In about three hours, Owen Caissie turns 20. For today, though, he is still a 19-year-old prospect who has been raking for the last two months in High-A. That’s pretty special.

Like Brad says, that’s a really special young bat. I know there are questions about the glove, and there was that brutally bad April. But he is very young for his level, and he’s crushing the ball. Few in the system can hit it like Caissie can.
