Matt Duran Named A Breakout Prospect of 2012

ESPN.com writer Kevin Goldstein named Matt Duran as a breakout prospect of 2012.  He had this to say about him:


"While it's not exactly a baseball hotbed, the Yankees do scout their local area intensely, and a quick drive up I-95 allowed them to find Duran at New Rochelle (N.Y.) High School, selecting him in the fourth round.

He had an impressive debut in the rookie-level Gulf Coast League, batting .301/.365/.506 in 23 games, and the pressure will be on his bat throughout his career, as he's stocky, slow and already labeled by many as a bat-only prospect -- albeit with a potentially impressive bat. "
