Baseball Prospectus’ new Future Shock column features a few NL Central prospects.
Matt Adams, 1B – STL (AAA)
…after going deep in Thursday’s opener, he hit another on Friday and just missed a third, and after initially getting an off day on Saturday, he ended up providing a pinch-hit three-run shot in the ninth inning.
Jed Bradley, LHP – MIL (High-A)
…struck out seven over 6 1/3 shutout innings while allowing three hits and a walk.
Tony Cingrani, LHP – CIN (High-A)
Making his season debut on Sunday, Cingrani continued to dominate at a much higher level and in one of baseball’s top hitting parks, firing six one-hit innings while striking out five and walking one.
