Prospect of the Day:  OF Elvis Rubio (AZL Brewers)

The Brewers signed Rubio as a 17-year-old international free agent in 2011. He received a modest $95,000 bonus and was thought to be a potential power bat at a corner outfield position. Although young international free agents are often supremely raw, it was surprising to see Rubio hit a combined .220/.337/.302 with three home runs in his first two seasons as a professional in the Dominican Summer League.

He made his stateside debut this year with the AZL club, and he’s been a completely different hitter. In his first 12 games in the Arizona League, he has more home runs (4) than he had in his first two seasons combined (3). He’s hitting .382/.533/.765 and is looking every bit the part of a potential power corner outfielder.

Of course, it’s an obscenely small sample size. I also once had a scout tell me that he couldn’t care less what a guy does statistically until he reaches full-season ball, so I’ve been trying to learn to take rookie-league statistics with a massive grain of salt. It’s always been easy to dismiss gaudy rookie-league statistics from non-prospects. However, trying to temper excitement around a legitimate prospect’s quick start in the Arizona League or Pioneer League is much more difficult.

Still, it’s encouraging to see Elvis Rubio turn it around so dramatically in the states. Let’s hope we hear some positive scouting reports on him this summer, as reports about his overall skill set will be much more informative than simply looking at his day-to-day performance.

    Man what’s a guy gotta do to be the POD?

    • dBug says: July 10, 2013

      Complete game 2-hitters are so common for this organization, you can’t expect it to draw any attention, right?

      • J.P. Breen says: July 11, 2013

        It was only a seven-inning game, and there have been plenty of Brewers pitchers who have accomplished that this season. I simply chose to focus on an under-the-radar outfielder in rookie ball who went 3-for-4 with two bombs. That’s pretty good, too.

        • dBug says: July 11, 2013

          Just teasing. Kind of funny coming the same day as the big league club breaks through for their first CG in 400+ days.

  2. Mathdude says: July 9, 2013

    I’d also like to hear more about Mangum. I admit I don’t know much about the guy, but any time you can come in and get 15 outs in a row with 5 K’s and no BB’s, you got my attention. Is he a hard thrower?

    how about the 4 innings of 1 hit ball from Oshkosh north/ Milwaukee panther pitcher josh uhen?
