell off at the end of the year, could have been up there to an extent with Hanson and Polanco.

Will his glove & his speed get him to the bigs?

You could add more people to the list. Willy Garcia, Jose Osuna, Luis Urena, Max Moroff.

Each seems to be a potential breakout candidate.
