2022 Bowman Baseball - Full Prospect Analysis

Bowman 2022 is out this week and my review is below. Over 89 names. Not a ton of pitchers. Overall the checklist is solid. If I passed on someone it usually means they have no power potential or I don't see room for more growth as they are too old. I love this product because there are a ton of projects and guys that have boom/bust potential. 


Aeverson Arteaga - San Francisco Giants SS - Young talent with a ton of upside. A lot to like here.

Ricardo Genoves - San Francisco Giants C - Pass. 

Anthony Rodriguez - San Francisco Giants 3B - The Giants are developing really good prospects these days.


Yan Contreras - Cincinnati Reds SS - Must be injured. No stats since 2019. 

Christian Roa - Cincinnati Reds P - Pass. 

Allan Cerda - Cincinnati Reds OF - Pass. 

Elly De LA Cruz - Cincinnati Reds SS - Nice prospect with boom or bust potential. Worth a small position.

Justice Thompson - Cincinnati Reds OF - Pass.

Michel Triana - Cincinnati Reds 1B - Pass. 


Edgar Quero - Los Angeles Angels C - Pass.

  2. I think the Curtis Mead is a 1st Bowman auto for Tampa Bay. You might want to revisit that one.

  7. Why the pass on Oscar Colas? He is older but has a big bat. Thoughts?

    1. Not a bad prospect but he's 23. His path to MLB has been interesting but too old for my taste.
