Baseball America Spring Training Prospect Report -- Feb. 27, 2020



Wednesday's Stars

Jarren Duran, OF, Red Sox — The level of competition in spring training games is highly variable, but Duran did his damage against one of the top pitching prospects in baseball. He went 2-for-3 and hit a home run off Mitch Keller, the No. 1 prospect in the Pirates system. Duran is known more for his speed—he’s one of the fastest players in the minors, with 46 steals a year ago—and could be big league ready by the end of the 2020 season.

Dylan Carlson, OF, Cardinals — One of the most well-rounded outfielders in the minors, Carlson went 2-for-2 with a double and a triple for his first two extra-base hits of the spring. Carlson draws offensive comparisons to a switch-hitting version of Andre Ethier and Michael Conforto, with smooth hitting actions and good barrel awareness.

Lewin Diaz, 1B, Marlins — Diaz blasted 27 home runs last year and connected for his first spring training homer yesterday. Miami’s No. 7 prospect, Diaz has plus raw power from the left side and is more than just a one-dimensional slugger with good bat-to-ball skills especially a 6-foot-4 hitter.

Trevor Larnach, OF, Twins — Minnesota’s No. 3 prospect and 2018 first-round pick, Larnach walked and launched his second home run of spring training. Even after a strong first full season last year, Larnach is still just starting to fully tap into his power, with the potential to develop into an above-average regular corner outfielder.

Nolan Gorman, 3B, Cardinals — Gorman, the No. 2 prospect in the Cardinals system, went 3-for-5 with a double against the Marlins. Known for plus-plus raw power that comes with the tradeoff of a high strikeout rate, Gorman has struck out only once through 12 spring training plate appearances.
