Lewis notes that Isbel wasn't just impressive by prospect standards, but that he was simply one of the best overall players in camp. He made a couple highlight reel catches and hit .241 with two home runs, a triple, two doubles and a 6:1 K:BB in 30 plate appearances. Hamstring troubles and a fractured hamate bone cut his 2019 season short, but he hit .315/.429/.438 in 21 games in the Arizona Fall League. One big-league coach said Isbel looked like a big leaguer already, despite the fact that he has never played at Double-A or Triple-A. He may open the year at Double-A, but it seems like he is firmly on the fast track to the big leagues.
