where are they now?

Outfielder Chad Hermansen ranked as the Pirates’ No. 1 prospect in 1999 and 2000 on the strength of his power-speed résumé up through Triple-A. The 10th overall pick in 1995 never lived up to his amateur or minor league promise in the major leagues, hitting just .195 in parts of six seasons.Chad Hermansen’s son is getting to the age where he can understand what dad’s professional baseball career was all about.“At your best, who do you think is the type of player you could have been?” Callen, 16, asked during the AL Championship Series.“From a tools perspective,” Chad responded, “I probably had the upside of a Ryan Braun-type player.

Max Muncy, 1B/2B, DodgersMuncy quickly became one of the Dodgers’ best hitters in 2018.2. Josh James, RHP, AstrosJames fixed a sleep apnea problem, added 5 mph to his fastball and made it onto…

Projected Future Grades On 20-80 Scouting Scale HIT: 50. POWER: 70. SPEED: 40. FIELD: 60. ARM: 70.(MIKE JANES/FOUR SEAM;)1. AUSTIN RILEY, 3BBORN: April 2, 1997. B-T: R-R. HT.: 6-2. WT.: 220. DRAFTED: HS—Southaven, Miss., 2015 (1st supp). SIGNED BY: Don Thomas.TRACK RECORD: In high school, Riley was a thick-bodied, strong-armed pitcher/third baseman. Because of Riley’s thick trunk and arm strength, most scouts viewed him as a pitching prospect, and he would have played both ways if he had made it to Mississippi State.

As a result, he has slimmed down and is now markedly more athletic and nimble. After hitting…
