#1 Wander Franco (SS – TBR)
Whenever you are reading a profile on the top prospects it can seem really easy to think it is just hyperbole. After all, sometimes top prospects turn into Byron Buxton, Alex Gordon or Jeff Francis, but let’s also keep in mind that they also become Mike Trout, Alex Rodriguez and Miguel Cabrera. Yes, there is risk with Franco, of course, but we are almost certainly looking at a .300 hitter with moderate power and if he ever reaches his ceiling, we could be talking about a perirenal batting crown contender with 35+ homers per season. A better way to think of him would be J.D. Martinez but at shortstop. You can expect Franco to get the call to Tampa Bay by season’s end.
