Stephen Piscotty – St. Louis Cardinals, OF

Is it just us or do the Cardinals always seem to have somebody in the ROY mix every year? Needless to say, the organization has high hopes for this five-tool talent.

Yasmany Tomas – Arizona Diamondbacks, OF

This year’s breakout former Cuban National Team star will be Tomas.

Key Cards: Best is yet to come but his top initial cards are in 2015 Donruss Baseball

Mark Appel – Houston Astros, P

Despite having a less than acceptable season in 2014, the former number one MLB Draft Pick is expected to have a bounce back year. He has the talent to be the organization’s ace for the considerable future.

Henry Owens – Boston Red Sox, P

A gifted lefty with great natural talent, it’s only a matter of time before he takes over the Red Sox number one position in the pitching rotation.

Carlos Rodon – Chicago White Sox, P

The scouts at Bowman missed the high ceiling of pitcher, Carlos Rodon. Consequently he has no typical pre-Rookie cards from the brand. A good start to his career will mean an upside to 2015 Baseball products as a whole, in which he will be a true RC much like Albert Pujols and Ichiro Suzuki in 2001.

Key Cards: 2014 Leaf Trinity and 2013 Panini USA Champions

Joc Pederson – Los Angeles Dodgers, OF

Fitting him in the lineup is the onlything holding Pederson back from being a top talent in the majors. The Dodgers have the luxury of depth at the position but need to play him at the big league level.

Archie Bradley – Arizona Diamondbacks, P

If Bradley can overcome the recurring injury bug he has been prone to, he has all the talent in the world to be an ace.

Francisco Lindor – Cleveland Indians, SS

Prototypical of an old school shortstop, Lindor has great speed, the ability to use it by getting on base and is considered to be the most sure-handed at his position in the entire minor league system.

Addison Russell – Chicago Cubs, IF

The depth of the Chicago Cubs Top 100 Prospects is unbelievable with Javier Baez, Kris Bryant and Addison Russel all making the list. His natural position is shortstop but is versatile enough to play other positions which may be necessary to fit him in the lineup.

Kris Bryant – Chicago Cubs, 3B

What can you say about the game’s top prospect you haven’t already heard. The hopes of Cubs Nation for a long awaited World Series Championship will live or die based partially upon Bryant’s ability to live up to his potential and the fan base’s expectations.
