1B Peter Alonso, New York Mets (BA Prospect Rank: 73)nfl nike jerseys for cheap
College players with a first base-only profile often wind up slipping on draft day, and that was the case with Alonso, who went No. 64 overall to the Mets in 2016.
He’s continued to rake since beginning his pro career, though, posting a 1.012 OPS with 15 home runs and 52 RBI in 65 games at Double-A this season to earn an early promotion to Triple-A.
He’s scuffled since moving up with a .171/.330/.368 line in 21 games, but his hit tool and power give him a chance to be an everyday first baseman at the highest level.
Dominic Smith will likely get the rest of the season to prove himself since the Mets have already fallen out of contention, and he has a top prospect pedigree. But if he continues to struggle, Alonso could be the guy in 2019 and beyond.nike nfl jerseys wholesale cheap

3B Ryan Mountcastle, Baltimore Orioles (BA Prospect Rank: 63)
Whether he’s traded before the deadline or walks in free agency, Manny Machado won’t be playing for the Orioles in 2019.nike nfl cheap jerseys
With that in mind, the O’s could opt to move Tim Beckham back to shortstop next season to open up the everyday third base job for Mountcastle.
While the 21-year-old didn’t have the arm for shortstop, he might be able to hit enough to make it at the hot corner if his .316/.366/.509 line so far this season at Double-A is any indication.
He’s the one position-player prospect in the Baltimore system who looks like a potential everyday player, and he should have little left to prove in the minors by the time the season is over.
ETA: 2019, first half
1B Yordan Alvarez, Houston Astros (BA Prospect Rank: 34)nfl nike jerseys cheap china
Kyle Tucker and Forrest Whitley are always the first two prospects mentioned when it comes to the Houston system, but Alvarez has quickly emerged as a third elite-level prospect.
With a strong 6’5″, 225-pound frame, it’s easy to dream on his middle-of-the-order potential, and he’s already putting up strong numbers in the upper levels of the minors.
The 21-year-old hit .325/.389/.615 with 13 doubles, 12 home runs and 46 RBI in 43 games at Double-A to earn a promotion to Triple-A, and he could join the aforementioned Tucker in Houston before the season is over.
Yuli Gurriel is entrenched as the everyday first baseman, but Alvarez is also capable of playing both corner outfield spots, so he’s not necessarily blocked.nike jerseys nfl cheap
