The Best 2020 Topps Series 1 Rookies to Watch!

Looking to find those early rookie cards of this years potential young stars? 2020 Topps Series 1 is newly available on the COMC Marketplace! In this article we will look at some of the big name rookies and a few we think have a chance to make a big splash this season.

Yordan Alvarez Card  #276

The obvious player to look for in this year’s Topps Series 1 is Yordan Alvarez. Coming off a 2019 campaign where he was deemed the American League Rookie of the Year. In only 87 games for the Houston Astros, he cranked 27 home runs and batted in 78 runs. With an OPS over 1.000, its safe to say Alvarez is one to watch. The one downside of his game is the number of strikeouts, he will have to try to limit those this upcoming 2020 season.

Aristides Aquino – Card #20

Although a little older than the average rookie, Aristides Aquino has a lot of tools to like. He stands at 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 220 pounds. That’s a lot of potential power and he showed that when he knocked in 19 homeruns in only 56 games played for the Cincinatti Reds. Although he did not hit for a great average, .259, it was a serviceable number and now having a full off season, he should be able to bump it up.

Bo Bichette – Card #78

Bo Bichette did not have your typical rookie issues when it came to getting on base, as he averaged .311 at the plate. At 21 years of age, Bichette has already shown he could be a special shortstop. In the 46 games he appeared in, Bo had 61 hits, stole 4 bases and accounted for 32 runs for the Toronto Blue Jays.

Gavin Lux – Card #292

Gavin does not have as large of a sample size as the rest of the guys mentioned on this list, but he has a lot of tools. He can play both shortstop and second base which makes he a nice versatile piece that the Los Angeles Dodgers can use. Lux is one of the younger guys to have seen some big-league time as he is just 21 years old. With the Dodgers a clear front runner to represent the NL in the World Series, there is a lot to like with this kid.

Nico Hoerner – Card #70

With the loss of Russell Addison, Nico Hoerner has a lot of opportunity to showcase his talent this upcoming season. Don’t be surprised if we see him in the starting lineup after the end of this spring training. A rookie of Nico’s caliber could be just the rejuvenation the cubs need to turn it around from their 3rd place finish in the NL Central in 2019.

Trent Grisham – Card #9

Trent Grisham, formerly known at Trent Clark, was the 15th overall pick in the 2015 draft. Although he has not been explosive like one would assume a first-round pick would be, he has been a solid player so far in his 51 major league games. Also noteworthy is the fact he just turned 23 a few months ago, and he should slot in nicely on an already stacked Milwaukee Brewers team.

Kyle Lewis – Card #64

Kyle Lewis was also put on this list for his small sample size. He was the 11th overall pick in the 2016 draft, and he showed why at the end of last season. In only 18 games with the Seattle Mariners, Lewis belted 6 homeruns, 13 RBIs and accounted for another 10 runs himself. One thing to keep an eye on with Lewis is the amount of strikeouts, but the Mariners should do a good job protecting him in the lineup as the youth movement in Seattle is all about patience.

That’s going to do it for our list, but now we want to hear from you! Let us know in the comments below which rookies you’ll be stashing from 2020 Topps Series 1? Who do you think will stand out as the top rookie in the set? We’d love to hear your thoughts, and we’ll see you again for Series 2 later this year!

10 Prospects to Watch from 2019 Bowman Chrome

Struggling to figure out which 2019 Bowman Chrome prospects to watch out for? Looking for a few potential sleepers this year? We have complied together a list of 10 prospects in the 2019 Bowman Draft product. This list contains everything from first round draft picks to potential sleepers that you may not know about, yet.

1. Adley Rutschman (Orioles) – With being the first overall pick in the 2019 draft, the top spot obviously had to go to Adley. The 6 foot 2, 216-pound catcher from Oregon State was a great pick up for the Baltimore Orioles. With only playing in 37 minor league games in 2019, he blasted 4 home runs, had 26 RBIs’ and added 33 hits. He also caught a combined no-hitter, so he is not lacking on the defensive end either.

2. Greg Jones (Rays)- This may be the most unique player in the draft. Jones is a switch-hitting shortstop that will most likely trend towards being a centerfielder. He is extremely athletic and puts that on display when running the bases as he took him 19 stolen bases in only 48 minor league games. He batted for an average of .335 and an OPS of .874. One thing that he will need to work out his striking out. He totaled 56 strikeouts.

3. Hunter Bishop (Giants)- Drafted 10th overall, Hunter brings in a ton of power batting from the left side of the plate. He is the younger brother of the Seattle Mariners prospect, Braden Bishop. Hunter stands at 6 5’ 210lbs which helped him tally 22 home runs his final season at Arizona State University. He is listed as an outfielder, but his home is centerfield.

4. Braden Shewmake (Braves)- Shewmake is not going to win the eye appeal, but he is going to be a fantastic shortstop for the Atlanta Braves. Unlike the other guys we have named, Braden does not have the big-time power bat. However, in 65 minor league games he was able to keep a .300 batting average, bat in 40 runs and total 74 hits. This kid knows how to hit without power.

5. Josh Jung (Rangers)- A very talented 3rd baseman out of Texas Tech had an outstanding batting average of .316 over the course of his 2019 minor league games (42 games, 2 teams). Jung is a great balance between an all-or-nothing player and all-around good player which makes him a safe bet to someday be a solid pro.

6. Riley Greene (Tigers)- Although drafted 5th overall by the Detroit Tigers, Greene fell on our list simply due age. At 19 years old, it could be awhile before we see him play any Major League Baseball. However, he did have an average to above-average minor league season with a .271 batting average, 60 hits and a .749 OPS. If you’re okay with waiting a few years, Greene is one to watch.

7. Rece Hinds (Reds)- Rece was a mid-2nd round draft pick of the Cincinnati Reds out of IMG Academy. He suffered a quad injury early in the season which limited him to only playing in 3 minor league games. With only being one year out of High School this type of injury should not worry potential Rece Hinds investors. He has plenty of pop in his bat and should put that on display this upcoming season.

8. Matthew Lugo (Red Sox)- A late 2nd round draft-pick out of the Carlos Beltran Baseball Academy, Lugo has endless potential. He is only 18 years old and has shown to have a very strong arm at shortstop. Although not a power hitter, he did post a decent .257 batting average in his 41 minor league games.

9. Tyler Callihan (Reds)- A potential sleeper in the draft, Callihan has shown to have a bright future. With 57 games played in the minors last year, we got a good sample size of what Tyler has to offer. He posted a .263 batting average, .422 slugging percentage an added 6 home runs. He still needs to develop the power which he was scouted to have in High School, but at age 19, he has plenty of time to mold himself.

10. Peyton Burdick (Marlins)- Another sleeper in the draft, Burdick fell to the Miami Marlins in the late 3rd round but has already shown to the other MLB GMs’ that they missed out. Burdick played in 69 minor league games and hit a modest 11 home runs, .308 batting average, .407 OBP and a slugging percentage of .542. These are eye popping numbers for someone to fall almost to the 4th round. Expect to see Peyton in the Majors sooner than later.
