This week, I have reports on three top Yankees prospects after a recent Scranton/Wikes-Barre/Pawtucket Red Sox Series May 8-10. Read on for my thoughts on OF Clint Frazier, OF Dustin Fowler, and utilityman Tyler Wade, who spent time both at shortstop and in the outfield during the series.
Anthony Alford (OF, Blue Jays) gets an emergency call-up, and the highly touted outfielder Bradley Zimmer makes his debut for Cleveland. Both players are part of this week’s eight debuts from around the big leagues.
There are players still down on the farm garnering plenty of interest with their performances, both on the field and off. Scott Kingery (2B, Phillies) and Michael Kopech (RHP, White Sox) highlight eight notable prospects in this week’s coverage.
We’re back this week with in-depth looks at Domingo Acevedo’s (RHP, Yankees) impressive Double-A debut, an update on the Orioles fireballing lefty Tanner Scott, as well as Braves shortstop Ozzie Albies and lefty Sean Newcomb.
The 2080 team did their homework and knocked heads on 2017 MLB First-Year Player Draft prospects. Here are our mock draft’s first-round selections!
Top prospect Alex Reyes (RHP), and potential impact arms Sandy Alcantara (RHP) and Jack Flaherty (RHP) are discussed, as are newly acquired 2016 draftees Dylan Carlson (OF), Delvin Perez (SS) and Dakota Hudson (RHP).
The young Yankees look ready to bolster the big league club with a new core of talent, setting a course its next prolonged run at a World Series title.
