NEW YORK a Watch Yankees manager Aaron Boone give his scouting repot on top prospect Gleyber Torres , whom the team called up for the first time before Sunday’s game against the Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium.
Baseball America ranks Torres the games’ No. 6 overall prospect. MLB.com had him at No. 5.
Tuukka Rask, Bruins goalie: We had a great run after that game, and that win started it. [The Bruins lost in the 2013 Stanley Cup Final to the Chicago Blackhawks.]
Reimer: Any time you fail, you take something out of it. For myself, it was to just keep trusting your game, no matter the score or the time of the game. Don’t try to be a hero. Just stick to what you do.
“The two easiest quarterback evaluations I’ve had in the last 8-10 years are Andrew Luck and Carson Wentz ,” Mayock said. “That’s because everything checked off both on the film and all the intangibles. Those two guys walked and talked like Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Russell Wilson, etc. I don’t see anybody in this class that I get the same gut feeling for as those two.”
Luck left Stanford as one of the most highly-touted quarterback prospects in recent memory after a stellar collegiate career, and he was continuing that success in the NFL before missing the entire 2017 season with a shoulder injury.
Wentz was — and is — a physical specimen coming out of college wit a 6-foot-5, 237-pound frame and top-level arm talent and athleticism for a quarterback prospect. It wasn’t quite the same consensus as Luck was, though, as Wentz had a history of injuries and played at the FCS level. The Rams traded up to pick Jared Goff over him.
As for the 2018 prospects , Mayock is a little less sure. Here’s specifically what he said about Darnold, Allen, Rosen, Mayfield and Jackson as it relates to the Wentz/Luck comparison.
