    Well sure, moving up from obscurity to "maybe kind of worth keeping the corner of the eye on"

    First year of pro ball and he's improving, was drafted this past year in the 3rd round, he's certainly a guy to keep an eye on, prospectslive has him ranked 9th as Jim just posted above?

    John_Havok looks to giving Palmer the Keith Law Cavan Biggio is not a prospect treatment.

    Trent Palmer hasn't given up a single HR all season (in 63 IP) and has allowed just 33 hits with 83 strikeouts. It's pretty overpowering stuff by those metrics (and his pre-draft scouting reports) with control being the only obvious issue. He is a real prospect and we actually went slightly over-slot to sign him out of the 3rd round last season (he also had promising advanced metrics in college IIRC). This isn't a random prospect. His control has been a lot better in the 2nd half of the season.

    Cool.

    No Moreno, Martinez or Groshans has made prospect watching fairly dull.

    Can someone explain the risk assessment for prospects on Fangraphs? There are so many high risk players and the only player with "low" risk on the first page (aside from Detmers) is Volpe? I mean Witt Jr. and Julio Rodriquez are considered "high" risk, and ranked higher than Volpe. This is his breakout season and is only in A+. Rodriguez is in AA at the same age with a longer track record. Is it a Yankees thing?

    Usually if a position prospect is elite defensively, the low risk label is assigned, or if a pitcher has a quality arsenal with good control/command, low risk is assigned.

    I wasn't aware of Volpe being ellite defensively, Peraza is better defensively within the Yanks org and is medium risk despite between 1 yr older and two levels higher. Low risk for Volpe is a ???
