Spring Training Recap – February 25 2017


Now this is what we have been waiting for. A full slate of MLB vs. MLB spring training games. I don’t even care if some teams, like the Cubs, decide to average a pitching change every inning.

 

Top 60 Prospects Bradley Zimmer, Harrison Bader, and Matt Chapman Go Deep

Young players Bradley Zimmer, Harrison Bader and Matt Chapman both showed today a reason why they are highly rated.

Bradley Zimmer, ranked 16th and 26th in two prospects, sent the ball deep for a 3-run HR.

 

Bader, 40th and 49th on two prospect lists, crushed a pitch left well over the plate to give him his first HR of spring training.

 

Chapman (47th and 51st on the same two lists) did not disappoint either. His opposite field 2-run HR tied the game up for the Athletics.

Clayton Kershaw Makes His Debut

It was only an inning but Mr. Kershaw looked to be in fine form. Just ask Melky Cabrera who fell victim to a Kershaw curveball in the dirt.

Eugenio Suarez Gets in on the HR Action

There were several more HR’s today that I could have chosen from. But Eugenio Suarez is one of my favorite late-round 3B selections. In fact, he has made it onto all of my NFBC leagues so far. I’m expecting good things out of him this year.

Wesley Lyles

Wesley is a jack of all trades hobbyist. Though much of his spare time is spent playing board games (especially solo card games like Legendary), Hearthstone, Rocket League, and MLB The Show.e He also enjoys most sports, but pays way too much attention to baseball and football.
