The Prospect Journal: Introduction
Hey everybody. So by now, I've got everything figured out on the blog so I'm going to be coming out with stuff more frequently. Lately, I've only been writing about college baseball, but with Spring Training in full swing (lol) expect to see a lot more MLB stuff being put out. I'll also try my hand at writing about hockey in the coming months because I feel like I'm educated enough on the sport now. However, for the time being, I'm going to stick with baseball.
That being said, I would like to reveal my first blog series. Earlier in February, Eichel did his "College Journals" Series and it was successful, so I thought I'd do a series of my own titled, "The Prospect Journal." In this journal that will be continuously updated throughout the MLB season, I will hand pick MiLB prospects to write about. In each journal I will profile the player, grade them, and tell you why they're important to their teams, or in the grand scheme of the league.
Like I said, this will be a continous journal that doesn't really have an end point until the end of baseball season, but I'm going to start with a list of five guys. These five prospects are, in my opnion, some of the more interesting heading into the 2016 MLB season.
These players are:
Corey Seager, Los Angeles Dodgers
Alex Reyes, St. Louis Cardinals
Sean Newcomb, Atlanta Braves
AJ Reid, Houston Astros
Dansby Swanson, Atlanta Braves
Each of these players were picked for a reason that will be revealed to you individually. This is just an introduction. Tomorrow I will start with the Los Angeles Dodgers' Top Prospect, Corey Seager.
So check back tomorrow.
