Here's what Mets amateur scouting director Tommy Tanous said about Florida 1B Peter Alonso, whom the Mets selected in the second round: "This is one of the better power hitters in the country. The trick with the power hitter is: Is he going to hit enough to get to that power? Peter also is a very good hitter -- his knowledge of the strike zone, his ability to attack a baseball, his path is fairly short from his swing. He's a bigger guy with a shorter swing. And it usually translates into success. So mechanically we felt he was really sound. Physically this is a really strong man. Florida is not the easiest place to hit balls out of. I think he hit 12 home runs this year. He led the No. 1 team in the country in hitting. This is a force, but he's also a well-rounded hitter."

- Rubin

Reminds me of the rationalizations we saw for David Thompson.

Point is that this is a guy you wait for the 4th or 5th rd to draft. Looks too unathletic to pop this high IMO. You can't box yourself into a corner defensively this high in the draft and they continue to do this.

But, when it all comes together...

Alonso got dominated by Keegan Akin in the 5/27 game against Bowie, obviously not a big deal cause bad days happen and Akin is one of my most underrated hurlers in the minors.... so more importantly in my viewing was that he looked much lighter on his feet than I expected. Made a nice olay play from a knee on a sharp grounder down the line, a nice scoop on a bounced throw, good pick and toss to a covering pitcher (james?), and a chopper that he handled routinely while heading for first in a smooth motion.

Overall, this is nothing like a righty Duda. Not nearly as big, a more adequate defender, and better hit tool.

Duda was always fine playing 1B, so I don't know how to take that he's "more adequate" than Duda. Based on reports (which are usually just wrong), Alonso being more or less the equivalent of Duda at 1B would be a bonus if the stick is as good as it seems to be.

Have to disagree here. Lucas worked very hard to get better, but he was not an average defensive 1B IMO. whereas I think Alonso should be.

Regardless of how much he worked at, Duda was fine at 1B... better than many thought he would be. I don't doubt the same for Alonso. Have to take many of these 'minor league reports' with a large grain of salt.

Hmm...I was wrong. He seems like a legitimate possibility.

I find this talk about Kelenic comical. He's a 19 year old kid who hit .253 at Kingsport
and struck out once a game and people are talking like he's the second coming. Get real people. When you have a chance to get the best reliever in the game who's only 24 and give up Kelenic in the deal, you MAKE that deal. Stop with the nonsense.
