Len Casper was on the Score today raving about Soler and Baez. Says he hasn't seen any prospect like them in the 9 years he's been doing Cubs games. Said Baez hit a ball yesterday as hard as he's ever seen anyone hit a ball but was actually higher on Soler. Said Soler has the prototype right fielder body with tremendous power (compared him to Cliff Floyd).
Also said BJax's swing is completely different, said it looks like a carbon copy of the swing Rizzo came back with after his failed year in San Diego. Their plan for him is just like Rizzo, absolutely will start in Iowa and if he tears it up, will be called up later in the year.
Mentioned Junior Lake looks good too and will get a lot of play in Iowa this year.
