2019 Minor league sleepers bronx baseball daily symptoms of herniated lumbar disk

I’ve already gone through my 10 breakout candidates for the season, but the fun doesn’t end there! Those were just the guys I felt were most likely to break out. Below, you’ll find a list of players who are also in position to bust onto the prospect scene. They might not be as likely as the breakout candidates, but I would definitely deem these players as sleepers.

Last year, we saw significant improvement from eight of the 15 players on the list. That’s probably the best I’ve ever done on one of these things. Abiatal Avelino, Pablo Olivares, Daniel Ramos, Anderson Severino, Trey Amburgey, Roansy Contreras, Harold Cortijo, and Jason Lopez all improved estenosis lumbar by varying degrees. Roansy Contreras had a monster year, and I was surprised to not see him on the recent Baseball America top 100.


Harold Cortijo put himself on the map as well.

1. Matt Wivinis – RP, 6-foot-0, 170-pounds, RHP, 25-years-old – Wivinis made it all the way to Double-A this past year, and overall it was a fantastic year. He had 77 K in 56 innings and a 2.41 ERA. The one thing preventing this from being a true breakout campaign though, is that he struggled once he reached Double-A. Wivinis was signed out of the independent leagues because he had a big bump in velocity. He is not hitting the upper 90’s with regularity and has a nasty breaking ball that misses escoliosis lumbar derecha bats. I’m betting that the 4.86 ERA in Double-A was just a small sample size, and in 2019 we are going to see Wivinis blossom even more. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up having a nice career in the majors.

2. Yoendrys Gomez – SP, 6-foot-3, 175-pounds, RHP, 19-years-old – Gomez was a low dollar signing in 2017 who has made tremendous strides hernia discal lumbar in a short time. His velocity has progressed to sit in the low-mid-90’s, and good control. His secondary pitches are improving as well, and in 2018 he finished with a 2.08 ERA and 50 K in 47.2 innings pitched. He had a .177 average against and walked 22 batters on the year. It doesn’t take much imagination to see where this kid could end up if he continues to progress at the rapid rate he did from 2017 until now.

3. Ezequiel Duran – 2B, 5-foot-11, 185-pounds, RHB, 19-years-old – Many, including myself, thought that 2018 would be Duran’s breakout year. He had all the earmarks, including the ability to impact the ball, exit velocity, speed, athleticism, and defensive ability at second base. Unfortunately, he struggled mightily hernia lumbar ejercicios prohibidos in Pulaski, hitting just .201/.251/.311/.562 with four homeruns, eight doubles, two triples, and seven SB. He struck out 65 times and walked just nine times. Duran needs a ton of work on his patience. The Yankees have been working relentlessly with him on this, but the early returns at instructs have not been great. Still, if Duran can rein in the aggressiveness in Spring Training, he could end up starting to show some of that great potential he has. There’s enough talent there that his stock could skyrocket in a hurry if he makes some adjustments in 2019.

4. Nelson Gomez – 3B, 6-foot-1, 220-pounds, RHB, 21-years-old – Once one of, if not the top prospect in his international class, Gomez has had a difficult transition to professional baseball. He even quit baseball halfway hernia de disco lumbar tratamiento into 2017. He returned in 2018 though, and he showed some of the massive potential he once had. He hit just .213/.289/.425/.714, but he had 11 homeruns and 12 doubles in 58 games. At instructs, Gomez is apparently finally in shape and his third base skills have improved vastly. He is hitting the cover off the ball again. Of all the people on this list, he is probably the long shot, but it will be one heck of a story if he turns his career around now.

5. Frank German – SP, 6-foot-2, 195-pounds, RHP, 21-years-old – German dolor lumbar izquierdo cadera has a mid-90’s fastball, curveball, and a changeup. He already had a statistically excellent season in Staten Island in 2018 but threw just 30.1 innings. He had a 2.08 ERA and 41 K : 6 BB. He’s relatively young still for a college draftee. The Yankees got him before it was legal for him to drink alcohol. German has nice spin on the curveball and his fastball dials up to the high 90’s. The changeup is a work in progress, but German has a ton of upside and could fly through the system, especially if the changeup clicks.

6. Miguel ejercicios hernia discal lumbar Yajure – SP, 6-foot-1, 175-pounds, RHP, 20-years-old – Yajure flies under the radar as a pitch-ability guy but he is slowly developing into a “stuff” guy as well. This past season, he had 56 K : 15 BB in 64.2 innings with a 3.9 ERA. The fastball has creeped up to the low-mid-90’s, and his curve/change both have a ton of potential if he can develop some consistency. Given the fact that he is still young and 2018 was just coming off Tommy John Surgery, there could be a lot more left in the tank for this kid. I wouldn’t be surprised if he had a breakout year in 2019.

7. Canaan Smith – OF, 6-foot-0, 215-pounds, RHB, 19-years-old – Canaan had a tough year in Staten Island. By all accounts though, he has a ton of talent. He has power, hitability, patience, and surprising athleticism for his size. It’s tough to come down hard on a teenage playing in Staten Island, so he gets a free pass for 2018. 2019 should be a year where we see improvement in all aspects of his game. If he realizes some of his potential, it should be a nice breakout year for him.

8. Janson Junk – SP, 6-foot-1, 177-pounds, RHP, 23-years-old – Junk had a marvelous escoliosis levoconvexa first full minor league season in 2018. He had a 3.77 ERA, and 71 K : 31 BB in 88.1 innings. He had a .245 average against. He throws the ball quite hard, hitting 95-96 mph on the radar. He has even thrown as hard as 98 mph. His secondary pitches are still a work in progress, but the more innings he gets the more progress he can make with those. To get a guy like him in the 22nd around dolor lumbar derecho tratamiento and for him to have immediate success like this is great. I wouldn’t be surprised if he took another step forward in 2019.

9. Oswald Peraza – SS, 6-foot-0, 176-pounds, RHB, 18-years-old – It’s easy to forget that Peraza is still just 18. He held his own in Pulaski in 2018, with a .250/.333/.321/.655 line and one homerun, three doubles, and two triples. He also stole eight bases in 36 games. Peraza is a plus defender at SS, and he has the potential to develop into a 5-tool player if his power comes around. 2018 was his first year playing under the lights, I suspect that he will take a big leap forward in 2019 now that he has more experience.

10. Pedro Barrios – SP, 6-foot-1, 199-pounds, RHP, 19-years-old – Barrios finished the year with a 3.14 ERA and 52 K : 13 BB in 57.1 innings. Barrios is yet another one of these guys who has had a velocity bump to 95 mph and is now working primarily on developing his secondary pitches. He has the power, but just needs to see improvement with his curveball and changeup. Still just 19-years-old, he has plenty of time radiografia de columna lumbar normal to work out the kinks and push his way up the ladder. He had a nice season in 2018, but this year he could get big innings and really start to get some attention.

11. Alexander Vizcaino – – RHP, 6-foot-2, 160-pounds, 21-years-old – Vizcaino has an electric arm but struggles greatly with command and control. He had a 5.12 ERA and 57 K : 23 BB in 58 innings this year. With a mid-90’s fastball that has reached 97 mph, and a curveball/changeup that have plus potential, he’s a guy who could make an impact down the line. For now he is still raw. This is one of those guys who could become a household name if something clicks. That could be this year.

12. Nolan Martinez – RHP, 6-foot-2, 165-pounds, 20-years-old – Martinez had a nice season in 2018. He only threw 56.1 innings, but he had a 2.72 ERA and had 39 K : 22 BB. His velocity sits in the low-90’s but he has dolor lumbar derecho y pierna slowly improved those numbers each year. He already has the nasty curveball and is just looking to develop that third pitch and increase his power. Scouts still believe that will eventually happen with Martinez. I think it will help to get a full season under his belt in Charleston. If he comes out firing it could be a big breakout for Martinez.

13. Daniel Bies – RHP, 6-foot-8, 245-pounds, 22-years-old – He fared pretty well in his first taste of professional baseball, finishing with a 3.3 ERA and 43 K : 7 BB in 30 innings. He currently sits low-90’s with his fastball and has a curveball and changeup as well. None of his pitches are of the hernia lumbar plus variety, but all are average. One thing that is not average is Bies’ size. He’s huge. With that, I’m sure the Yankees think they can get that velocity up to the upper 90’s. If so, they might just have another beast reliever on their hands. Given the Yankees recent success with increasing velocity, I wouldn’t be surprised if Bies comes to camp throwing mid-90’s and has a big breakout season.

14. JP Sears – LHP, 5-foot-11, 180-pounds, 22-years-old – He was off to a phenomenal start in 2018 when he got hurt and missed the rest of the season. He finished with 54 innings pitched, 54 K : 11 BB, and a .191 average against. His ERA was 2.67. Sears was well on his way to a breakout season prior to the injury. Conventional wisdom suggests operacion de columna lumbar recuperacion that when he returns, he could pick up right where he left off. If he does, the Yankees will have a nice lefty prospect on their hands.

15. Josh Stowers – CF, 6-foot-1, 200-pounds, RHB, 21-years-old – Everything I’ve read about Josh Stowers makes me think he is quite underrated. He has loud tools, especially his speed. His performance in his first season in the short season leagues was impressive. He finished with five homeruns, 15 doubles, and 20 SB in 58 games. He had a .260/.380/.410 hernia discal lumbar tratamiento fisioterapia/.790 line. Scouts think he might have more power in the tank too. 2019 could be a year where Stowers puts himself on the map. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him have a Dom-Thompson Williams type year in Low-A or High-A. As a reminder, Williams had a 20/20 season in 2018. I think Stowers could go 15 HR, 35 SB and I wouldn’t be surprised. If he does, this will be a huge breakout.
