    Does anyone know what Cyborg did last year with this drunk Jung Ho Kang? Was he MILB or IR eligible?

    Also, Jung Ho Kang on the block.

    I think he's suspended, and doesn't get any kind of flag. I could be wrong though.

    Track Record: Robert built an impressive track record in Cuba, where he put up an .895 OPS as a 15-year-old against older competition on the island's 18U league. Robert, who had heaps of international success, signed with the White Sox for $26 million in May, setting a franchise record for an international signee. He impressed scouts in the Dominican Summer League in 2017 despite a few nagging injuries.

    Scouting Report: While Eloy Jimenez is farther along, Robert's tools are just as impressive. He boasts a strong, lean frame and his swing is compact and simple, producing well above-average bat speed. He's got plus raw power and slugged three homers in limited time in the DSL. Robert tends to swing and miss on elevated fastballs, but it's not a huge ding on his record. He graded as an above-average to plus runner as an amateur, but reports indicate his speed has increased as he matures. The White Sox believe Robert will be able to maintain enough speed and range to stay in center field, though his bat will profile in a corner if necessary.

    The Future: After spending 2017 in the DSL mainly for tax purposes, Robert likely will join a crowded outfield at high Class A Winston-Salem in 2018.

    I obviously take Gore. Sir BJ is up I think. Someone pm him for me I'm not home.
    Track Record: Gore posted jaw-dropping numbers throughout his prep career, winning BA's High School Player of the Year as a senior in 2017 after he went 11-0, 0.19 with 158 strikeouts and five walks in 74.1 innings. Many clubs considered Gore the top prospect in the 2017 draft, and the Padres took him with the No. 3 pick and signed him for $6.7 million.

    Scouting Report: An elite athlete with a sky-high leg kick in his delivery, Gore blends his supreme athleticism with an advanced four-pitch arsenal and top-notch competitive makeup. His fastball operates 92-95 mph, plays up thanks to plus command and gets on hitters quickly with good extension out of his delivery. His mid-70s curveball with tight 1-to-7 snap is another plus pitch, and his tumbling 82-85 mph swing-and-miss changeup was even better than expected after signing. His low-80s short slider gives him another potential plus offering. Many evaluators who saw Gore in his pro debut called him one of the best pitching prospects in 30-year history of the Rookie-level Arizona League.

    The Future: Gore shares physical similarities with Cole Hamels, with the potential stuff and control to match. He will head to low Class A Fort Wayne in 2018.

    Robert will be joining a crowded outfield in Houston so Altherr available for an upcoming pick.

    Like that trade for the Twins, though Robles could be nice.

    I was curious about Castro's involvement in that trade, leaves you without a 2B and Baltimore already had a good one. Seems like a good deal either way

    I thought about waiting. To see how many people I'd piss off.

    Track Record: The Brewers selected Hiura ninth overall in 2017 despite the fact he didn't play an inning in the field as a college junior. A partial tear in his right elbow limited him to DH. One of the most productive college hitters of recent memory, he led Division I with a .442 average and signed for a below-slot $4 million. Hiura completed a throwing program while in the Rookie-level Arizona League, then hit .333 at low Class A Wisconsin following a promotion.

    Scouting Report: Hiura has a short, powerful stroke with tremendous bat speed and a good feel for the strike zone. He has explosive, strong hands with raw power that projects to be above-average. He will hit for average and show power to all fields. He is an average runner albeit not a basestealer. He played the outfield and second base in college, and some evaluators think he is destined for left field. The Brewers plan to give Hiura every chance to play second base, and barring any future elbow issues, he certainly has the arm strength to play the position.

    The Future: Hiura was throwing without problems by instructional league, and his advanced hitting ability should put him on the fast track to Milwaukee.
