Daily Prospect Report: March 3

Games of March 3

 

Hitters:

Garin Cecchini, Red Sox: 0-1, 2 BB. These are the types of lines you could see often from Cecchini, who has an excellent eye and draws a lot of walks. The former fourth-rounder isn't the typical corner profile, with only 14 career minor league home runs in 279 games.

 

Danny Santana, Twins: 2-5, 2 3B, 3 RBI. Santana has blazing speed and can play all over the field, making him a prime utility candidate soon. His ceiling is a second-division starter.

 

Byron Buxton, Twins: 1-2, 2B. I get the feeling I'll be including Buxton often on here.

 

Nick Castellanos, Tigers: 2-3, HR, 2 RBI. Castellanos is quickly solidifying the starting third base spot in Detroit this spring.

 

Javier Baez, Cubs: 2-3, HR, RBI. Few prospects carry the hype of Baez because of his power, so the community has a fit when he does go deep.

 

Jurickson Profar, Rangers: 1-2, 2 RBI. The starting second base spot is Profar's to lose, and his solid hitting ability should carry him well.

 

Chris Taylor, Mariners: 1-2, HR, 4 RBI. Taylor has a good all-around game without a flashy tool, but he runs well and plays good defense.

 

Billy Hamilton, Reds: 1-2, BB, SB. All it takes is getting on base.

 

Pitchers:

Henry Owens, Red Sox: 2 IP, H, R/ER, 2 K. Owens' prospect status seems to change constantly, but in the end he's a solid 4.

 

Kevin Gausman, Orioles: 2 IP, 2 H, R/ER, BB, 2 K. It's only a matter of time for Gausman.

 

Noah Syndergaard, Mets: 2 IP, H, 2 K. A lot of fans and players received their introduction to Syndergaard on Monday. It's a pleasant experience.

 

Jonathan Gray, Rockies: 2 IP, 2 H, BB, 2 K. The former first-rounder has the ceiling of a 1 with outstanding stuff.

 

Joe Ross, Padres: 2 IP, 2 H. Ross has an excellent starter's body with a fastball to match, but aside from a slider that flashes, his secondaries lag. Likely a back-end guy.

 

Archie Bradley, Diamondbacks: 3 IP, H, 2 BB, 6 K. Bradley was Bradley against the Rockies, starting with a three-pitch strikeout of Drew Stubbs to begin the game. There's a reason he's the best right-handed prospect in the game.

 

Eddie Butler, Rockies: 3 IP, H, 2 R/ER, 2 BB. People consider Butler on the fast track to Colorado, but we'll see how things shake out in the upper levels this season.
