Half of his pre-season profile on TdA was about his injury history, so it's no surprise that he'd drop him heavily after one more significant one.

There is an also considered section at the bottom. 


Also considered: Robert Stephenson, RHP (Cincinnati Reds); Yasiel Puig, OF (Los Angeles Dodgers); Billy Hamilton, CF (Cincinnati Reds); Tyler Skaggs, LHP (Arizona Diamondbacks); Corey Seager, IF (Los Angeles Dodgers).


He had Syndegaard around 75 in the preseason.  I wonder when he will change his tune.

Has Law ever changed his tune on anything?

yeah we're going to be sorry for passing on Seager imo.

No, he is a smarmy d-bag.   He claims Syndegaard is headed for the BP, but he said the same of Harvey when he was drafted.

Everyone misses a few but he comes off as really unlikeable.

Addison Russell is hitting .210 in A ball FWIW. Buxton is a beast but he's still in low A ball right now. Had no idea how much Cecchini's brother was rising (even though it's silly for him to be on a top 25 list) but he's probably a consensus top 50-100 at this point, it'd trade brothers in a new york minute. As far as TDA goes, I have no problem dropping him out of the top 25, he's a huge ? at this point. He'll be going into his age 25 season with major injury questions and little if any ML experience. I'm sure that's how Keith Law is looking at it.

Between the two Jays pitchers the Mets were linked to, he still has Aaron Sanchez way ahead of Syndergaard. I'm starting to wonder if other scouts were feeling the same.

BA, MiLB and Sickels all had Gaardy higher, plus he's got better stats this year and Sanchez is on the DL.
