Baseball Prospectus Scouting Notes on Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Zack Wheeler

From Kevin Goldstein on Zack Wheeler:

21 strikeouts in first 15 Double-A innings; scouts say both fastball and breaking ball are missing bats.

From John Perrotto’s “Scouts’ Views” section of his “On the Beat” column¬†on Kirk Nieuwenhuis:

“He’s doesn’t have one great tool, but he’s the type of player who does everything well. He can pop you some home runs, he’ll steal some bases, and he plays a decent center field, though I like more on a corner. He plays hard and he’s fundamentally sound, and that helps him play above his tools. I like him, and I think he’s going to have a decent big-league career. And I think he could really become a big deal in New York because the female fans are going to love him. He’s a good-looking kid.”

Ladies, can you confirm?
