Bleacher Report’s Top 5-Tool Prospects

Bleacher Report has a look at what they consider each team’s top “5-Tool” Prospect headed into the 2015 season.

Their nominees include Cubs SS Addison Russell, Reds OF Yorman Rodriguez, Brewers MI Luis Sardinas, Pirates 2B Alen Hanson, and Cardinals OF Stephen Piscotty.

From Mike Rosenbaum’s projections for each:

Addison Russell – High on-base guy who will hit doubles and triples. May be a 20/20 guy. Great at charging grounders with a plus arm.

Yorman Rodriguez – Strong arm. Destroys fastballs, but weak on breaking stuff. Might be a 4th outfielder.

Luis Sardinas – Switch-hitter with plus speed. Solid in the field.

Alen Hanson – Switch-hitter with extra-base power, more from the left side. Good fielding, but arm strength limits him to second base.

Stephen Piscotty – Plus arm in right, but lacking the power expected of a corner outfielder. Nice approach at the plate.
