MLB The Show 18 Best Prospect Right Fielders
Odds are, if you’re not the Red Sox, Yankees or Nationals, you’re either looking for a right fielder, or looking at replacing your aging one in the near future. Here are some prospects that could be the next big thing for you in right field.
|Nomar Mazara||Texas Rangers||22||76||A|
|Derek Fisher||Houston Astros||24||59||A|
|Luther Kershner||Washington Nationals||19||55||A|
|Nick Williams||Philadelphia Phillies||24||71||A|
|Bryan Valdez||San Diego Padres||25||53||A|
Best Prospect Right Fielders - Nomar Mazara - Texas Rangers Organization
Mazara is going to have a spot in the Rangers’ lineup for years to come. He’s currently behind Shin-Soo Choo on the Rangers’ right field depth chart, but you can just start him in left until Choo leaves or retires. Nomar already has some good batting attributes, specifically against right-handed pitchers, 68 Con vs R, 66 Pow vs L, and good Plate Vision (65), and a strong arm (78 Arm Strength).
Best Prospect Right Fielders - Derek Fisher - Houston Astros Organization
At 24 years old, Fisher’s main talent right now is his 84 Speed. As he on continues to grow, his Power attributes (49 vs R, 42 vs L) should continue to grow and make him a valuable fourth or fifth outfielder until Josh Reddick leaves the team.
Best Prospect Right Fielders - Luther Kershner - Washington Nationals Organization
If you’re taking over the Nationals, you’re first priority is to deal with what you’re going to do with Bryce Harper. If you’re going to move him, or lose him, you might be OK after a few years, when 19 year old Kershner gets to the big leagues. Already showing great ability on the basepaths with 81 Speed, 90 Stealing, as well as good Contact numbers (51 vs R, 50 vs L), he should be joining, center field prospect, Victor Robles, at the top of the Nats lineup for a long time to come.
Best Prospect Right Fielders - Nick Williams - Philadelphia Phillies Organization
Williams starts as the Phillies right fielder, and there is no one even close to contesting him. With 72 Con vs R and 62 Con vs L, he’s ready to swing the stick, and once he makes contact, he’s off to the races with his 83 Speed. The only downside to him is his 2 Stealing rating, which means he’s going to get bad jumps and his speed might be wasted. Look for him to take extra bases on hits, but not in steal situations.
Best Prospect Right Fielders - Bryan Valdez - San Diego Padres Organization
It’s going to take a year or so for Valdez to rise through the Padres ranks, but when he gets there he should be pretty good. Currently at 43 Con vs L and 46 Pow vs L, he might be able to step into a platoon fairly soon, and his 78 Speed and 77 Stealing should make him into a pretty good threat once he gets on base.
