Yankees Prospect Greg Bird Wins Arizona Fall League MVP

Yankees prospect Greg Bird is making a name for himself this offseason, winning MVP honors in the AFL as well as the Fall Stars Game.

Topping the AFL with 6 HR, finishing second with 21 RBI, and batting .313 was enough for the 22-year old to take home the 2014 Joe Black Award.

Does this award predict future success?  Well, previous winners include Kris Bryant, Nolan Arenado, Tommy Hanson, and Dustin Ackley, all of whom have/had Bowman Chrome prospect autographs that are/were in the high end spectrum at one point or another.

I think we can reasonably assume Bird will get a bump in pricing, and it has already begun, but I think he is still a good buy.
