With professional sports poised to stage a 2020 comeback, we look at some of the best 2020 baseball summer camp rookies to watch.
It’s important to note that with COVID-19 lurking some players may be disabled during this unique 2020 season. This will present opportunities for prospects to play at the major league level that otherwise might have spent 2020 in the minors
First up is Jo Adell. Angel’s manager Joe Maddon was quoted as saying he wanted to see Adell get some more time in the minors. But with the new 60-man player pool rule Adell was added to the Angels’ 60-man player pool. We believe this new 60-man player pool rule will offer distinct opportunities for many young players and Jo Adell tops this list.
If Adell can play well during the summer camp session, it will likely boost confidence with Maddon and should boost immediate appeal with collectors. We’re buying this power prospect chances to see a lift in his collecting value. Buy.
Dylan Carlson. Coming into this year Carlson’s rookie cards were a hot commodity. With the DH rule added to the National League for 2020 there’s fair chance Carlson will see the playing time necessary to show his wares. Click here to see our prior review for Dylan Carlson. Carlson is a solid prospect to invest in.
Clarke Schmidt. Another top New York Yankee prospect. Schmidt looked good in camp before the shutdown and has already flashed his talents with the camp’s re-opening. He pitched two innings with three strikeouts facing a loaded Yankee intra-squad lineup. Schmidt is another prospect we reviewed earlier in 2020. Click to view more.
Joey Bart. Bart is a top catching prospect with San Francisco Giants. Joey Bart is included in the 60-man player pool. And with Buster Posey potentially opting out of the 2020 MLB season an opportunity to play in the majors could be in his 2020 future.
