It has been an eventful first month of the season for some of baseball’s top prospects. For others, not so much.
Shortstop Carlos Correa and outfielder Oscar Taveras are both off to hot starts at their respective levels, with Correa batting .300/.366/.463 with 16 RBI at High-A Lancaster and Taveras batting .313/.360/.513 at Triple-A Memphis.
Unfortunately, a pair of top-10 prospects—as determined by Prospect Pipeline's End-of-Spring Top 100 Prospects—are sidelined with injuries, as Byron Buxton (left wrist sprain) and Addison Russell (right hamstring tear) are currently on the seven-day disabled list for their respective Double-A teams. Corey Seager also landed on the disabled list in the past week with a hamstring injury, while 2013 No. 1 overall draft pick Mark Appel was sent back to extended spring training after several unimpressive starts at High-A Lancaster.
Here’s a look at how the rest of baseball’s top-ranked prospects fared during the third week of the minor league season.
