Prospects Plus: Crabbing for Prospects

A new season of Lakewood Blueclaws baseball is now here and again the family and I have a ticket package. Last night, we took in the Claws exhibition game vs. Brookdale Community College. While the game was a blow out, it did make me think of a couple of prospects that I want to keep my eye on this year.

  • Cord Sandberg: the former Mississippi State QB commit is one of the more interesting players on the blueclaws. During the exhibition game he showed a sweet left handed swing with doubles powered. 
  • Rhys Hoskins: the power hitting first basemen is not listed in Baseball America top 30 Phillies prospects. During the game Hoskins hit a monster home run. 
  • Deivi Grullon: the 13th ranked player in the Phillies system. Grullon hit a huge home run during the game. Baseball America considers him a high risk/high reward. 
  • Carlos Tocci: Tocci is back in Lakewood for a third straight year. This could be the biggest season of his career. Tocci needs a strong season or his career might be in jeopardy.
