Samad Taylor has grown his power grade from a 20 before the season to a playable 40 that is looking more like a 50 as he has 12 homers in 178 at-bats for Double-A New Hampshire, vaulting him into the RotoProspects Top 300 at #288. The Blue Jays second baseman has played all over the diamond, so it’s more accurate to call him a super utilityman, but he’s putting up star numbers with a .303/.393/.568 with 46 runs and 17 steals. The former 10th-round pick by the Indians in 2016 is putting up gaudy numbers that makes you think maybe he could get to Toronto faster than more-ballyhooed infielders Jordan Groshans and Austin Martin.
Oswaldo Cabrera jumps into the rankings at #299 after homering from both sides of the plate on Tuesday for Double-A Somerset. The Yankees second base prospect now has 10 homers to go with an .802 OPS. The Yankees farm system is so loaded that he could be dealt later this month with reinforcements needed in New York.
