It is from Fangraphs' 20-80 scale of "Future Value" tied to anticipated value during the player's first 6 years of service. On the scale, 70-80 are top 10/5 types (there are only two of these on their current list), while 55/60 is above average regular/all-star. Most of the top 20 are 60s, and then it's 55s down to 45th or so on their scouting big board.What does "55 FV tier" mean?
also it appears that Duran heard the concerns about being “pull happy” as it was another opposite field bombAnd Duran with #12, 3 run HR to win the game in the bottom of the 10th.
It would certainly improve the defense.Marcus Wilson

It'd be curious if he made any adjustments at the plate or it's just noise. He's only 21 days older than Duran which seems crazy. He's obviously been a bit lucky this year but he's trending in the right direction. A Marcus Smart who strikes out 25% of the time is a very interesting player.
Wow. I don’t think it’s discussed enough how unusually aggressive of an assignment of A+ ball is for a high school pick’s first cup of tea. Yeah he got some seasoning at the alternate site but still this is very impressive.Nick Yorke 4-6 with a HR. He's at .294/.375/.394 for an OPS of .769 now.
They were aggressive, as he likely would have gone to Lowell when it existed.Wow.

I overreacted to his initial rough patch and thought they may have screwed this up by being too aggressive.
