The Weekly Irish Prospect Report

Bo Naylor, Guardians

Those who follow my work (All the millions) know I’m not normally big on catchers. Bo Naylor is actually a pretty solid hitter with a fairly clear path to the majors. Originally thought of as a hit-first type, he has become a defensive stalwart behind the plate and actually throws out a third of runners on his watch. With the bat coming around now and solid power, you’re looking at the future in Cleveland. Naylor is one injury away from joining his brother Josh at the MLB level.

Maikel Garcia, Royals

I brought Maikel Garcia up on Twitter this past week and several other writers reached out to me telling me he is one of the best-kept secrets right now. That’s why I bring Garcia to you. Go get him. At the AAA level he hit over .400 this week and if Witt wasn’t up, Garcia would likely be the one to get Nicky Lopez DFA’ed (just kidding Nicky.) The Royals will be moving him around the infield and trying him in the outfield once he’s up. We could see Garcia in a few weeks due to injuries or if he keeps tearing the cover off the ball.

Landen Roupp, Giants

Not currently playing and getting ready to go through extended Spring Training Landen Ropp is an intriguing prospect. While not overpowering he has solid control and a devastating breaking ball that forces batters to hit over 50% into the ground for outs. He is building up his strength, but the Giants have a history of getting the best out of pitching so taking a flier on him and playing up the injury would certainly help your cause.

Clayton Beeter, Yankees

Coming over last year in the Joey Gallo trade Beeter has been a new pitcher of sorts. Cutting his ERA in half once he came to the Yankees, he went from an ERA of five to an ERA of close to two. He has the dreaded fastball/slider RP combo, but I think he could be super high leverage in New York and really play a big role as it seems like every Yankee pitcher is on the IL. Watch for Beeter coming up in the coming weeks.
