    Pereira hit his 17th HR in 159 ABs tonight.

    Comment


      Macejewski threw a good one here in HV. Topping out at 93. Perez looking good as well. Chapparo hit two dingers one over 425. Also a triple

            They should jump OP to AAA. Glove already MLB ready.

              I'm thinking he'll get a full season in Scranton and some call-ups in 2022. I am hoping he's the real thing and will get a chance to be an everyday SS for the Yankees in 2023.

              It's been fun watching him (albeit from a distance) succeed/progress this season. He should end the season on a high note in Somerset, IMO, and let him savor the good taste in his mouth.

                  Wells and Chapparo go back to back in HV to bail out Sauer’s first inning mess.

                      Both, BA and MLB Pipeline need to revise their current evaluation of Pereira. They need to remember that both of them in 2017, had Pereira rated the MLB's #4 International prospect signed that year at 1.5M bonus money. That was the largest bonus the Yankees gave out that year. Also, in BA's 2019 Prospect Handbook they had Pereira rated as the Yankees 3rd best prospect behind Florial and Loaisiga. His 2019 season was derailed with foot and hamstring injuries that limited him to 18 games. No minor leagues in 2020, didn't help him.

                      One more thing, Volpe and Periera were born the same month and year with Pereira only 18 days older.

                      It's funny how BA and Pipeline will still rate some prospects high after iinjuries, but seem to disregard other prospects that had one such season like Pereira.

                        BA's current top 30 write up with Pereira ranked as Yankees #18 prospect:

                        18. Everson Pereira | OF

                        Born: Apr 10, 2001
                        Bats: R Throws: R
                        Ht.: 5'10" Wt.: 191
                        Drafted/Signed: Venezuela, 2017.
                        Signed By: Roney Calderon.
                        Minors: .313/.411/.693 | 17 HR | 9 SB | 163 AB

                        TRACK RECORD: The Yankees spent big money on their 2017 international class, including $1.5 million on Pereira, who jumped over the Dominican Summer League in favor of a stateside pro debut at Rookielevel Pulaski. He played there all season as a 17-year-old and ranked No. 7 among the league's Top 20 prospects. His 2019 season, spent in the New York-Penn League, was cut short by a severely sprained ankle.

                        SCOUTING REPORT: Like many Venezuelans, Pereira was stuck in the U.S. once the novel coronavirus pandemic shut down the sport. Instead, he's been training in Orlando, Fla. Though his numbers weren't impressive in his first two seasons, the Yankees were heartened by Pereira's above-average bat speed and exit velocities. Now, he needs to get more experience against quality breaking balls. He's got above-average speed and instincts, which helps him both in the outfield and on the bases.

                        THE FUTURE: The 2021 season will be doubly important for Pereira. Because he will be eligible for the Rule 5 Draft, the Yankees will need to decide whether he's worthy of 40-man protection. He has the upside of an everyday center fielder, but there's a long way to go.



                        MLB Pipeline's current top 30 write up with Pereira ranked as Yankees #13 prospect:

                        Everson
                        Pereira
                        OF, Hudson Valley Renegades, A+

                        Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 50 | Run: 55 | Arm: 55 | Field: 60 | Overall: 45

                        After two years in the international-spending penalty box, the Yankees faced no restrictions in 2017 and handed seven-figure bonuses to four position players, including $1.5 million for Pereira. The Venezuelan was the youngest regular (age 17) in the Rookie-level Appalachian League when he made his pro debut in 2018, and he would have been the youngest in the short-season New York-Penn League the next summer if hamstring and foot injuries hadn't limited him to 18 games. The Yankees have pushed him because he was considered extremely advanced for his age, but he batted just .236/.292/.350 in his first two pro seasons.

                        Pereira's performance and 33-percent strikeout rate reflect his youth and facing much older pitchers rather than his true hitting ability. He has the hand-eye coordination and quick right-handed swing to produce line drives to all fields. He has gotten stronger since signing, checking in at 200 pounds at New York's Dominican instructional league program last fall, and he could develop average power if he adds more loft to his stroke and pulls more pitches.

                        As Pereira has added muscle he has also slowed a bit, though he's still a solid runner. He's learning the nuances of basestealing and his instincts help him cover ground in center field. He also has solid arm strength and is capable of playing all three outfield spots.

                          For those of us that weren't unaware of, or simply forgot about him as a prospect, the Yankees need to protect Pereira on their 40 man roster this winter. He's coming into his own at 20 years old with hit skills not shown by many other International power hitters in the Yankees system.

                          By the way, more than a few of our Venezuelan prospects made some serious strides this minor league season. I wonder if it's because they were stuck here in the States during the pandemic as many of them are a lot stronger now with better power numbers than they ever shown beforehand.

                            Does anybody know if Pereira's homers are mostly off fastballs or if he's also making hard contact on breaking pitches.

                              You have to protect Pereira. I can't see him not being grabbed in the Rule 5 draft and sticking in the majors.

                                IMO, that is the key stat for Medina. Everything else will follow if he can limit the walks.
