MLB The Show 18 Best Prospect Center Fielders
Aside from Mike Trout, there are no center fielders rated higher than an 86 overall to start MLB The Show 18. Because of that, you’re going to want to pick up one of these young players and grow them, with the hope that they can become the next superstar centerfield. Here are the top five centerfield prospects that you should be looking at in MLB The Show 18.
|Toescar Hernandez||Blue Jays||25||75||A|
|Bradley Zimmer||Cleveland Indians||25||70||A|
|Lewis Brinson||Miami Marlins||23||72||A|
|Victor Robles||Washington Nationals||20||65||A|
|Ian Happ||Chicago Cubs||23||76||A|
Best Prospect Center Fielders - Toescar Hernandez - Blue Jays Organization
After being traded to the Blue Jays from the Astros last July, Hernandez did fairly well during his September call-up, hitting 8 home runs, and driving in 20 runs in 28 games. He’s currently behind Kevin Pillar on Toronto’s depth charts, but he’s got attributes that can play right now, and you could possibly start him in left field if you’re running the Blue Jays. His combination of 71 Fielding, 80 Reaction and 73 Speed will allow him to cover a lot of ground in the Rogers Centre outfield.
Best Prospect Center Fielders - Bradley Zimmer - Cleveland Indians Organization
For the next year or so, Zimmer is going to be the Indians’ fourth outfielder. He’s currently behind, 37 year old, Rajai Davis and Tyler Naquin on the depth chart. However, you should consider starting Zimmer in right field, or just as an all-around late inning defensive replacement, due to his very good combination of 76 Fielding, 75 Reaction, and 84 Speed.
Best Prospect Center Fielders - Lewis Brinson - Miami Marlins Organization
Brinson is major league ready right now. At 72 overall, that’s not really saying much about the Marlins roster, but he can easily start at one of the corner outfield positions now, while you wait for Cameron Maybin to move along. Lewis has good hitting attributes, specifically against left-handed pitchers with 59 Con vs L, and 58 Pow vs L, and his 84 Speed should allow him to start stealing some bags for you.
Best Prospect Center Fielders - Victor Robles - Washington Nationals Organization
The Nationals actually have three center fielders with A Potential in Brian Goodwin, Steven Piedra and Robles. At only 20 years old, and depending on what happens with Bryce Harper, Robles could find himself starting in the Nationals outfield sooner than later. He already has great Speed (79), and good contact numbers (53 Con vs R, 57 Con vs L) that should land him near the top of the Nationals lineup as he progresses.
Best Prospect Center Fielders - Ian Happ - Chicago Cubs Organization
Versatility is the name of the game with Happ. He is essentially the evolution of Ben Zobrist, who is also on this Cubs team. He will start in centerfield for the Cubs, but could easily start at any outfield position if you look to bring someone else in. He has good Contact numbers (55 vs R, 58 vs L) and some pretty good Power as well (82 vs R, 67 vs L) and his Speed (74) makes him the kind of super-utility player any team could use.
