Astros Minor League Recap

As we all know, it's difficult to get first hand reports of almost all minor league players.  Fortunately, minor leagues are getting more and more popular, and fans are using the internet to share their experience.  This has some good and bad points as we don't always know just how good of sources these guys are, but at the same time, often times, they are all we have. 

This year we have gained two sources who are actually reliable.  I've mentioned the first before in @TCVfan, he takes very detailed notes of the games and has been watching this organization for years and has a very firm grasp of the typical talent that goes through.  So, when he sees a guy standout, he stands out.

Another one that I want to mention is David Gershman.  He posted a fanshot of his report of Juri Perez a week or so ago, but I'm going to start linking to his reports as they post.  Gershman is a very respected writer and is even a writer for the sabermetrics based blog, Beyond the Box Score, here at SB Nation. 

He posted a report on Justin Gominsky yesterday after he was able to get a look at him and the rest of the Tri-City ValleyCats recently.  It's definitely a positive report and I like that, despite his age and college experience, is still pretty raw and has untapped talent.  Although, he's not overly complementary of his defense, which is understandable as that is something that requires a lot of scouting to get a real good feel for, and TCVfan seems to like his defense.  Gominsky is for sure one to watch and could actually become a very interesting prospect.
