Default Who Has Your Eye? Prospecting

Wondering who people have been following on the board. Let's stick to players who aren't brand names and in the majors already. Here's who I like:

Jesus Luzardo - surprised he doesn't get any hype at all
Tyler Freeman - 71 hits in 47 games batting 388 at 19
Blake Rutherford - still a believer

Luis Basabe- he's raking in the minors. Underrated because of some other players, but he's gonna be big time.

What's with every card including his middle name (Alexander)?

He’s got a twin brother, Luis Alejandro Basabe. Alexander is the better of the two, if memory serves. When the Red Sox traded Alejandro to the Diamondbacks, it was said they got the “wrong” brother...

Just noticed Luzardo was promoted to AAA. Should get to see him in action down the stretch. A's could use him.

You would think if the parents were going that route they would at least have differentiated more between the middle names. Yikes.

Or follow George Foreman’s naming theory...

I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Rougned Odor's brother is also named Rougned Odor.

Yes I remember earlier this year they were on the same field for the first time as the younger Odor did a tryout or something like that. It was a nice story. Baby brother played SS while the elder Odor played his usual 2B. Their middle names were quite different though as I recall.
