Yeah, I have beachfront property in Arizona I’m willing to sell you...

I lived in Arizona for a bit, enjoyed it.  Then again it was winter.

But an outfielder!

Not to quibble but that Fangraphs post says he's strictly a first baseman.

Well, now I see a quote saying he's a corner outfielder. So, um, nevermind.

Cespedes was second in the minors in average exit velocity at 96 mph, according to FanGraphs.com lead prospect analyst Eric Longenhagen.

Qualls said Cespedes, who’s primarily a corner outfielder, likely will be assigned to low Single-A Delmarva.

“Cristopher Cespedes had kind of a breakout season,” Qualls said. “He had a .930 OPS. Just a real interesting toolsy kid as a 21-year-old. He still has a couple years of control and we liked a lot of his batted-ball metrics and thought he was a nice addition to our system.”

I would love to move there or move to Texas. 

Spring is fantastic in Texas also. South Texas.

For a reference, Aaron Judge’s avg exit velocity was 95.9mph I’m 2019 (it led MLB). Chris Gittens avg something like 98mph in AA (I referenced that in my Rule 5 preview) to lead the MiLB.
