Those match-ups wouldn’t be competitive without the deep rosters of talent and there were a few notable draft prospects in the middle of the action.

In four games, he went 7-for-13 with two doubles, a home run, six runs scored, four RBIs and two stolen bases, while also turning in a couple web gems in center field with his plus-plus speed.
