Top 50 Update No. 1

Hello all. Before I finish off the last couple OMGs (One More Guys) — just Braves and Blue Jays left, if I’m not mistaken — I want to introduce what I hope will be a new Monday feature: The Top 50 update.

By now, I hope, you’re familiar with our Top 50 Prospects list and how it breaks down. Now it’s time to see how they’re all doing so far.

Yes, I know the sample size is very small, especially since the Minor League season started just last Thursday. Tha t’s why I hope to make this a weekly post with updated stats, along with a Top 50 Player and Pitcher of the Week. So, without further ado…

Top 50 Player of the Week: No. 46 Brett Jackson

The Cubs outfielder has begun his season with Double-A Tennessee with a bang, going 7-for-17 in his first four games. That’s included a triple, a homer, six RBIs and a pair of stolen bases. He’s hit in all four games, three of them of the multi-hit variety. If he keeps that 1.230 OPS up, a trip to Triple-A Iowa can’t be too far off.

Top 50 Pitcher of the week: No. 19 Zach Britton

The Orioles’ young left-hander certainly doesn’t seem overwhelmed by being in the big leagues, does he? His MajorLeague debut came in Tampa on April 3 was a win, when he gave up one run over six innings. His second start, against the red-hot Rangers, handed Texas its first (and only) loss of the season: 7 2/3  more strong innings, no earned runs allowed. Six walks isn’t like him, but chalk that up to being a little jacked up about being in the Majors.

Here’s how the entire Top 50 has fared statistically so far this season:
