you beat me to it.

Although Soler was injured a lot, pretty much right away. But man, that does look like Jorge.

He's at least 21. He is not old by any means, but he is probably older than what is listed.

Could (Should) be a beast though.

I'm excited for him and for White Sox fans. I hope he works out.

20 y.o. and hitting bombs with as smooth of a right-handed swing as you'll see. He is a generational talent.

Chronic injuries, poor attitude and marginal defensive skills(outside of a strong) arm to complement his game.

This isn't a thread about talk about Kyle Schwarber.

As the Oracle of Cub forums, can you point me to the Schwarber discussion?

Eloy is an odd name. Let's make it Elroy.

He looks like him in the outfield especially. Does not take great routes on fly balls. But hitting-wise, he is better. He does have a bit longer swing than ideal, which results in more strikeouts than might be desired. But he can rake.

2-4 with a double tonight. 1.427 OPS in 22 AB's in winter league action.

He'd be in the lineup opening day if there were no service time concerns.

Another homer for Jimenez, showing big power to the opposite field. Slashing .395/.415/.763 in winter league play.
