Give the front office props for again leaving no stone unturned. Who knows, maybe in 7,8 years we'll have something.

I like this. A guy who is speedy, who is so short that his strike zone is practically nonexistent. Could be interesting if he can hit.

Sounds decent. I don't know if he will ever make it to the majors though. When the scouts came and when i went to the camps in my junior year they pretty much said i was undersized and i was bigger than this kid. I was 5'8" 175 pounds then.
I don't understand how this kid isn't considered "undersized".

Perhaps that's why he's only getting $30k.
