Scouting Austin Romine & DJ Mitchell


Adam Guttridge took a trip down to Tampa for THT, taking a look at two of the Yankees’ better prospects: Austin Romine & DJ Mitchell. Guttridge notes that Romine is “well-composed at the plate” but a “mixed picture” on defense. Mitchell was sitting high-80′s with the sinker, had good control of his slider, and flashed a promising changeup. Check it out, it’s a nice quick read. (h/t dan)

    I’m a little upset that Mitchell sits high 80′s. I thought that he was a 90-92 guy with great sink.

    I know this is extremely off topic, but RIP Michael Jackson.

  3. Ivan says:

    R.I.P Michael Jackson.

    Im just stun right now. We all grew up watching this man.

  4. MattB says:

    When Romine was drafted, wasn’t the book on him that he was very good defensively and average offensively? Guttridge’s comments seem to be antithetical to that, but in line with what’s been showing up in DotF this year. So what’s the real story with Romine?

  5. Henry says:

    High 80′s isn’t a pro prospect.

    Saw this a couple days ago, definitely some interesting stuff.
