Prospect Video: Cumberland, Carvajal

San Diego Padres prospects Drew Cumberland and Yefri Cravajal have had their issues. Cumberland has struggled to stay healthy, despite putting up solid numbers. Carvajal has not met expectations.

Drew Cumberland is a gritty player and that has hurt him quite literally at times. He goes all out on each play and is susceptible to injury as a result. While some of the maladies have been simply bad luck, others have not. When he is on the field, Cumberland brings a lot of excitement because of his plus speed. He also has a great eye and can put the bat to ball.

Yefri Carvajal has struggled to take the pitch selection he has shown in successive Instructional Leagues into the season. He can get a little long with his swing and by swinging at balls outside of the zone, the outfielder has not been able to tap into his considerable power.
