Baseball America Prospect Report—April 28, 2021

Atlanta Braves

—For the second time in 11 career starts, No. 2 prospect Ian Anderson pitched seven innings of one-hit ball. The 22-year-old righthander stifled Cubs hitters, striking out eight and walking just one while getting 17 swings and misses, including seven each with his fastball (95.2 mph average) and changeup.

Boston Red Sox

—No. 3 prospect Bobby Dalbec crushed his first home run of the year at 105.2 mph off the bat against the Mets. The 25-year-old corner infielder has 15 hits in 61 at-bats (.246), five RBIs and four doubles.

Miami Marlins

—No. 4 prospect Jazz Chisholm singled in his lone at-bat and stole a base, but left the game due to a strained left hamstring. The 23-year-old second baseman has electrified this season, with a .290/.375/.551 slash line, four home runs, 11 runs scored and seven stolen bases.

Minnesota Twins

—After starting the season 0-for-14, No. 1 prospect Alex Kirilloff has collected hits in back-to-back games. The 23-year-old first baseman/right fielder drove in his first career RBI with a single in the second inning against the Indians, finishing the day 1-for-4. Kirilloff was sent down to the alternate training site on April 14, but has started the last five games since his return to the big leagues on April 23.

St. Louis Cardinals

—In his last five games, No. 1 prospect Dylan Carlson is 9-for-19, with his latest showing a 2-for-4 day with two runs scored against the Phillies. The 23-year-old outfielder is hitting .303/.393/.526 with three home runs and 13 RBIs.
