Pete Crow-Armstrong is a natural fit for the Future’s Game

Mark Vientos is a possible man to fill out this list, but I’m going to award the honor to Pete Crow-Armstrong. By next season, Vientos should be in Triple-A and possibly even contributing in some ways to the Mets.

Crow-Armstrong, meanwhile, will definitely be in the minor leagues. In pursuit of a spot in next year’s game, he’s helped by the fact that he plays the outfield. The 2022 National League Future’s Game roster will need a couple of outfielders—far more than third basemen.

PCA had an outside chance at actually making this year’s game if not for a spot on the IL after six games played. He hit .417 with St. Lucie and made an early case to wow us in his first professional season.

Like Ginn, Crow-Armstrong’s place in the minor league system could potentially hold him back at least one more season before making his way into the Future’s Game. The rosters typically seem to include players at the lower and higher levels. Crow-Armstrong, who appears destined to start the 2022 campaign in High-A, falls into the former of the two categories.

Needless to say, there are always surprise prospect candidates who have standout seasons that we cannot ignore. Someone, maybe a lesser prospect or just a random minor leaguer, could jump up and claim a spot.
