Prospects for the month of May




Drew Romo, C COL Triple-A

38 GP|.350/.366/.561|6 HR,|24 R|29 RBI|2 SB


Pushing quickly up the Rockies’ organizational ladder has been Drew Romo. This season, Romo has been fantastic building off his stellar finish to the season in 2023 at Triple-A Albuquerque. In 38 games played for the Isotopes, Romo has slashed .350/.366/.561 with six home runs, 24 runs scored, 29 RBI, and two stolen bases. Not drawing many walks this season Romo has just a 1.2% walk rate with a 20.7% strikeout rate over 164 plate appearances.

Elias Díaz continues to be solid at the plate for the Rockies but if he spends time on the injured list or gets traded at the deadline, it could be time for the 22-year-old Drew Romo to get his chance.


First Base


Tre’ Morgan, 1B TBR Low-A & High-A

36 GP| .355/.444/.522|3 HR|26 R|20 RBI|10 SB


The former LSU Tiger has taken off in the Rays organization after being drafted in the third round of the 2023 MLB Draft. Tre’ Morgan has a solid first baseman build and could get to above-average power as he continues to develop in the system. Morgan started the season in Low-A Charleston where he played in 26 games, slashing .320/.398/.440 with two home runs, 19 runs scored, 11 RBI, and nine stolen bases with an 8.7% walk rate and a solid 11.3% strikeout rate. Once promoted to High-A Bowling Green, Morgan continued to go off.

In 10 games played, Morgan has slashed .447/.553/.737 with one home run, seven runs scored, nine RBI, and one stolen base with a 16.7% walk rate and just 2.1% strikeout rate over 48 plate appearances. Already in High-A, Morgan has 17 hits with nine of them going for extra bases. Now is the time to buy into a scorching batter in the Rays organization. 


Second Base


Nate Furman, 2B CLE High-A

32 GP|.351/.416/.522|7 HR|31 R|25 RBI|6 SB


Cleveland continues to develop excellent middle infield prospects with advanced hit tools and Nate Furman is quickly rising the rankings. Selected in the fourth round of the 2022 MLB Draft out of UNC Charlotte Furman has found success in High-A Lake County. In 32 games played with the Captains, Fruman slashed .351/.416/.522 with seven home runs, 31 runs scored, 25 RBI, and six stolen bases. Across 149 plate appearances, he has an 8.1% walk percentage with a 17.4% strikeout rate. Scouts have Furman graded out as a plus hit tool paired with double-plus speed though we have yet to see this on the basepaths, Furman did steal 37 bases in 42 attempts in 2023. 




Carson Williams, SS TBR Double-A

38 GP|.305/.392/.571|8 HR|37 R|22 RBI|11 SB


One of the best prospects in the Double-A right now has got to be Carson Williams. The Rays first-round draft pick out of high school back in 2021 has been on fire in Double-A Montgomery. In 38 games played, he has slashed .305/.392/.571 with eight home runs, 37 runs scored, 22 RBI, and 11 stolen bases. Williams needed to cut back the strikeouts based on his performance in High-A back in 2023 as he had a 31.8% strikeout rate. This season, however, Williams has cut it back to a 26.7% strikeout rate while also walking 10.8% across 176 plate appearances.

There is a real chance we see Williams up with the Rays before the season is over and it’s not hard to see some Gunnar Henderson similarities in their games.


Third Base


Jesus Rodriguez, 3B/C NYY High-A

40 GP|.325/.399/.510|5 HR|29 R|23 RBI|4 SB


Crushing the ball in High-A Hudson Valley this season has been Jesus Rodriguez. The Renegades have been splitting Rodriguez’s time between catcher and third base so far this season with excellent results with the bat. In 40 games played, Rodriguez has slashed .325/.399/.510 with five home runs, 29 runs scored, 23 RBI, and four stolen bases.

When it comes to his eye at the plate, Rodriguez has stayed true to his approach since day one in the Yankees organization. In 178 plate appearances, Rodriguez is walking 10.7% while striking out 15.7% of the time. This is a prospect that is not being talked about enough given the steady success he has had to this point in his minor league career. The time to stash is now. 




Chandler Simpson, OF TBR High-A & Double-A

38 GP|.376/.437/.389|0 HR|39 R|12 RBI|39 SB


Who doesn’t love speed on the basepaths and running down fly balls in the outfield?

Chandler Simpson might just be the fastest player in the minor leagues and is showing it between High-A and Double-A this year. Runner up (no pun intended) to Victor Scott II last season in stolen bases with 94, Simpson is bound to break it this season. In 38 combined games played this season Simpson has slashed .376/.437/.389 with zero home runs, 39 runs scored, 12 RBI, and 39 stolen bases. Across 147 plate appearances back in High-A Simpson was walking 10.2% while striking out 10.9%, showing excellent plate discipline.

This is definitely a prospect to monitor this season as a bump to Triple-A Durham is not out of the question for the 23-year-old Simpson sprinting to the major leagues. 


Starting Pitcher


Matt Wilkinson, LHP CLE Low-A & High-A

9 GS|45.1 IP|79 K|15.7 K/9|1.8 BB/9|1.59 ERA


The “Tugboat” has left the High-A dock after dominating to this point in the season. Matt Wilkinson was the 10th-round selection by the Guardians out of Central Arizona College in the 2023 MLB Draft. In High-A Lynchburg Wilkinson struck out 71 batters over 40.1 innings pitched, good for a 15.84 K/9 with a .159 average against, and finished the level with a 1.12 ERA. The promotion to High-A Lake County was long overdue and in his first start with the Captains, Wilkinson went five innings with three earned runs on four hits and struck out eight batters.

We will see how Wilkinson adjusts to advanced batters in High-A, but the command and control stick out early on for the left-hander.


Relief Pitcher


Saul Teran, RHP PHI Low-A

12 GP|14.1 IP|22 K|13.81 K/9|5.65 BB/9|0.63 ERA|7 SV


One of the minor league leaders in saves this season so far has been Phillies right-hander Saul Teran. The 22-year-old Teran has made 12 appearances in Single-A, striking out 22 batters across 14.1 innings pitched, good for a 13.81 K/9 with a .200 average against and has a solid 0.63 ERA.

Currently, Teran has locked down seven saves to this point in the season making him an interesting deep-league stash. 


Honorable Mentions


Owen Murphy, RHP ATL High-A

7 GS|41 IP|60 K|13.17 K/9|2.63 BB/9|1.54 ERA


It’s been a strong start to the season for Owen Murphy who was the Braves’ first-round draft pick in 2022. Across seven starts for High-A Rome, Murphy has 60 strikeouts over 41 innings pitched, good for a 13.17 K/9 with a 2.63 BB/9, and.127 average against, Murphy is currently sporting a solid 1.54 ERA.

Murphy’s fastball velocity has ticked up this season and with the slider and curveball finding more success and movement the Braves could promote the 20-year-old Murphy to Double-A Mississippi by the All-Star break. 


Zebby Matthews, RHP MIN High-A & Double-A

7 GS|40.1 IP|51 K|11.4 K/9|0.2 BB/9|1.34 ERA


One of the best control artists in the minor leagues has been Zebby Matthews. The Twins drafted Matthews in the eighth round of the 2022 MLB Draft out of Western Carolina. Standing 6’5” and 225 pounds Matthews has been a force on the mound in Double-A Wichita. Across seven starts, Matthews has struck out 51 batters over 40.1 innings pitched, good for an 11.4 K/9 with only one walk this season, and is sporting a 1.34 ERA.

With only three starts in Double-A so far, Matthews will probably stick around for a few more starts, but with this level of production and control, Triple-A might not be far off.


Colby Thomas, OF OAK Double-A

42 GP|.272/.319/.549|12 HR|24 R|36 RBI|10 SB


Colby Thomas continues to produce in Double-A this season as he pushes for a promotion to Triple-A Las Vegas. In 42 games played, Thomas has slashed .272/.319/.549 with 12 home runs, 24 runs scored, 36 RBI, and 10 stolen bases in 11 attempts. Across 188 plate appearances, Thomas is walking 4.8% and striking out 19.1% of the time. Thomas has been hitting the ball with authority of his 47 total hits 23 are for extra bases.


E.J. Exposito, 2B/SS ATL High-A

34 GP|.301/.374/.602|9 HR|24 R|24 RBI|12 SB


The 23-year-old E.J. Exposito has been solid this year in High-A Rome. The 16th-round pick by the Braves in 2022 out of Long Island University is showing off an advanced approach at the plate. In 34 games played, Exposito has slashed .301/.374/.602 with nine home runs, 24 runs and RBI scored, and 12 stolen bases. Across 139 plate appearances, he is walking 10.8% while striking out 23.7% of the time.
