Top prospects: Who's still up? Who got cut?

March 30th, 2021

As Spring Training winds down, rosters are beginning to take shape, and we're starting to get a feel for which prospects will be putting on crisp, clean uniforms and taking part in Opening Day festivities.

While many of the game's best prospects were invited to Spring Training, some have been told they'll start the season either in the Minors or at the team's alternate training site. Those players, however, may still get the opportunity to play in Major League Spring Training games and gain valuable experience.

With all that in mind, here's a team-by-team breakdown of the prospects who received an invite to Major League Spring Training and a look at where they stand now:


Blue Jays (Top 30 Prospects)


Alejandro Kirk, C (No. 5) -- Kirk has parlayed a strong spring (.318/.360/.636) into a probable backup role when Toronto breaks camp. The 22-year-old batted .400 in a nine-game cameo with the big league club last year.

T.J. Zeuch, RHP (No. 28) -- Zeuch pitched well in Florida after a solid, albeit brief showing in three big league appearances in 2020. On the heels of the strong spring, the 25-year-old managed to break into a crowded bullpen.

Nate Pearson, RHP (No. 1, MLB No. 10)
-- Pearson was a virtual lock to begin the season in the Jays' rotation before straining his right groin and then aggravating it during a bullpen session. Despite a rough big league debut in 2020, the 24-year-old can be almost unhittable thanks to a dynamic fastball-slider combination and an improving changeup.

Sent down: Austin Martin, SS/OF (No. 2), Jordan Groshans, SS (No. 3), Simeon Woods Richardson, RHP (No. 4), Orelvis Martinez, SS (No. 6), Alek Manoah, RHP (No. 7),Gabriel Moreno, C (No. 8), Miguel Hiraldo, SS/2B (No. 9), Adam Kloffenstein, RHP (No. 10), CJ Van Eyk, RHP (No. 11), Otto Lopez, INF/OF (No. 12), Leonardo Jimenez, SS/2B (No. 13), Joey Murray, RHP (No. 18), Riley Adams, C (No. 19), Yosver Zuleta, RHP (No. 23), Josh Palacios, OF (No. 29), Kevin Smith, SS/3B (No. 30)

Orioles (Top 30 Prospects)

Ryan Mountcastle, OF (No. 5, MLB No. 77)
-- In the midst of a rebuild that is starting to bear fruit, Mountcastle is one of the brightest prospects the O's have to offer. The 24-year-old garnered a third-place vote in the 2020 AL Rookie-of-the-Year race after hitting .333/.386/.492 with 10 extra-base hits and 23 RBIs in 35 games.

Dean Kremer, RHP (No. 8) -- The injury to Félix Hernández more than likely opens up a spot for Kremer, who made his big league debut last summer. In four starts with Baltimore, the right-hander averaged 10.6 K/9.

Long shots
Adley Rutschman, C (No. 1, MLB No. 2) -- The 2019 No. 1 overall Draft pick and MLB Pipeline’s No. 2 overall prospect, Rutschman remains in big league camp, but he’s not expected to debut until late in 2021, if not ’22.

Terrin Vavra, 2B (No. 13) -- Vavra, who came over from the Rockies in the Mychal Givens trade last August, has been used only as a late-inning replacement this spring. Like Rutschman, the 23-year-old has not played above Low-A, though he worked a lot on his defense at the alternate training site, getting reps in the outfield this spring.

Sent down: Michael Baumann, RHP (No. 9), Yusniel Diaz, OF (No. 10), Keegan Akin, LHP (No. 11); Zac Lowther, LHP (No. 12), Ryan McKenna, OF (No. 16), Jahmai Jones, 2B/OF (No. 20); Alexander Wells, LHP (No. 21), Rylan Bannon, 2B/3B (No. 24), Tyler Nevin, 1B/3B (No. 25)

Randy Arozarena, OF (No. 3, MLB No. 34) -- Arozarena didn’t get the call to join the Rays until late last August, but after going deep seven times over 64 at-bats in the regular season and setting postseason records with 29 hits and 10 homers, the 26-year-old is expected to be a big part of the Rays’ lineup in 2021.

Sent down: Wander Franco, SS (No. 1), Luis Patiño, RHP (No. 2), Vidal Brujan, 2B/SS (No. 4), Brendan McKay, 1B/LHP (No. 5), Shane McClanahan, LHP (No. 6), Xavier Edwards, 2B/SS (No. 7), Shane Baz, RHP (No. 8), Greg Jones, SS (No. 10), Josh Lowe, OF (No. 13), Blake Hunt, C (No. 19), Brent Honeywell Jr., RHP (No. 20), Josh Fleming, LHP (No. 21); Drew Strotman, RHP (No. 22), Kevin Padlo, 3B/1B (No. 25)

Red Sox (Top 30 Prospects)

Bobby Dalbec, 3B/1B (No. 3; MLB No. 93) -- After swatting eight homers in 80 at-bats last season, Dalbec arrived at camp as Boston’s likely starting first baseman, and he's strengthened his hold on the position this spring. If he can keep his strikeout rate in check, the 25-year-old could be a top contender for the AL Rookie of the Year Award.

Garrett Whitlock, RHP (No. 30) -- Picked up from the Yankees in the Rule 5 Draft, Whitlock has excelled during Spring Training, cementing his place in Boston's bullpen.

Sent down: Triston Casas, 1B (No. 1; MLB No. 44), Jeter Downs, SS/2B (No. 2; MLB No. 49), Jarren Duran, OF (No. 4), Bryan Mata, RHP (No. 5), Gilberto Jimenez, OF (No. 6), Tanner Houck, RHP (No. 7), Jay Groome, LHP (No. 8), Thaddeus Ward, RHP (No. 10), Ronaldo Hernandez, C (No. 12), Connor Seabold, RHP (No. 15), Connor Wong, C/2B/3B (No. 17), Jeisson Rosario, OF (No. 22), Hudson Potts, 3B/2B (No. 24), Andrew Politi, RHP (No. 27), Eduard Bazardo, RHP (No. 28)

Yankees (Top 30 Prospects)

Clarke Schmidt, RHP (No. 2; MLB No 88) -- Any chance Schmidt had of earning a spot in the Yankees' Opening Day rotation was eliminated when he was shut down with an extensor strain in his right elbow at the start of Spring Training. The righty is getting close to starting a throwing program.

Sent down: Deivi García, RHP (No. 3); Oswald Peraza, SS (No. 4); Luis Gil, RHP (No. 5); Austin Wells, C (No. 6); Luis Medina, RHP (No. 7); Yoendrys Gomez, RHP (No. 8); Alexander Vizcaino, RHP (No. 9); Estevan Florial, OF (No. 10); Ezequiel Duran, 2B (No. 15); Albert Abreu, RHP (No. 18); Josh Breaux, C (No. 19); Anthony Seigler, C (No. 22); Glenn Otto, RHP (No. 28)


Indians (Top 30 Prospects)

Triston McKenzie, RHP (No. 2, MLB No. 51)
If he stays healthy, the 23-year-old probably did enough in his taste of the Majors last year -- striking out 42 with a 3.24 ERA in 33 1/3 innings during the regular season -- to work his way into the starting rotation for 2021. His ERA is a lofty 7.53 this spring, but he's whiffed 12 in 14 1/3 frames.

Emmanuel Clase, RHP (No. 17)
Clase missed the 2020 season after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs while recovering from a right shoulder strain incurred in camp. Cleveland feels he's in a better spot to help out in the bullpen this year, both physically and mentally.

Long shots
Tyler Freeman, SS (No. 3, MLB No. 98) -- According to MLB Pipeline, Freeman possesses the best hit tool in the organization (60), so it shouldn't be too long until he gets the chance to prove that. In his first three pro seasons, Freeman hit .319 with a 9 percent strikeout rate.

Owen Miller, SS/2B (No. 18) -- He's already been told that he won't be making the club, but the 24-year-old is still playing in Cactus League games. Miller is another of the club's smooth-swinging infielders, making consistent line-drive contact to all fields.

Sent down: Nolan Jones, 3B (No. 1, MLB No. 36); Bo Naylor, C (No. 4); Gabriel Arias, SS (No. 6); Carlos Vargas, RHP (No. 19); Bobby Bradley, 1B (No. 20); Daniel Johnson, OF (No. 21); Sam Hentges, LHP (No. 27); Scott Moss, LHP (No. 28)

Carlos Hernández, RHP (No. 11) -- Hernández made his big league debut last season, posting a 4.91 ERA across five appearances. Developed as a starter, the 24-year-old right-hander could see action out of the bullpen this season.

Sent down: Bobby Witt Jr., SS (No. 1, MLB No. 7); Daniel Lynch, LHP (No. 2, MLB No. 29); Asa Lacy, LHP (No. 3, MLB No. 30); Jackson Kowar, RHP (No. 4); Kyle Isbel, OF (No. 5); Erick Pena, OF (No. 6); Nick Loftin, SS (No. 7); Jonathan Bowlan, RHP (No. 8); Nick Pratto, 1B (No. 9); Austin Cox, LHP (No. 10); Carlos Hernández, RHP (No. 11); Alec Marsh, RHP (No. 12); Jon Heasley, RHP (No. 13); MJ Melendez, C (No. 14); Seuly Matias, OF (No. 17); Daniel Tillo, LHP (No. 21); Ronald Bolanos, RHP (No. 24); Lucius Fox, SS (No. 26); Angel Zerpa, LHP (No. 29)

Casey Mize, RHP (No. 2, MLB No. 11) -- After being selected with the No. 1 overall pick in 2018, Mize ascended to the big leagues and made his debut a day after Skubal made his. Mize posted a 6.99 ERA over seven starts, showing promise despite the underwhelming results. If he's more comfortable with his arsenal, Mize could realize his potential in 2021.

Tarik Skubal, LHP (No. 4, MLB No. 24) -- Skubal's stock sky-rocketed over the past couple years, culminating in the southpaw's big league debut last season. Despite posting a 5.63 ERA in 32 frames, Skubal looked right at home facing big league competition, and he could develop into an impact starter for the Tigers.

Akil Baddoo, OF (No. 24) -- Baddoo, a Rule 5 Draft pick, has been raking so far this spring. If he doesn't make the Tigers' Opening Day roster, he'd have to be offered back to the Twins and that seems highly unlikely based on his performance thus far.

Sent down: Spencer Torkelson, 3B/1B (No. 1, MLB No. 3); Riley Greene, OF (No. 3, MLB No. 21); Matt Manning, RHP (No. 5); Isaac Paredes, 3B (No. 6); Dillon Dingler, C (No. 7); Joey Wentz, LHP (No. 9); Parker Meadows, OF (No. 10); Daz Cameron, OF (No. 11); Alex Faedo, RHP (No. 12); Jake Rogers, C (No. 16); Franklin Perez, RHP (No. 17); Kody Clemens, 2B (No. 18); Zack Short, SS (No. 26); Ryan Kreidler, SS/3B (No. 27); Beau Burrows, RHP (No. 28); Zack Hess, RHP (No. 29)

Ryan Jeffers, C (No. 6) -- A second-round pick in 2018, Jeffers made it to the big leagues last season and started a pair of AL Wild Card Series games behind the plate.

Taxi squad
Brent Rooker, OF (No. 13)
-- Rooker, a power-over-hit slugger, made his big league debut last season and notched his first MLB homer before he fractured his arm in September.

Sent down: Royce Lewis, SS (No. 1, MLB No. 17); Alex Kirilloff, OF/1B (No. 2, MLB No. 26); Trevor Larnach, OF (No. 3, MLB No. 80); Jordan Balazovic, RHP (No. 4, MLB No. 97); Jhoan Duran, RHP (No. 5); Aaron Sabato (No. 7); Matt Canterino (No. 8); Gilberto Celestino, OF (No. 9); Josh Winder (No. 15); Travis Blankenhorn, 2B/OF/3B (No. 19); Jose Miranda (No. 20); Bailey Ober, RHP (No. 25), Ben Rortvedt, C (No. 29)

White Sox (Top 30 prospects)

Andrew Vaughn, 1B (No. 1, MLB No. 14) -- Vaughn, a Golden Spikes Award winner at the University of California in 2018, went No. 3 overall in the 2019 Draft to the White Sox. A 65-grade hitter, Vaughn impressed at the alternate training site last season and in Spring Training this year. He projects as a .300 hitter with 30 homers per season and a healthy amount of walks.

Michael Kopech, RHP (No. 2, MLB No. 39) -- Kopech pitched for the first time in a year this spring, showing the same filthy stuff that led to his big league debut in 2018. After undergoing Tommy John surgery in '18, Kopech was rehabbing and returned a year ago before the season was shut down. After opting to sit out last season, Kopech worked out of the bullpen this spring and will do the same to start the season, although he could move into the rotation.

Nick Madrigal, 2B (No. 3, MLB No. 40) -- Madrigal, who had a storied career at Oregon State, was taken with the No. 4 overall pick in 2018, the highest a second baseman has ever been drafted. Madrigal rarely strikes out, and he posted a .340/.376/.369 slash line in 29 big league games last season.

Garrett Crochet, LHP (No. 4, MLB No. 56) -- Crochet, a first-round pick in 2020, became the first player to make his pro debut in the big leagues since Mike Leake in 2010. The Tennessee alum has been impressive this spring and is capable of reaching triple digits with his fastball to pair with an above-average slider.

Yermin Mercedes, C (No. 22) -- Mercedes, who has seen time at all four infield and outfield corners as a pro, mostly at first base, lacks quickness and range and is best suited to DH.

Sent down: Jonathan Stiever, RHP (No. 8); Micker Adolfo, OF (No. 10); Blake Rutherford, OF (No. 12); Gavin Sheets, 1B (No. 13); Luis Gonzalez, OF (No. 14); Zack Burdi, RHP (No. 15), Jake Burger, 3B (No. 16); Jimmy Lambert, RHP (No. 20); Bernardo Flores Jr., LHP (No. 21); Yolbert Sanchez, SS (No. 23); Tyler Johnson, RHP (No. 25); Caleb Freeman, RHP (No. 26); Lenyn Sosa, SS (No. 29)


Chris Rodriguez, RHP (No. 4) -- With injuries to Félix Peña and Aaron Slegers, there are a couple bullpen spots open. Although he has logged just 9 1/3 regular-season innings since 2018, Rodriguez has electric stuff that would plan well in relief for the Angels.

Sent down: Brandon Marsh, OF (No. 1, MLB No. 53); Reid Detmers, LHP (No. 2, MLB No. 74); Jordyn Adams, OF (No. 3); Jeremiah Jackson, SS (No. 5); Hector Yan, LHP (No. 10); Livan Soto, SS (No. 14); Davis Daniel, RHP (No. 20); Packy Naughton, LHP (No. 23) (injured); Denny Brady, RHP (No. 29)

Bryan Abreu, RHP (No. 14) -- The young right-hander didn't open camp as a lock, but some unexpected openings on the pitching staff created more opportunities, and Abreu impressed in his first four appearances (three starts). He was informed after the last of those outings that he'd won a spot on the Opening Day roster in the Houston bullpen.

Chas McCormick, OF (No. 18) -- McCormick continues to be a part of the fourth outfielder discussion, already occupying a 40-man spot, unlike his competitor Jose Siri. In an extended spring look, McCormick’s bat has not shown up much, but his strong defense remains a constant in all parts of the grass.

Sent down: Forrest Whitley, RHP (No. 1, MLB No. 41); Pedro Leon, OF (No. 2); Hunter Brown, RHP (No. 3); Jeremy Peña, SS/2B (No. 4); Korey Lee, C (No. 5); Freudis Nova, INF (No. 7); Colin Barber, OF (No. 8); Jairo Solis, RHP (No. 9); Tyler Ivey, RHP (No. 10); Alex Santos, RHP (No. 11); Shawn Dubin, RHP (No. 12); Zach Daniels, OF (No. 13); Peter Solomon, RHP (No. 15); Grae Kessinger, SS/3B (No. 16); Jose Alberto Rivera, RHP (No. 18); Jojanse Torres, RHP (No. 21); Brett Conine, RHP (No. 24); Austin Hansen, RHP (No. 25); Nivaldo Rodriguez, RHP (No. 27); Blair Henley, RHP (No. 28); Ronnie Dawson, OF (No. 30)

A.J. Puk, LHP (No. 2) -- As the club’s top pitching prospect, who also has Major League experience, Puk is an obvious choice to replace the injured Mike Fiers in the rotation. However, coming off a shoulder injury that shelved his 2020 season and eventually required surgery, Puk has not stretched out yet, innings-wise.

Daulton Jefferies, RHP (No. 4) -- Jefferies could be Puk's biggest competition for the starting job, given his stingy spring and innings logged. The 25-year-old made his Major League debut last summer, but he only threw two innings in one start.

Sent down: Tyler Soderstrom, C (No. 1); Nick Allen, SS/2B (No. 3); Logan Davidson, SS (No. 5); Luis Barrera, OF (No. 7), Jeff Criswell, RHP (No. 8); Greg Deichmann, OF (No. 9); James Kaprielian, RHP (No. 10); Grant Holmes, RHP (No. 15); Skye Bolt, OF (No. 17); Buddy Reed, OF (No. 21); Wandisson Charles, RHP (No. 23); Cody Thomas, OF (No. 24); Miguel Romero, RHP (No. 26); Brian Howard, RHP (No. 27), Parker Dunshee, RHP (No. 28); Colin Peluse, RHP (No. 29)

Mariners (Top 30 prospects)

Taylor Trammell, OF (SEA No. 6, MLB No. 100) -- Traded in each of the past two seasons, Trammell has put himself in contention to open 2021 as Seattle’s starting left fielder.

Long shots
Jake Fraley, OF (SEA No. 21) -- Fraley was the frontrunner to be the team's starting left fielder entering camp, but his struggles at the plate may end up costing him a roster spot.

Sent down: Jarred Kelenic, OF (No. 1, MLB No. 4); Julio Rodriguez, OF (No. 2, MLB No. 5); Emerson Hancock, RHP (No. 3, MLB No. 31); Logan Gilbert, RHP (No. 4, MLB No. 33); George Kirby, RHP (No. 5, MLB No. 92); Cal Raleigh, C (No. 8); Juan Then, RHP (No. 9); Brandon Williamson, LHP (No. 10); Aaron Fletcher, LHP (No. 18); Wyatt Mills, RHP (No. 22); Sam Delaplane, RHP (No. 24); Ljay Newsome, RHP (No. 26); Joey Gerber, RHP (No. 30)

Rangers (Top 30 prospects)

Dane Dunning, RHP (No. 3, MLB No. 91) -- Acquired from the White Sox in the Lance Lynn trade, Dunning is in consideration to fill one of the tandem starter roles the Rangers plan to use this season. After undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2019, the right-hander made his MLB debut last season and recorded a 3.97 ERA with 35 K’s in 34 innings for Chicago.

Leody Taveras, OF (No. 4) -- Viewed as the Rangers’ center fielder of the future, the speedy Taveras has struggled this spring, but he should be part of the Opening Day roster.

Kyle Cody, RHP (No. 22) -- Another candidate to fill a tandem-starter role, the 6-foot-7 Cody had a 1.59 ERA with 18 strikeouts in 22 2/3 innings last year, although he also walked 13 batters.

Jonah Heim, C (No. 28) -- The Rangers picked up Heim along with Khris Davis in the trade that sent Elvis Andrus to the A’s. Heim is expected to back up Jose Trevino behind the plate.

Sam Huff, C (No. 2, MLB No. 78) -- Huff made his big league debut last season and recorded a 1.136 OPS with three homers in 33 plate appearances, but he's expected to open 2021 in the Minors after straining his left hamstring during the first week of Spring Training.

Sent down: Josh Jung, 3B (No. 1); Cole Winn, RHP (No. 5); Justin Foscue, 2B (No. 7); Hans Crouse, RHP (No. 9); Davis Wendzel, 3B (No. 10); Sherten Apostel, 3B/1B (No. 11); Anderson Tejeda, SS (No. 12); Steele Walker, OF (No. 13); David Garcia, C (No. 15); Yerry Rodriguez, RHP (No. 21); Joe Palumbo, RHP (No. 23); A.J. Alexy, RHP (No. 26); Curtis Terry, 1B (No. 30)


Cristian Pache, OF (No. 1; MLB No. 12) -- Pache has struggled with the bat this spring, but he’s expected to be part of the Opening Day roster, and his defense could earn him the starting job in center field over Ender Inciarte.

Ian Anderson, RHP (No. 2; MLB No. 18) -- Summoned to the Majors to help an injury-plagued Braves rotation last season, Anderson was brilliant in six starts, recording a 1.95 ERA with 41 strikeouts over 32 1/3 innings. He’s locked into a starting spot entering 2021.

Alex Jackson, C (No. 16) -- Jackson has played nine games for the Braves in the past two seasons, going 2-for-20. He won the competition with Contreras to open 2021 as Atlanta's backup catcher.

Sent down: Drew Waters, OF (No. 3, MLB No. 35); Shea Langeliers, C (No. 4, MLB No. 73); Braden Shewmake, SS (No. 5); Kyle Muller, LHP (No. 6);William Contreras, C (No. 7); Tucker Davidson, LHP (No. 9); Michael Harris, OF (No. 11); Patrick Weigel, RHP (No. 12); Freddy Tarnok, RHP (No. 13); Bryce Ball, 1B (No. 15); Trey Harris, OF (No. 17); Victor Vodnik, RHP (No. 18); Daysbel Hernandez, RHP (No. 20); CJ Alexander, 3B (No. 23); Thomas Burrows, LHP (No. 25); Logan Brown, C (No. 28); Justin Dean, OF (No. 29); William Woods, RHP (No. 30)

Marlins (Top 30 Prospects)

Jazz Chisholm, SS (No. 4) -- Chisholm won the starting job at second base. The toolsy prospect made his MLB debut last season, hitting .161 with two homers and two steals in 21 games.

Trevor Rogers, LHP (No. 7) -- While Rogers had a 6.11 ERA in seven starts last season, he showed promise by posting a 12.5 K/9 rate. The left-hander has continued to rack up the K’s this spring, making him a favorite to grab a rotation spot.

Paul Campbell, RHP (No. 29) -- A Rule 5 Draft pick, Campbell would have been offered back to the Rays if he didn't crack the Marlins’ big league roster.

Nick Neidert, RHP (No. 12) -- Neidert is expected to function as rotation depth for Miami after tossing 8 1/3 innings for the club last season. He could make the Opening Day roster if Sánchez isn’t properly stretched out.

Jesús Sánchez, OF (No. 8) -- Sánchez is still in big league camp as he works his way back from a groin strain.

Sent down: Sixto Sánchez, RHP (No. 1, MLB No. 15); JJ Bleday, OF (No. 2, MLB No. 20); Lewin Diaz, 1B (No. 6); Braxton Garrett, LHP (No. 9); Jose Devers, SS (No. 10); Nasim Nunez, SS (No. 15); Monte Harrison, OF (No. 16); Jerar Encarnacion, OF (No. 23); Jordan Holloway, RHP (No. 24); Will Banfield, C (No. 30)

Sent down: Francisco Alvarez, C (No. 1); Ronny Mauricio, SS (No. 2); Matthew Allan, RHP (No. 3); Brett Baty, 3B (No. 4); Pete Crow-Armstrong, OF (No. 5); Khalil Lee, OF (No. 7); Mark Vientos, 3B (No. 8); Thomas Szapucki, LHP (No. 10); Sam McWilliams, RHP (No. 16); Ryley Gilliam, RHP (No. 18); Franklyn Kilome, RHP (No. 22); Tyler Megill, RHP (No. 23); Oscar De La Cruz, RHP (No. 24); Marcel Renteria, RHP (No. 25); Yennsy Diaz, RHP (No. 27)

Nationals (Top 30 Prospects)

Sent down: Cade Cavalli, RHP (No. 1, MLB No. 99); Jackson Rutledge, RHP (No. 2); Cole Henry, RHP (No. 3); Yasel Antuna, SS/3B (No. 4); Tim Cate, LHP (No. 8); Matt Cronin, LHP (No. 10); Drew Mendoza, 1B (No. 11); Israel Pineda, C (No. 15); Joan Adon, RHP (No. 16); Jackson Cluff, SS (No. 17); Seth Romero, LHP (No. 18); Tres Barrera, C (No. 19); Ben Braymer, RHP (No. 21); Steven Fuentes, RHP (No. 22); Tyler Dyson, RHP (No. 23); Jakson Reetz, C (No. 26)

Phillies (Top 30 Prospects)

Connor Brogdon, RHP (No. 22) -- Brogdon became one of the Phillies' most trusted bullpen arms down the stretch in 2020, striking out 14 batters with two walks while allowing just one hit over 8 2/3 scoreless innings last September.

Sent down: Spencer Howard, RHP (No. 1); Bryson Stott, SS (No. 3); Francisco Morales, RHP (No. 4); Rafael Marchan, C (No. 5); Johan Rojas, OF (No. 8); Simon Muzziotti, OF (No. 10); Adonis Medina, RHP (No. 11); Mickey Moniak, OF (No. 12); Damon Jones, LHP (No. 14); JoJo Romero (No. 15); Mauricio Llovera, RHP (No. 18); Nick Maton, SS (No. 19); Rodolfo Duran, C (No. 20); Ramon Rosso, RHP (No. 21); Jhailyn Ortiz, OF (No. 24); Christopher Sanchez, LHP (No. 25); Kyle Dohy, LHP (No. 27); Logan O'Hoppe, C (No. 28)


Brewers (Top 30 Prospects)

Justin Topa, RHP (No. 28) -- Topa started off his Spring Training campaign with a pair of scoreless outings but struggled after that.

Sent down: Garrett Mitchell, OF (No. 1, MLB No. 65); Brice Turang, SS/2B (No. 2, MLB No. 96); Ethan Small, LHP (No. 4); Mario Feliciano, C (No. 5); Aaron Ashby, LHP (No. 7); Tristen Lutz, OF (No. 12); Zack Brown, RHP (No. 17); Payton Henry, C (No. 18); Alec Bettinger, RHP (No. 22); Corey Ray, OF (No. 23); Clayton Andrews, LHP/OF (No. 24); Dylan File, RHP (No. 25)

Cardinals (Top 30 Prospects)

Dylan Carlson, OF (No. 1, MLB No. 13) -- After making his big league debut last season, Carlson seems poised to break out this year. MLB's No. 13 overall prospect has been showing off his plus tools this spring.

Edmundo Sosa, INF (No. 18) -- Sosa, who spent the bulk of 2020 at the Cardinals’ alternate training site but also appeared in eight games over multiple stints with the Major League club, made the big league roster.

Justin Williams, OF (No. 19) -- Williams, who appeared in the big leagues briefly last season and in 2018, has been hitting the ball hard at camp and made the big league roster.

Adbert Alzolay, RHP (No. 7) -- Alzolay was impressive in the big leagues last season, posting a 2.95 ERA in six games. His spring hasn't been as smooth, with the 26-year-old struggling out of the gate.

Pirates (Top 30 Prospects)

Ke'Bryan Hayes, 3B (No. 1, MLB No. 9) -- Hayes is a leading contender for the 2021 National League Rookie of the Year award, and he's showing why this spring, posting an absurd .432/.475/.784 line in 12 games. Hayes has nine extra-base hits in 37 at-bats.

Wil Crowe, RHP (No. 23) -- A second-round pick in 2017, Crowe was acquired by the Bucs from the Nats in the Josh Bell trade and has impressed this spring. He made his big league debut for the Nats last season.

Jose Soriano, RHP (No. 25) -- The Pirates selected Soriano in the 2020 Rule 5 Draft after the former Angels prospect underwent Tommy John surgery in February of that year.

Tyler Stephenson (No. 4, MLB No. 95) -- Stephenson hasn't exactly lit the Cactus League on fire this spring, but the backup catcher job is his.

Sent down: Jose Garcia, SS (No. 6); Tony Santillan, RHP (No. 11); Riley O'Brien, RHP (No. 16); Ryan Hendrix, RHP (No. 21); Jared Solomon, RHP (No. 23)


D-backs (Top 30 Prospects)

Pavin Smith, 1B/OF (No. 15) -- With Kole Calhoun expected to open the season on the injured list, Smith, who appeared in 12 games last season, will likely get a chance to show what he can do early on.

Luis Campusano, C (No. 3) -- The Padres love Campusano's bat, and the 22-year-old cracked the roster as a backup.

Tucupita Marcano, INF (No. 6) -- A long shot to make the Opening Day roster, the 21-year-old Marcano just wouldn't stop hitting, and he earned a spot on the roster.

Ryan Weathers, LHP (No. 5) -- After making his debut in the playoffs, nerves shouldn't be a factor for Weathers. Despite not having a clear role, Weathers made the roster and can do a bit of everything.

Rockies (Top 30 Prospects)

Ben Bowden, LHP (No. 15) -- Bowden has pitched well this spring and could be the Rockies' lone lefty option out of the bullpen.

Yonathan Daza, OF (No. 16) -- If Daza makes the team, it will be as a fifth outfielder. Playing time could be tough to come by in the role, so the Rockies may opt to have him start the season at the alternate training site instead.

Jordan Sheffield, RHP (No. 30) -- A Rule-5 pick, Sheffield needs to make the Rockies' roster, or be offered back to the Dodgers.
