It’s evident to see that the “Stars of tomorrow” are taking over the MLB.
All of these players are 25 or under:
Bryce Harper, Gary Sanchez, Mookie Betts, Fransisco Linder, Corey Seager, Carlos Correa, Luis Severino, Cody Bellinger, Alex Bregman, Trea Turner, Aaron Nola, Andrew Benintendi, Addison Russell, Miguel Sano, Joey Gallo, Xander, Bogaerts, Ozzie Albies, the list literally goes on and on.
All of these young guns are already MLB superstars, and are hard not to mention, when talking about the greats in the league.
As a baseball fan, this is an awesome time, knowing that America’s Pastime is in good hands, and will be for years to come.
But these stars are paving the way for others to follow behind, and the future “kids” of the MLB are here to play.
Here are my top 5 MiLB Prospects:
1. Vlad Guerrero Jr. 3B Blue Jays- No surprise here. After watching him hit the walk off in the futures game at Olympic stadium, he was a star. Guerrero Jr. is hitting .431 in 174 at bats in the minors. That wasn’t a typo. 10 HR’s, 49 RBI’s, 17 doubles. The Blue Jays have their franchise player for years to come, and I can’t wait to watch him hit bombs in the Rogers Centre.
2. Eloy Jimenez OF White Sox- The White Sox farm system seems to be in pretty good shape, as RHP Michael Kopech, and OF Luis Robert, are studs who will be big for Chicago. Jimenez is a dude that can straight up rake, and is going to hit for power and win home run derby’s in the future. In 146 at bats, Jimenez is hitting an impressive .336, with 9 Bombs to go with it.
3. Bo Bichette SS/2B Blue Jays – the Toronto Blue Jays have some stars in the making, with Guerrero Jr. leading the way. No Bichette hasn’t hit his stride yet this year, but definitely will. He’s batting .261 with 22 RBI’s. Last year he batted .362 on the season, and turned a lot of heads. Watch out for Bichette next year in Toronto, If not this year.
4. Nick Senzel 2B/3B Reds – batting .271 with an OBP of over .350, Senzel just looks like a good ol fashioned ball player to me. Doesn’t try to be fancy, but just wants to play. I could see him getting the call to the show very soon by Cincy, and him capitalizing on his chance. Gennett and Suarez aren’t playing bad, and i think Senzel is going to be a role player early on in his career, but he will be a guy that will be around for many many years.
5. Alex Reyes RHP Cardinals- 3-0, 23 Innings, 44 punch outs, 7 hits, 0.00 ERA. Not lying. He’s been in the majors before, but is back in the minors. This dude is raw, and I’m excited about him. He’s had some trouble in his past, with a few drug problems, and had to have Tommy John surgery, but watch out for this dude. The dirty birds got a good one.
