    7. Aristides Aquino, of

    Born: April 22, 1994. B-T: R-R. Ht.: 6-4. Wt.: 190. Signed: Dominican Republic, 2011. Signed by: Richard Jimenez.

    Background: Heading into 2015, Aquino appeared poised to build on an excellent season at Rookie-level Billings, but instead he struggled at low Class A Dayton and returned to Billings. But at high Class A Daytona in 2016 his production caught up to his tools, and he ranked second in the Florida State League in home runs (23) and slugging percentage (.531).

    Scouting Report: Aquino always has passed the eye test. He’s a tall, broad-shouldered right fielder with athleticism to go with his impressive and still growing strength. He keeps his hands moving, pumping the bat throughout his pre-pitch setup, but he stays controlled in his stance with solid plate coverage. He takes a big rip, but it’s a relatively level swing that keeps the bat in the hitting zone for a while. When he gets his arms extended, Aquino pulls the ball for home runs, but he’s also comfortable driving the ball to right field for doubles and triples. Because of his power-oriented swing, he often turns in average run times out of the batter’s box, but he’s a plus runner underway and that speed plays both on the bases and in the outfield. He’s an above-average defender in right with a plus-plus arm.

    The Future: Aquino has prototype right-field tools, though his plate discipline issues enhance his risk profile. He has impact potential as he heads to Double-A Pensacola in 2017.

    My shortlist got destroyed. Tejeda was the only one left. Was really hoping to get Bichette.
    Had him on my short list, could end up being a great pick.

    I gambled that the recent exchange about Blue Jay prospect homerism would allow Zeuch to drop a few more spots for my next pick.

    I appreciate your thought process. I didn't really have a backup after Bichette and Zeuch.

    Not much information on him but might as well swing for the fences with my first pick.

    I ended up a victim in the way I hoped others would. I shouldn't even be trusted to decide between mozzarella and cheddar.

    Between A- and A, Zeuch had a 68.7% (!) GB% according to BP, to go with his great K/BB numbers in the small ~30 IP sample. The GB% is higher than 99.2% of minor league pitchers with 20 IP (including relievers) above Rookie level in 2016.

    this league is annoyingly savvy.

    players really do not "fall" at all.

    and it's fucking absurd because we are drafting guys that, for some, it's difficult to even find a scouting report on.

    With Aquino gone, I really don't think my guy will make it to 69.

    Someone please let me trade up.

    I had a list from North, but Zeuch and Aquino were the last two guys on it.

    You shouldn't ever have to decide. The answer is always Cheddar, unless your putting it on pizza.
