  • Xander Bogaerts, SS, Red Sox: 2-2, 2B. Don’t look now, but Bogaerts finished the spring hitting a respectable 278, driving home the ridiculousness of getting worked up about small sample sizes in spring.

  • Aaron Sanchez, RHP, Blue Jays: 2 IP, 3 K. We’ve been waiting for Sanchez to take the step from talent to production. He did it this spring. If he’s able to carry over his March performance into April, he’s going to become the prospect everyone has hoped he could be.

  • George Springer, OF, Astros: 3-3, 3 R, HR, 2 BB. Springer has his flaws with contact, but he’s going to deliver a lot of production despite them. He’s also going to make the Astros better immediately.

  • Yordano Ventura, RHP, Royals: 3 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 K. Even when he’s not completely on, he misses bats. That’s what makes him so effective. And fun. Man, I’m excited for Ventura this year.

  • Arismendy Alcantara, 2B, Cubs: 1- , R, HR. Alcantara sometimes ends up being the forgotten man in a deep Cubs system when people try to figure out where Starlin Castro, Javier Baez, Mike Olt, Kris Bryant, and Anthony Rizzo will all play at once. But in most systems, Alcantara would be the focal point. He’s got speed and power, and he can play a premium defensive position. That’s a solid prospect no matter who’s blocking him.
