As the 2019 regular season winds down, so does prospect season, for the most part. There will be a handful of names that will be called up for supporting roles, but for all intents and purposes, the best days are behind us. With that, I would like to systematically take a look at what is to come.
Over the next few weeks, I will be breaking down prospects by their impact relative to the standard five scoring categories. In separate breakdowns, I will look hitters by home runs and run-creating potential and then by average and stolen bases. Moving to pitching, I plan to identify the impact starters you will want to know and the ones that may become late-inning weapons.
Next up in our series breaking down the top prospects for 2020 by impact on standard categories are the hitters and runners. These guys can put the bat on the ball or run like the wind. In some cases both. In others, they also have the power stroke I talked about last week.
