We made the trek up to Lake Elsinore this past weekend, and out popped an article at Hardball Times. I got my first look at Jaff Decker and saw several other prospects, including Allan Dykstra, Drew Cumberland, Cole Figueroa, Blake Tekotte, and Anthony Bass.
My general feeling on Decker, after seeing him, “is that he looks good in the batter’s box and that concerns about his body appear to be overstated.” As for Cumberland, despite his terrific numbers, he hasn’t wowed me when I’ve watched him this year. Meanwhile, I remain irrationally optimistic about Bass despite his lack of strikeouts, and I’m almost ready to admit out loud that Dykstra is a lost cause.
Go read the article. It’s got pictures and stuff.
