Granted, the exhibition schedule has only just begun and nobody has been cut from camp, but prospects have been the talk of spring training thus far.
Whether it was Nick Castellanos taking Jonathon Papelbon yard to right-center or Zack Wheeler tossing two scoreless innings or Addison Russell burning the right fielder for a double or Kevin Gausman popping 97-98 mph or Jedd Gyorko launching a grand slam, many of the game’s top prospects have made the most of their playing time this spring.
However, just because they fare well in the early going doesn’t mean they’ll make the Opening Day roster, or, for that matter, appear in the major leagues this season.
But among the long, long list of prospects in big-league camp, here’s a look at 15 who stand the best chance of making the team.
