This from http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/20 ... yblog.html :

Tuesday, 1:23 PM: Yankees Like Henry's Upside
by John Manuel

Although thought to be a tough sign due to his basketball prowess, C.J. Henry now seems likely to sign despite a commitment to play basketball at Kansas where his father played basketball. Obviously raw due to splitting his time with basketball, Henry has fantastic tools and scouts are excited about his makeup. A shortstop in high school, his future might be in the outfield but Henry is stubborn about wanting stay at shortstop.


Very nice, thanks. Kansas? Wow...

Cesar Carrillo, 21, is ready to start his professional career. The hard-throwing right-hander with a lively mid-90s fastball, plus curveball and effective changeup is draft-eligible and projected to go in the first round.

He'll rise rapidly through an organization, predicts Miami pitching coach J.D. Arteaga, himself a former Miami ace who pitched five seasons in the minor leagues.

"I've told scouts that I've never seen another pitcher in college as close as Carrillo is to the majors," Arteaga says. "Most pitchers have to spend a lot of time in the minor leagues refining their location and command.

"This year, Carrillo has like 16 walks (in 92 innings). He has amazing command of all pitches. (Mark) Prior had similar numbers, and he didn't spend much time in the minors," says Arteaga.

Such pinpoint command and location frustrates hitters and keeps them off balance. Meanwhile, the 6-3 Carrillo, who is generously listed at 177 pounds, looks as menacing as a 500-pound gorilla when he's on the mound and firing 97-mph fastballs.

I really have to question the Rockies with Both Tulo and Nelson now. Tulo has said he won't move to 3B and wants to stay at SS, so where does that leave Nelson .... 2b or CF?

Even though the Yanks passed on some good Boras clients, I like the C.J. Henry pick. He is raw cause he has been a 2 sport player, but he is an amazing athlete with a very high ceiling.

That was my reaction after seeing Craig Hansen go to Boston. God Damnit. I'm going to be seeing this guy in my nightmares for years to come.


That's whom I hoped the 'Yanks would take
