Number 6: The 2019 Draft Class

Notable Names: 1) Zach Thompson; 2) Tre Fletcher; 3) Andre Pallante; 4) Connor Thomas

This ranking could – and hopefully should – rise in future years but this is ultimately a disappointing class so far. Zach Thompson hasn’t been able to find traction and a return to the bullpen will hopefully include a return to form for him.

Second-round pick Tre Fletcher has already been released and Andre Pallante is the only other member of the draft class to make it to the majors. 

It’s a lackluster class but, like I said, there’s still room for hope.  Pallante could be an important factor in the bullpen and Thompson may still grow into a starter’s role.  And don’t forget Connor Thomas, who had an impressive Fall League.
