Each weekday during the minor-league season, FanGraphs is providing a status update on multiple rookie-eligible players. Note that Age denotes the relevant prospect’s baseball age (i.e. as of July 1st of the current year); Top-15, the prospect’s place on Marc Hulet’s preseason organizational list; and Top-100, that same prospect’s rank on Hulet’s overall top-100 list.
This time around, I bring you tales of three teenagers who really stood out in recent viewings.
Brent Honeywell, RHP, Tampa Bay Rays (Profile)
Level: Rookie-Advanced Age: 19 Top-15: N/A Top-100: N/A
Line: 8 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 10/1 K/BB, 0.00 ERA, 1.58 FIP
Honeywell already looks like a steal with the 72nd pick in the draft.
