Baseball America Spring Training Prospect Report -- Feb. 25, 2020



Monday's Stars

Yoshitomo Tsutsugo, DH, Rays. Tsutsugo’s introduction to his new U.S. team is going swimmingly. In two games, he's come to the plate four times. He's yet to be retired, as he's gone 2-for-2 with 2 walks. Yesterday he walked and hit this impressive home run to the opposite-field power alley.

Yermin Mercedes, DH, White Sox. Mercedes has always had a knack for hitting, but he's had to scrap, fight and claw his way to the 40-man roster as a bad-bodied catcher. He's on the White Sox 40-man roster now, and he is not getting cheated in his swings. Mercedes went 2-for-2 yesterday with a long home run that cleared the berm beyond left field.

Andrew Vaughn, 1B, White Sox. Vaughn went 1-for-2 with a double yesterday, but including him in the intro is partly an excuse to show the excellent slow-mo look at his swing.

Jaylin Davis, CF, Giants. A late-bloomer (25-years-old) who was a 24th round pick of the Twins in 2015 out of Appalachian State. Davis had found his power--he hit 36 home runs last year after hitting 39 home runs in his first four seasons combined. That is why the Giants acquired him from Minnesota last year in the Sam Dyson deal. Davis went 2-for-4 with a double and a triple yesterday. He already has more spring training big league at-bats this year (5) then he had gotten in the previous four years of his pro career.

Bryan Abreu, RHP, Astros. Abreu struck out four of the six batters he faced in his spring debut. The Astros No. 5 prospect has an excellent breaking ball to go with a mid-90s fastball. Tigers hitters did not have fun facing him on Monday.

Matthew Liberatore, LHP, Cardinals. Liberatore's stat line from yesterday is an ugly one -- three hits, three walks and five earned runs in .2 innings. He did flash his excellent curveball at times in his brief outing, but he also had some trouble getting a feel for it at times.
