The Jed Lowrie Mark Melancon deal is looking like a steal for Jeff Luhnow.
Still, Correa is the main attraction for scouts at the event, and he did not disappoint. In his first game, Correa went 2-for-3 with two home runs. The hitters are using metal bats and the first home run was a mammoth shot to left field, probably about 375 feet. The second home run came on a hanging curveball and was more of a line drive about 350 feet, also to left field.
"I feel great. That was a great game for me," Correa said. "I feel comfortable, I feel good, I feel healthy, so that's good. I dreamt it would be like this, so it's like a dream come true. I love it . . . It feels good to be in front of the scouts. There's a lot of scouts here in Puerto Rico coming from the USA, so it feels good that they came to see every Puerto Rican player."
