Other Notable Players:
A former first round pick back in 2017. Warmoth hasn’t exactly blossomed into the star shortstop as previously thought, but he’s turned himself into a capable super-utility man in AAA. Splitting time between short, third, second, and all outfield spots, he’s a fairly valuable asset. He’s shown a good eye at the plate as well, sporting a .350 OBP last season over 107 games.
A native of the Bahamas, Young has shown multiple tools throughout his minor league career. He enters his age 24 season after stealing 20 bases, hitting 7 homeruns, and sporting a .350 OBP in 2021. Chavez Young will look to build off of a successful AA season and maybe bolster his prospect reputation.
I’m cheating a bit here, but Horwitz is a guy I believe could skip AA. After a successful campaign spent mostly in High A, Horwitz excelled in the Arizona Fall League. Over 16 games he hit to a .944 OPS and split time between first base and left field. Horwitz could ride his advanced plate approach and versatility to the big leagues sooner than later. He’s entering his age 24 season, and is definitely someone to keep an eye on going forward.
