It used to be free back when Kris Bryant and Jorge Soler were playing for Mesa.

It's only 17 PA but he's got a 1.314 OPS thus far.

Dude just might be going Gleyber on the AFL.

Some praise for Amaya today from MLB.com in their AFL tools roundup:

Best defender: Miguel Amaya, C, Cubs

More athletic than most catchers, Amaya is an advanced receiver for a 20-year-old and projects as a plus defender when he's fully developed. He also enhances solid arm strength with a quick release and could be at least an average hitter with power to match.

Extremely hot AFL take: Amaya impressed me more than Jo Adell

Amaya's size is really impressive even compared to the other players, including Adell. He's bigger than Contreras was in the AFL and I think Contreras was a good 2-3 years older. It's not an unathletic or stiff frame either. Another noticeable thing between he and Contreras in the AFL is how little he moves around defensively. I remember Contreras' defense in the AFL was a show onto itself, whereas Amaya's way more quiet and casual

Nice to see some love for the frame, seems like Amaya looks more like a beast everytime someone puts out a new clip and this one is no different. Hands down the best prospect in this system - ideal frame for the position, nice and wide potential skillset, crazy young, keeps getting better...

Miguel Amaya | POS: C | ORG: CHC | AFL: Mesa Solar Sox | Tools: HIT- 50 RAW- 60 RUN- 30 GLOVE- 60 ARM- 60

One of the players I was most impressed with during my time in Arizona. Amaya has three plus tools in the bag in the raw power, defensive ability and arm. He’s a physically mature 20-year old that will be a franchise catcher with time. His hands are quick and strong, and he has zero issues generating natural loft. Amaya’s Fall Stars BP was one of the best during the event, and he was going blow for blow with Adell, and routinely besting him by 15-20 feet. Defensively his feet are quick, and he stays quiet behind the dish and displays good lateral quickness. The arm is a weapon, and he will stop the running game before it even gets started with pop times consistently around two seconds. He’s adept at blocking pitches, and is athletic even with the solid frame. With the strikeouts and walk rates headed in the right direction, now seems to be a good time to get excited about Amaya. He’s the Cubs top prospect in my mind. First division catcher.

Bandwagon's filling up fast on Amaya's noticeable physicality and strength gains:



Also also jealous of the Rays' Wander Franco/Vidal Brujan switch hitting duo. Brujan would fit right into this system - 2015 IFA, steady climb with outstanding performances throughout, sneaky good tools, underrated until probably about now if not next year...Pretty classic leadoff hitter type with sneaky power, outstanding plate discipline, high AVG and OBP potential
