Future Milwaukee Brewer Keston Hiura has been named the best second base prospect in baseball by MLB Pipeline.Of the ten prospects on the list , Hiura stands out for having the top hit and power rankings of the bunch. His 70-grade hit tool is tied for Luis Urias, while no one else matches his 60-grade power.While the Brewers’ top prospect grades out exceptionally for his hit and power tools, he has just a 50-grade for his run and fielding grade, and a 45 for his arm. Pipeline showers Hiura’s ability with praise, saying that:Hiura’s grades are humongous praise from the evaluators at Pipeline. There are likely less than five prospects is baseball with a 70 hit tool based on their evaluation, and maybe half of those have a 60 or better power. Based on those grades, Hiura should end up as a top-15 prospect.There was also a former Brewers prospect on the list for top second baseman. Isan Diaz slotted in at number 10. Diaz was a crucial part of last year’s deal to acquire Christian Yelich. 2019 could be a crucial year for The Third Prospect"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Scaling the RocksPebble ReportRockpileRockies Game ThreadsRockies Fan ExperienceRockies Minor Leagues and ProspectsColorado Rockies prospect rankings: No. 12, Jesus TinocoNew,15comments2019 could be a crucial year for The Third ProspectMSTShareTweetShareShareColorado Rockies prospect rankings: No. 12, Jesus Tinoco12. Jesus Tinoco (486 points, 32 ballots)Jesus Tinoco’s position as the third piece of the return in the 2015 Troy Tulowitzki trade over three years ago is still, for many PuRPs voters, the defining facet of his prospect status. For others Darin Erstad Jersey , it was Tinoco’s 40 man roster appointment after the 2017 season or his Futures Game nod during 2018. Whatever the reason, the Venezuelan righty is a player who PuRPs voters have been watching for quite some time.Mid-season Ra back-end starter/middle relieverContract Sta 2015 Trade (TOR), 40 Man Roster, 2 options remainingMLB ET s been a smooth ride for Tinoco. After a lights-out performance post-trade with Asheville in 2015, Tinoco struggled mightily in a 2016 High A stint and also in a return trip to Asheville after he was demoted. The 6’4” hurler lost his mechanics and was completely out of whack to the point that the Rockies left him unprotected from the Rule 5 draft. After going un-selected, Tinoco re-dedicated himself to rebuilding his delivery and found success in a return engagement to High A in 2017 to the point where the Rockies felt he was worthy of a 40 man slot at the end of the year. Indeed, from August on, Tinoco had a 3.03 ERA with 43 strikeouts in 38 2鈦? innings.In 2018, Tinoco finally got the bump up to Double-A, where he was 1.4 years younger on average than hitters in the Eastern League. Tinoco made 26 starts with Hartford, amassing 141 innings while compiling 132 strikeouts (8.4 K/9) against 38 walks (2.4 BB/9), both significant improvements over the prior year. Moreover , while Tinoco’s 4.79 ERA hardly stands out, his 3.78 xFIP indicates that he was a bit unfortunate to receive the results he did at the level. As he did in 2017, Tinoco finished strong with a 2.95 ERA over 7 starts and 36 IP in August and September, striking out 36 while walking just 8 in the process.Tinoco followed up his Double-A campaign with a stint in the elite Arizona Fall League. In the AFL, he pitched in a relief role, adding 15 2鈦? frames in 10 appearances. Tinoco struck out 14 against 6 walks en route to a 1.72 ERA and 1.09 WHIP to put a coda on his 2018 campaign.Here’s some video of Tinoco from the AFL courtesy of 2080 Baseball:Accompanying the above video is this report on Tinoco by 2080’s Adam McInturff. The report is well worth reading in its entirety as it provides a wide variety of nuggets on each of Tinoco’s offerings (he’s more negative on the curveball than I’ve seen elsewhere) and other relevant traits, but here’s the conclusion:For additional video and a scouting report on Tinoco from 2017, Bobby DeMuro of Baseball Census has you covered. Here’s his conclusion from that time:Tinoco didn’t make the FanGraphs top Rockies prospect list back in May 2018, but Eric Longenhagen had this blurb on him in July 2018:Tinoco currently ranks 20th in the system according to the above evaluation is the 60 fastball grade, paired with 55 grades on his slider and curveball. That’s already a strong start on a great relief profile, but if Tinoco can improve the changeup and control he’d be a viable starter (and thus more valuable), which separates the 23-year old from most of the other comparable relief arms you’ve seen so far in the PuRPs list. If he’s a reliever (and the scouts seem overwhelmingly to think that’s what he’ll be), Tinoco doesn’t have the pure standout fastball of some of his competitors Shohei Ohtani Jersey , but his strong secondary offerings make him a tough opponent for opposing hitters, perhaps in a multi-inning role.In the crowded field of potential starters in or near the Colorado rotation, Tinoco falls near the bottom at present. His 40 man roster spot makes a call-up an easy procedural move, but Tinoco is still on the fringes of that picture and a candidate for DFA should a better option come along. On the reliever front, Tinoco faces a similarly daunting slate of challengers for bullpen spots but also is a more competitive candidate in that arena. His option clock is now ticking, which will increase Colorado’s urgency to see what they have in Tinoco against more advanced competition, likely Triple-A to begin the year with a cup of coffee with the Rockies possible later in 2019. In the end, the stuff, potential rotation utility, and proximity led me to rank Tinoco 13th in the system with a 40 Future Value grade.

The 2018 NFL Draft was one with a ton of talent
Tyler O’Neill thought about it for brief moment.
