Giancarlo Stanton boasts the most power of any hitter in the game. That, my friends, is a fact.
On the 20-to-80 scouting scale, his raw power grades as an easy 80. If you don’t believe me, I encourage you to watch this footage of his legendary home run during batting practice at AT&T Park in San Francisco.
Since reaching the major leagues as a 20-year-old in 2010, the 6’5” right-handed hitter has amassed 93 home runs in 373 career games over the last three seasons. In 2012, Stanton led the major leagues with a .608 slugging percentage but played in only 123 games.
More importantly, with each new season, the 23-year-old has improved the utility of said power. It’s only a matter of time—and health—until he reaches the 50-home run plateau.
But as we shift our focus to the minor leagues, is there a prospect with the raw power to be the next Giancarlo Stanton?
Here’s a look at five prospects with enough pop to warrant consideration.
