Reading more about Santana, I like

Quote:
Santana, 18, is a 5’8″ second baseman who has played sparingly at shortstop. Last year, while playing in his second season in the DSL for the DSL Mets2, Sanata hit .325/.430/.481 with 12 doubles, eight triples, three homers, 52 RBI and 16 stolen bases in 65 games. Certainly, those are attention seeking numbers, and those numbers have caught the attention of Badler, who had this to say about the Mets prospect:

" Santana is a tenacious, fiery competitor with a small but strong, bulky build. Santana was one of the most difficult hitters to strike out in the DSL. Santana has a compact swing with great hand-eye coordination to barrel balls consistently. He’s an excellent fastball hitter who takes an aggressive swing but also shows good selectivity at the plate. While Santana isn’t tall, his strength enables him to put a strong charge into the ball, although he will probably always have a hit-over-power profile. Santana is an offensive-minded second baseman who could be an average fielder, with solid-average speed and an average arm. He’s not flashy in the field, but he committed just six errors in 65 games, which is an unusually low total for a DSL middle infielder."
Second straight season he's going to have an OPS above 900

Man next year is gonna be fun with Newton, Vientos, Kelenic, Santana, Mauricio all on the same team

Very generic scouting report there. That’s shit I’d say if I had no clue other than Statlines and measurements on player cards.

Vientos made the BA Hot Sheet this week

Quote:
17. Mark Vientos, 3B, Mets
Team: Rookie-level Kingsport (Appalachian)
Age: 18
Why He’s Here: .375/.500/.833 (9-for-24), 6 R, 2 2B, 3 HR, 11 RBIs, 6 BB, 2 SO

The Scoop: The arrows are pointing in the right direction on Vientos, a 6-foot-4 third baseman whose mix of plate patience, bat speed and power project well at the position. For a long-levered hitter, Vientos doesn’t strike out excessively either, and he could be in line for a breakout once he gets to full-season ball in 2019.

What does the term "long lever" mean? Is that the same as "he's got a long swing"?

I think it just means he has long arms, as his arms are the levers in that analogy. That might make it harder for him to keep his swing short, but I mean, there are a lot of 6'4 big leaguers, so most of them found a way to make it work.
