Early Spring Performance - The Hitting Prospects

Anthony A. Perri

With 2 weeks of Spring action in the books, today we'll take a peak at how the young prospects are performing.

For veteran players, spring stats are to be ingested but not digested. Veteran players typically take it easy during the first few weeks of the spring and usually there is nothing to make of their sometimes poor starts. It's a different situation for rookie prospects and players with less than a full year of MLB experience under their belts. For some of these players, these games will dictate whether of not they have a starting job or if they'll even make the team.

Below is a quick look at the young hitting prospects and their performance (sorted by AVG) through Friday's Games:

Prospects who are expected to win a MLB starting role:

All of the Rookies above, with the exception of Jeff Baker, are expected to open the season as a starter for their respective teams. As you can see in the grid above, most of them are off to a great start this spring. Only 3 (Scott Thorman, Nook Logan, and Akinori Iwanura) are struggling at the present time and the next 2 weeks could determine their fate.

Prospects who were expected to open the season in the minors:

Above is a list of 7 prospects who were not expected to open the season on a MLB roster, however their hot spring performance will force their respective GM's hand in the coming weeks. Currently, of the prospects above, only Ryan Braun has an open window to start the season in the majors (Our overall 13th Best Prospect).
