Yasmani is how he shows up on Cuban sites and I believe that is his proper given name. The change to a "y" has occurred recently on all the major baseball sites. Whether it is a change that Tomas made/requested or simply a change made to North Americanize his name, I don't know. I think either could deemed to be correct at this stage of the game Peter.

Yasmani or Yasmany? mlb.com seems to be going with the latter, which is how I'm leaning in the Guide. Is there a reason for Yasmani?

Keith Law says he's "a below-average runner with a stiff body."

He basically agrees with Buck. But that's still enough, in a year when the pickings are slim, to put him in the top ten on Keith's free agent list.

Does he run at all?  Even 5 SB.

So far, I see a hitter that should fall somewhere between Dayan Viciedo and Yoenis Cespedes: plus power, below-average plate discipline and marginal defensively. I don't think he's as athletic as Puig, and he certainly doesn't have Abreu's batting eye. Could he hit 30 homers? Absolutely...but what are you willing to pay insofar as batting average / OBP? I can't imagine him hitting much over .250-.260 from what I've seen...which, granted, isn't a lot...and I would not be surprised to see him end up in the Incaviglia Zone.

This quote is from Peter C. Bjarkman, one of the leading authorities on Cuban baseball. "$100 million? ... not quite ... this is of course a lot of money to
commit for a "human strikeout machine" ... if Tomas even comes close to
succeeding in the fashion of Abreu, Castillo or Soler it will definitely
display just how strong (even remarkable) the Cuban League actually is
.."

NL bound.  At some point one of these guys has to flop right?

A good review of Tomas by Ben Badler and video clip of that reported 70 Grade power from the last WBC. This kid can hit them a mile.

Tomas has a showcase set up for this Sunday in the Dominican. By Sunday evening the reports should be flowing in. The rumour mill currently has the Phillies as being very interested and the contract to be a record breaking deal, possibly as high as a $100 million.
