2006 ML Breakout players

I've heard the name Fernando Martinez before from researching the minors and keeping track of them for my dynasty league but, I don't know all that much about him. However, the yankees have a young kid by the name of Jose Tabata who could be a very good outfielder and I think in some ways is a breakout candidate.

Re: Mets Outfielder

He won't have a chance unless Lastings Millege Busts. And scouts have him as one of the quickest bats in the minors right now. He'll take FLoyds place next year after his contract is done.



I said he was in A ball. For being a Mets fan, you must have been living under a rock from last June on. The Mets signed him as a then 16 year old right out of the Dominican. Scouting reports said he was the best pure hitter in years at such a young age. I never trust stuff Gammons makes up, but when he was auditioning for the Bosox, Gammons said his swing reminded him of a young Ted Williams. He is making his pro debut this year for Hagerstown and is more than holding his own. I thought for sure he'd be in rookie ball, but he's proving he can handle it. He's a good 3 years away. Long term I see Milledge in LF, Beltran in CF and the kid in RF or Milledge in RF with Martinez in LF (although he's playing CF for Hagerstown). Look him up, I guarantee you'll be impressed.

As for Tabata, I think Martinez is better and will be ranked higher than Tabata on next year's prospects lists.
The one constant through all the years has been baseball. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again...This field, this game, is a part of our past. It reminds us of all that once was good, and that could be again.

Jeff Larish and Kevin Whelan, both playing for the Tigers' class A+ Lakeland.
Larish may just what the Tigers need: a left handed power bat who will draw a lot of walks. He plays 1B and supposedly has enough athleticism to play a corner outfield spot if necessary. He played some 3B in college, but he is done at 3B.

Whelan he's only a closer prospect, so he won't get tons of recognition, but he could be one of the best closer prospects by the end of the season.

Humberto Sanchez, a starting pitcher for the Tigers' AA affiliate, Erie. He was dominant as a reliever in the AFL. Now he is back as a starter and looking very good. He hasn't shown great results otherwise to this point, but he has the stuff to be very good. His weakness has always been control. Keep an eye on him.

Wow, some pretty good calls here.

Gonzalez, Gallardo, Brignac (out of nowhere!), FMart, Garza, Adenhart.
