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.
