2020 Bowman Chrome Baseball - Best Prospects to Buy

2020 Bowman Chrome is set for release and the checklist is out for review.  I have reviewed each prospect on the checklist and my comments are below. Please take a look, provide comments and spread the word about PFC! Overall this checklist was not the best. A number of players are too old or just did not have the upside. There are a few players that I do like that have potential. Links to Ebay have been provided. 

Antonio Cabello - New York Yankees OF - Lot of room for development here. I plan to keep and eye on him. Watch and revisit.  

Andrew Dalquist - Chicago White Sox P - Young but has not played at all yet. Watch and revisit. 

Anthony Garcia - New York Yankees RF - A ton of swing and miss but still young. Watch and revisit. 

Austin Hansen - Houston Astros P - Pass. Too old. 

Alex Speas - Texas Rangers P - Good numbers but a pass for me. 

Austin Shenton - Seattle Mariners 3B - Not a bad player but too old for me. Pass. 

Alex Vesia - Miami Marlins P - Pass. 

Brenton Doyle - Colorado Rockies OF - Pass. 

Brandon Lewis - Los Angeles Dodgers 1B/3B - Pass. Interesting prospect.

  1. What’s your catcher ranking among Gabriel, Ivan and Francisco?

  2. 1.Francisco Alvarez - Young and has upside but there is risk.
    2.Ivan Herrera - Solid overall
    3.Gabriel Moreno - Small position, a little older.

    Catchers can be tough, risky and take longer to develop so small positions may be a good idea for all 3 to be honest.

  3. Bayorn Loa gonna start out very expensive...do you sell if you open one? Tough to sell a good prospect however. Just thinking the price as high as it will be won’t be there long term and you can reinvest later on in him.

    1. I agree. Seems to be a high priced prospect. He has not played and is 17. I would most likely sell.
