I'm interested in the 16 year old 6'4" CF batting 2nd. Stiven Acevedo.

Is that based on his size @Luke-OH or have you seen some video of him?

I'm guessing it is a combination of the size, age, and position.

Sixteen and 6'4" in center are eye catching numbers.

Size and age plus the fact that he's batting 2nd and playing CF.

Maybe Elias figures they need taller outfielders to rob a few home runs?

I haven't seen any of the DSL dudes and probably won't unless they make it stateside. Pretty much what COC and Art said.

At 16 he might not be done yet.

I'm pretty ignorant of the international side of things. I was wondering why you never hear about any pitchers coming from there. I think the Yankees actually have a lot of flame throwers from there though, and obviously Severino. I guess it's just more rare, I wonder what the Yankees are doing differently.

$$$ and brand recognition will get you the best of the best if you want it bad enough.

I updated the second post in this thread. Should be a complete list of active international signings. Does not include players signed by other clubs first.

FWIW, Koby Perez was hired 1/2/19.    Might be worth noting on your chart.   Looks like we signed 2 guys after Elias was hired but before Perez was hired.    Have to wonder if those two were in the works before Elias arrived, as I can’t imagine he was doing anything on the international front other than looking for an international scouting director.
