Vladimir Guerrero Jr. finished his minor league career with a slash line of .331/.413/.531 and also got more walks (150) than strikeouts (139). Last season in AA, he batted .402 in 61 games and finished the 2018 season with an absolute ridiculous .381/.437/.636 which garnered him Minor League player of the year. Now, with Vladdy Jr. done in the minors, here are some prospects that could receive a lot of hype before their major league debut.

Bo Bichette - SS Toronto Blue Jays

2

Wander Franco- 3B Tampa Bay Rays

Franco is only 18 years old and has absolutely raked in the minors. Currently in single-A, Franco has slashed .347/.418/.594 over his brief minor league career and has more walks (38) than strikeouts (26).
