4. Cody Bellinger, 1b/of, Glendale (Dodgers)
Bellinger’s prospect stock continues to rise as his lean body gains strength, helping his swing work better. He was Glendale’s most productive hitter this fall, producing a .314/.424/.557 slash line, with three home runs in 70 at-bats with 14 walks. With above-average bat speed and plenty of leverage in his swing, Bellinger, 21, projects to eventually have plus power. The consensus among AFL scouts is that his first base defense grades as plus, or even plus-plus, with one observer calling it Gold Glove caliber. His athleticism also plays in center field, where he is an average defender with an average arm.

Well, a comp like this will get your attention.
3. Eloy Jimenez, OF, Mesa (Cubs No. 2): Another precocious 19-year-old, Jimenez wasn’t as spectacular in Arizona as he was when he starred at the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game and won the Class A Midwest League MVP award this summer. Yet he still exhibited as high a power ceiling as any Fall Leaguer, with scouts comparing his upside with Giancarlo Stanton’s.

Taylor Ward, C, Angels
The Angels’ selection of Ward in the first round of the 2015 draft had many industry observers scratching their heads due to concerns about the bat being good enough to make him more than a backup catcher. Though he impressed in the Midwest League during his first pro season, he underwhelmed when he moved up to the high Class A California League this year as his plate approach appeared less advanced than it had before. In addition to handling himself against better pitching in the AFL, he’ll be tasked with refining his receiving skills and improving upon the finer points of game-calling.

1. Surprise Saguaros
Yoan Moncada is the best prospect in baseball. Michael Kopech is one of the best pitching prospects who will be throwing in the desert. Josh Staumont isn’t as good of a prospect but he throws nearly as hard as Kopech. Nick Gordon is one of the better middle infield prospects around and Austin Meadows is nearly big league-ready if he can find a spot in the Pirates outfield.
