Went to Auburn-Williamsport last night and there were some standouts and guys that need major work.
Gustavo Pierre: Flashed some monster tools tonight connecting on an opposite field triple and showing his plus speed. Plate Discipline is much better than the previous two times that I've seen him and waited for his pitch a couple of times.
Carlos Perez: Plus Plus Speed for a catcher, can really get down the line. Not a big guy so I don't think he'll be more than a 10-15 HR threat, but showed a good eye at the plate not looking overmatched.
Kelly Dugan: He was the best prospect on the field tonight. He flashed his potential to become an elite hitter with good power. Set up very similar to Jay Bruce, and showed a good eye at the plate not looking to hack away. When he made contact the ball it was scorched off the bat and had that special sound to it. He only went 1-4 but he missed a HR by about five or six feet, and due to Auburn's centerfielder having great range was robbed of two more doubles in the gap. He used all the field as his double was opposite field. He could be a big 2011 breakout for the Phillies.
Domingo Santana: Granted he just turned 18, he should have been in Williamsport all year and played instructional league ball until June. Massive trouble with breaking stuff and was flailing at stuff that was in the dirt in nearly every at bat. He also looks pretty filled out so he might not have as much projection left as people think.
Aaron Altherri: Just disappointed that he didn't play tonight. I wanted to see the tools, because He looked a lot like a younger Domonic Brown and had a very thin build.
Williamsport infield defense: This was some of the most shoddy defense I've ever seen. It looked like a little league team in Williamsport.
