5 Prospects Deserving a Promotion
- Updated: December 2, 2012
1. Christian Yelich OF Miami; He played at High-A where he put up some incredible stats. .330/.404/.519 with 46 extra-base hits and 20 stolen bases in 106 games. He should be promoted to Double-A this season if not further depending on the how the Marlins season goes.
2. Alen Hanson SS Pittsburgh; He played at Low Class- A, where the 19 year-old multi-tooled played put up gaudy numbers, over the course of the season 309/.381/.528 with 151 hits, 62 extra-base hits (16 home runs), 35 stolen bases and 105/55 K/BB in 124 games. He should start the season at High Class-A. He may be a possible option at 2B, further down the road.
3. Jose Fernandez RHP Miami; He switched time between Low and High Class- A, where he put up unrealistic numbers, the 19 year old put 14-1 with a 1.75 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, .191 BAA and 158.35 K/BB rate in 134 innings. He may start off the season at Triple-A, but the Marlins are in a rebuilding year so look for him at Double-A at the beginning of the season.
4. Wil Myers OF Kansas City; He played both at the Double-A and Triple-A levels where he batted .314/.387/.600 with 26 doubles, 37 home runs, 109 RBI and 140/61 K/BB in 134 games. He may be on Kansas City’s opening day roster depending on the amount of space and what position needs to be filled,
5. Oscar Taveras OF St. Louis; He played at Double-A Springfield this year, where the 20 year old batted .321/.380/.572 with 67 extra-base hits (23 home runs), 94 RBI and 56/42 K/BB in 124 games. He could battle for a spot on the opening day roster, if not, look for him at Triple-A.
