    What’s with this 17 yr old Jorge kid that has 1.048 OPS with 25 SB and 10 3B in 172 PAs?

    Doug, lots of triples and steals on the dsl reds. What’s going on down there?

    • Doug Gray

      For the most part you’re looking at high school senior level baseball.

    Ok, we would say that it is better to wait for this guys (Jorge for instance) reaching, at least, A level so we may talking about their upsides in a more accurate approach… isn’t it?

    • Doug Gray

      Upside? No. Upside is upside is upside. It’s there whether you are in the DSL or in Triple-A. Likelihood of reaching it? That’s a very different question and answer.

      • RedsGettingBetter

        Ok Doug, I mean if Jorge goes to A level next season and he’s capable of hitting 10 triples and has an 1.000 OPS again so we could talk about Jorge in that moment as a very impressive prospect looking for a top 100 spot

      • Doug Gray

        Yeah, if that’s the kind of dude he is then he’s going to vault up prospect lists like crazy. That said, I’d be a bit shocked if he did that. Odds are he’ll begin 2022 in the ACL, so even if he goes the Elly De La Cruz route and hits his way out of there with a quickness, he’ll probably have a tough time making a run at 10 triples in A-ball just because of a lack of time to accumulate those kinds of counting stats.

        I’m looking forward to talking to people about him soon, though. Waiting for the year to end to start trying to do more of a deep dive on the DSL kids.

        So DSL is a level below ACL (which is equivalent to Billings of yore?)

        Any thoughts or observations ahead on the restructuring of MiLB and it’s impact on levels of play since there were less players (higher talent level?)

      • Doug Gray

        DSL is below the ACL. Exactly what the comparison is from years past to this year…. That’s really tough to say. The elimination of the advanced rookie level teams kind of messes things up for both the complex level and the A-ball level.

        If I had to guess, I’d say that the ACL is probably still a tad bit lower of a playing level than the Pioneer League (where Billings was), even with the backlog of talent. But it’s certainly possible I’m wrong on that.
