Others to watch out for in the future.

Donavan Tate OF SD: Projected to be as good as Jason Heyward.

UPDATE: Has been troubled by injures this year but still projects to be as good as Heyward.

Eric Hosmer 1B KC: Was a top prospect coming into last year but suffered from bad eye sight.

UPDATE: His eye sight is better and is currently destroying A+ pitching

Randall Delgado SP ATL: An underrated teenage coming into the season

UPDATE: Doing so well some people were rating him ahead of Teheran before Teheran got started.

Note: Anyone with 50 or more innings pitched or 150 or more at bats have graduated from this list.
