Many of the game’s top prospects have been invited to big league camp this spring, which indicates that they’re within a few years of reaching the majors. This year’s group of top-ranked prospects is highlighted by a core group of promising sluggers, including Wil Myers, Mike Olt and Xander Bogaerts.
In fact, had the Twins extended an invitation to third baseman Miguel Sano, the only prospect in the minor leagues with 80-grade power (at least in my opinion), then all of the top young power hitters would have been represented.
Here’s a look at the 10 most intimidating power-hitting prospects participating in major league spring training.
*All scouting grades refer to the 20-80 major league scouting scale, where 50 represents average.
