Spring Training MLB Prospect Report—March 18, 2021



Boston Red Sox

—No. 3 prospect Bobby Dalbec just keeps adding to his resume. Against the Twins, the 25-year-old third baseman hit his second grand slam and fifth home run of the spring in just 27 at-bats.

Detroit Tigers

—No. 2 prospect Tarik Skubal turned in his third scoreless outing of the spring, striking out six, walking three and allowing a hit in three scoreless innings against the Phillies. The 24-year-old lefthander struggled to put away batters efficiently, throwing 70 pitches. Skubal struggled in his major league debut, but with three above-average or better pitches and above-average control there's reason to believe he will fare better this season.

Los Angeles Angels

—No. 1 prospect Jo Adell singled and drove in two runs against the Mariners. The 21-year-old outfielder has two home runs and five RBIs in 15 at-bats this spring.

Miami Marlins

—No. 4 prospect Jazz Chisholm crushed his second home run, a solo shot to right field that left the bat at 112.7 mph. The 23-year-old has played some second base this spring, but his long-term home is still shortstop, likely beginning in 2022.

Pittsburgh Pirates

—Another day, another hit for No. 1 prospect Ke'Bryan Hayes. The 24-year-old third baseman went 1-for-2 with an RBI, a run scored and a stolen base against the Rays and has 11 hits in 26 at-bats (.423), one home run and five RBIs.

—No. 3 prospect Nick Gonzales collected his first two hits and RBIs of the spring. The seventh overall pick in the 2020 draft from New Mexico State doubled in a run in the sixth inning and singled in a run in the ninth. Gonzales should make his pro debut at a Class A level, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him in Pittsburgh at some point during the  2022 season.

Texas Rangers

—No. 4 prospect Dane Dunning struck out three and allowed one hit in three scoreless innings of work against the Diamondbacks. The 26-year-old righthander should slot into the Rangers' rotation after an impressive 2020 debut with the White Sox.
