MLB’s Top Prospects Displaying Prowess In Spring Training

Major League Baseball’s top prospects received a bad hand for this season. This is the result of the lack of Minor League Baseball in 2020 due to COVID-19. This meant players had to take it upon themselves to stay in shape and even find alternate modes of work. Now during this Spring Training, there appears to be no rust whatsoever on the top prospects who’ve graced the field.

Bobby Dalbec

Although down on the list, Red Sox’s number 93 prospect Bobby Dalbec has been supplying a steady amount of power so far this spring training. This last Wednesday he hit a grand slam against the Twins increasing his home run total this spring to five. In 12 games, he is batting .333 with an OPS at a staggering 1.345. Expect him to get ample playing time with the big league club as he did at the tail end of 2020.

Wander Franco

Rays shortstop Wander Franco was recently reassigned to the Minors after putting up solid numbers this Spring Training. The number one overall prospect went five for 15 in seven games. He’ll perhaps spend the whole 2021 season in the minors unless a September call-up or injury comes his way.

Ke’Bryan Hayes

The Pirates’ top prospect has been practically tearing the cover off the baseball. In nine games, Hayes is batting .423 with an OPS of 1.252. This is something he’s relatively used to doing, as during his callup last season, he hit .375 with a 1.124 OPS in 24 games. He is a strong candidate for the National League Rookie of the Year, as Pittsburgh will give him that expected playing time.

Tarik Skubal

The Detroit Tiger’s top lefthanded pitching prospect has done nothing wrong this Spring Training. Skubal is dominating and is putting up goose eggs. He has three straight scoreless outings accompanied by 12 strikeouts and only three walks in eight innings pitched. His fastball touches a sizzling 97 miles per hour complemented by an 86 mile per hour slider. Look out for this man once he graces the Major League field.
