Wednesday was national signing day for college football programs, and also two of MLB Pipeline’s Best 50 Draft Prospects were part of the news. Fivestar running back Jerrion Ealy, who’s also a Mississippi high school outfielder who ranks No. 18 on our list, officially declared with Mississippi after previously decommitting from the Rebels and seeming to be led to Clemson. Four-star cornerback Maurice Hampton, a Tennessee prep outfielder who ranks No. 27 to the very best 50, officially secured his longtime commitment to Louisiana State.

Ealy and Hampton, who plan should they make it to college to play sports, are two of 4 players to earn Under Armour All-America honors in soccer and baseball. Kyler Murray, the No. 9 overall selection in the 2018 MLB Draft who could move higher in the upcoming NFL Draft after winning the Heisman Trophy being an Oklahoma quarterback, first accomplished the feat 2014. A.J. Brown, who centered on football at Mississippi and might possibly be one of the very first wide receivers selected in the 2019 NFL Draft, followed him in 2015.

Tweet from @supersoxfan79: Who do you think can lead each little league degree in homeruns in 2019?

Wonderful question! Listed below are my best guesses the full-season levels for each:

He offered the very ideal power from the 2018 Draft and led all players selected last June with 17 homers in his pro debut.

He topped Rookie leaguers with 20 homers in his 2017 introduction and led class-a hitters with 3-4 bombs last year.

He returned out of a one-year lay off following Tommy John surgery to pace the Minors with 44 doubles and 71 extra-base hits in 2018, and also more of these two-baggers should turn into homers (he struck 20 last year) at 2019.

Recently as an expert, he has placed fourth at Rookie ball (16 homers at 20-16 ), third in Class A higher level (27 at 2017) and in double a (2-9 at 2018).

Incase you were wondering, one other full-season leaders a year ago were Reds first baseman Ibandel Isabel with 3-6 in class-a higher level and Angels outfielder Jabari Blash with 28 at Triple-A. For over this particular question, take a look at the video at the top of this Inbox.

Tweet from @steve_dakota: How do you Find the Rays prospective IF vibration out between Adames,Franco,Brujan, along with Fox? Brujan to CF?

The Rays are filled with talent that was in field. You will find just five Tampa Bay prospects on our Top 10 Position lists: Nate Lowe and Brendan McKay at first foundation, Vidal Brujan along with Brandon Low E at 2nd base plus Wander”Vladimir Guerrero III” Franco at Short Stop. Willy Adames has recently graduated to the major leagues, plus they do will have significantly more attractive middle-infield leads in Lucius Fox, Nick Solak, Taylor Walls along with Tyler Frank.

I really believe that will become his primary role in Tampa Bay and McKay is currently going to create as a pitcher. It’s easy to earn room by putting Brujan in centre field, however, also the Rays’ best defensive alignment would keep twotime Gold Glover Kevin Kiermaier in conjunction with Adames at short, Brujan at moment, Franco at dawn and Nate Lowe initially. That would leave Brandon Lowe playing a Ben Zobrist function and rebounding between 2nd base and the outfield.

Tweet from @Nick_Horack97: How would you ideally envision the blue jays working out their in field later on if most of Warmoth/Bichette/Smith/Guerrero along with Guerriel Jr become MLB caliber players?

Sticking with the theme of American League East infields, the Blue Jays are just a bit more difficult to project as a result of uncertainty that is defensive. Third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. could be the best chance in baseball and Bo Bichette isn’t much behind, but are they really good to stay at their existing rankings?

If I’m attempting to have the bats in the lineup whilst not ignoring defense, I would play with Jordan Groshans in the dawn, Bichette at moment, Kevin Smith at short stop and Guerrero initially base. I had move big-leaguer Lourdes Gurriel Jr.. Around different places to make use of his offensive ability, while Cavan Biggio might have to seek out playing time at the outfield.

Tweet from @Gbradley85: Is the hype surrounding Kristian Robison real? If yes, Where does one find him?

A Bahamian outfielder whom the D backs signed for $2.5 million in 2017, Robinson comes with a fantastic package of tools. He has a chance and also massive raw power, also speed, arm strength to complement. He batted .279/.363/.428 with seven homers and 12 spanned between 2 Rookie championships like a 17-year-old which makes his pro debut .

Robinson intrigues me so much that I required him No. 1 overall if Jonathan Mayo and that I drafted players who couldn’t crack MLB Pipeline’s brand new Top 100 Prospects list from the latest variant of the Pipeline Podcast. He didn’t miss by much of course should he adds some polish this year Class A, he can jump into the top half of next year 100. I guess he will combine the 2019 list during the entire year at some point.
