Boise Hawks Scouting Report

I wouldn't worry too much about the writer being disappointed in Candelario. One game is one game, and Candelario's numbers pretty much speak for themselves. His defense at third could be an issue, but if Baez moves over there Candelario won't be prying it away from him anyway.

Also, his description of Paniagua makes me pretty excited about him

A lot of scouts don't like using half grades, either. If this guy is one who just doesn't give 55s or 65s or 75s, then a power grade of 70 would include players just a step down from amazingly-elite.
Soler is right up there with Vogelbach on the power grades, and Baez doesn't project too far behind them.

There were only three teenagers among the 25 top hitters (by OPS), and all three were Boise Hawks. Candelario was 18, and finished 20th. Amaya was 19 and finished third. Marco Hernandez was 19 and finished 23rd. There were four 20 year olds, including Rock Shoulders, who finished 13th. There were five 21 year olds, including Stephen Bruno who finished first at .938. The second-best OPS among qualifiers was .883. The other 13 leaders were 22 or older, and none were Hawks..There were 52 total qualifiers.
Among the other qualifiers, 20 year old Wilson Contreras finished tied for 35th, and 19 year old Darien Martin finished 28th.
Among the nonqualifiers, Vogelbach (age 19) had an OPS of 1.031, way ahead of Bruno and comparable only to Mike Zunino's (age 21) 1.210. Almora (age 18), had an OPS of .738, very close to Candelario's .741.
