14. Jace Bohrofen- A+ (Previous Rank: 10)
22 y.o / LHH / OF

Coming off a dominant stint at Single-A, the expectations were high for Bohrofen entering 2024. He has been a bit underwhelming at High-A so far as the power numbers have not really been what they were expected to be. Despite this he has still been above average and is showing excellent plate discipline. He has been incredibly pull happy even compared to normal which might have something to do with his performance up to this point. There is swing in miss in his game and he has mostly managed his strikeouts so far against better breaking balls than what he saw at Single-A. If Bohrofen is going to strike out some he'll need to slug more for his bat to play in a corner outfield spot. There is time for the former sixht-rounder to catch fire and I still believe in his hitting profile.

13. Enmanuel Bonilla- FCL (Previous Rank: 13)
18 y.o / RHH / OF

There were a lot of folks excited about Bonilla this year but some of the concerns around his hit tool have reared their head in the FCL. He largely dominated the Dominican Summer League last year but there was some concern about his strikeout rate. It has since ballooned and he has been struggling to draw walks as well. Bonilla hits the ball hard with regularity and is incredibly young but he'll need to sharpen up his plate skills to reach his ceiling. He'll also need to learn to make more of his hardest contact in the air. There's tons of potential here, especially if he can stick in center field, but lots of things to work on as well. I'm holding him at 13 for now despite the poor performance.
