Michael Conforto, OF, Double-A Binghamton:
Conforto checked in at No. 15 on the list, the third-highest outfielder, one spot behind Bradley Zimmer of the Indians.
Since tearing up the Florida State League and starting off hot after being promoted to Binghamton, Conforto has slowed a bit. However, he’s still hitting an impressive .312/.394/.475 with three home runs and 21 RBI in Double-A.
Last year’s 10th overall draft pick, Conforto will be up in the near future, but it might not be this season.
Once Conforto, 22, arrives, he profiles as someone who will hit for high average, reach base at a high clip, and hit 20 or so home runs during his prime. His outfield defense, which was once thought to be a concern, is now viewed as average.
