Peter Alonso Leads MLB Top 10 First Base Prospects

MLB Pipeline released their top 10 first base prospects list, and heading the list is Mets first base prospect Peter Alonso.

Alonso, 24, hit .285/.395/.579 with 36 home runs and 119 RBI in 2018 between Double-A Binghamton and Triple-A Las Vegas.

Alonso leads the list also featuring various first round picks like the Mariners’ Evan White, Rays two-way prospect Brendan McKay, Royals’ Nick Pratto, and Red Sox 2018 first-rounder Triston Casas.

MLB rated Alonso as the prospect among them with the highest power tool with a 60 rating on the 20-80 prospect scale, noting his bat speed and strength, as well as his ability to translate great raw power into game power.

MLB also rated Alonso as the most likely of the group to win the Rookie of the Year award, noting that he has little to prove in the minor leagues. Rays prospect Nathaniel Lowe, Twins prospect Brent Rooker, and Angels prospect Matt Thaiss were all also slated to make their debuts at some point in 2019 by MLB.com.
