Did others see this? First hand scouting notes on Rosario, Sano, and Satana.

Thanks for the link. Nice little write-up and interesting to see some national attention for Santana. It's unfortunate that Hulet didn't get to see Rosario's D at all and not enough to write-up Santana's. I would have really liked to read about Santana's defense at short as he's got a lot of errors, but that is not always that informative.

Another highlight from the article that I saw was Rosario's nearly identical splits in OPS against righties and lefties. I hadn't ever looked at his splits. It is very encouraging to see him handling lefties well.

Just looked at Rosario's stats on milb - His OPS is actually much better against lefties at the AA level (FtM numbers not included).
.841 vs lefties
.758 vs righties
