From Gene Wojciechowski’s fun “Scouts had some unique takes on baseball’s stars” feature today at ESPN.com…a scouting report on a current Yankee, back when he was in High School:
“A super-nice kid. Homebody type. Very smart, wants to study medicine. Loves a challenge. Wants to be up in tough situations. Plays with fun. Teammates love him.”
“This player will be complete. Like not only physical tools, but the way he plays the game. This guy is a ballplayer. Ball jumps off bat. Has speed. Can throw and field. Nothing not to like.”
No, it’s not Carl Pavano.
