Prospects

  • Gregory Polanco, CF, Pirates (Leones del Escogido, DWL): 0-3, 2 BB. Polanco’s hit tool may be the one thing that could hold him back from being a true superstar, but the way he controls the strike zone will help close the gap. Even if he hits in the .280s instead of over .300, he should still get on base at a solid clip, and he is a plus base runner.
  • Engel Beltre, CF, Rangers (Tigres del Licey, DWL): 2-4. Beltre is out of options so he’ll probably make the Rangers roster no matter how he hits, but with a crowded outfield, he probably won’t get a chance to be much more than a fourth outfielder.
  • Eduardo Escobar, SS, Twins (Caribes de Anzoategui, VWL): 2-4, R. The Twins utility infielder is almost all glove, but his competition in the middle of their infield isn’t exactly steep, so he should be able to work his way into some decent playing time this season.
