    I liked how in the first video he was being compared to Upton and then he throws a 12 hopper from RF to the plate. But hey, hopefully he pans out hah.

    Edit: In the 2nd video, the back swing kind of reminds me of Alfonso Soriano lol.

    I'm guessing he was MLB's top rated guy? Because BA had Franklin Barreto ranked #1 who signed with the Blue Jays.

    im excited about it but a lot of these prospects never pan out a lot of times. hopefully he does. his swing does remind me of soriano like someone else said. it does look like he does have an extremely quick bat through the zone which for a 16 year old is pretty impressive.
