2021 Bowman Chrome Baseball - Full Prospect Analysis

Hello Readers. 2021 Bowman Chrome is now out and overall they have produced a solid checklist. Although there are a ton of names I think there is some value here. I organized the names by teams for break purposes. I just cannot recommend any pitchers this year. The upside is just not there in my opinion. A lot of these players are young so you might want to wait for more plate appearances before purchasing. Most of the hitters I passed on were too old for my liking or had no power potential. 


Rays, Padres, Cubs, Brewers are my favorite teams for breaks. 


Carlos Colmenarez - SS (Rays) - A top international signing w power and speed. Stud.

Tanner Murray - SS/3B (Rays) - Pass. 

Pedro Martinez - SS/2B/3B (Rays) - Pass.


Kevin Made - SS (Cubs) – Needs to walk more but hits a ton of doubles. More of a watch but I get it if you buy in now.

Ethan Hearn - C (Cubs) – Pass. 

Koen Moreno - RHP (Cubs) - Pass.

Cristian Hernandez - SS (Cubs) – Another stud. Will be highly sought after.

Christopher Morel - 3B/OF (Cubs) – High K rate but I love the power. I am willing to take a chance. 

Rafael Morel - SS (Cubs) – A player that I will watch. 

Yohendrick Pinango - OF (Cubs) - Pass. No pop.


Pedro Leon - SS/OF (Astros) – A little older for my taste but the talent is legit.

J.C. Correa - SS/3B (Astros) - Nice player but 22 and that may be too old for some people unless you are flipping.


Reginald Preciado - 3B/SS (Padres) – On the Cubs. Solid player. Good talent.

Victor Acosta - SS (Padres) - Decent prospect with room to improve. Has a little pop.

Eguy Rosario - 2B/SS/3B (Padres) – Awesome talent with a ton of tools.

Jordy Barley - SS (Padres) – On the Nationals but a watch. 

Jagger Haynes - LHP (Padres) - Pass.

Carson Taylor - C (Dodgers) - Pass.

Helcris Olivares - LHP (Rockies) - Pass.

  4. Thanks for your analysis. Are currently higher on Mieses or Ramos for White Sox prospects?

  5. Hello Elkrunner. Happy to help. I am higher on Ramos b/c he is younger. Love Luis but I need to see the walks improve. He has pop.
