The GCL Sox playing a young OF today. All three 2013 draftees (Monge, Hudson, Austin) turned 18 this year, and all are having successful professional debuts. None got outrageous bonuses (boni?? jk), but have the tools to project some upside, even if they're longshots to reach a high ceiling.
You've got to get your Josh Reddicks and Ryan Kalishes from somewhere.

Dedgar Jimenez with another great outing for the DSL Sox. 6IP 3H 1ER 1BB 7K. The one run came on a HR in his sixth (final) inning of work. Dedgar is now sporting a 2.03 ERA, 30K/4BB, with a WHIP just under 1.00. Still fairly small sample size (31 innings pitched), but the results so far are encouraging.
Well, it'd have to be the pitching, because there aren't any hitters to write home about. The Basabe twins and Guerra were supposed to be the players to watch, but each around .200
Kukuk is pretty intriguing if he could ever harness his control.
Only 37 hits in 68 2/3 innings he's given up this year. Thru the 5th tonight. That's 4.85 hits per nine innings. Of course, the batters don't know what the heck to do because he's walked 58 to go with 72 k's. Not much contact in his games.
