In this edition of #CardSTOCK , we’ve got five of the game’s youngest and most flat out fun players to watch play the game. All of these players are under the age of 22 (and only 19(!!!) in the case of Juan Soto), and are already contributing to their respective organizations in a big way. Let’s take a look at what each of these five have done through the first three months of the season:

Ronald Acuna: Sidelined by injury, but provided a major spark to the Brave’s early season including 5 home runs in 117 at bats before being sidelined to injury. Will be a catalyst in helping push the Braves towards the postseason down the stretch.

Rafael Devers: Holding his own in an absolutely stacked Red Sox lineup. His infectious smile is making him a fan favorite among the Boston faithful.

Gleyber Torres: Doing it all under the bright lights of Yankees Stadium. Launching bombs and hitting for average as a welcome addition to the Baby Bombers. Earned his first All-Star nod in 2018, but missed the game due to injury.

Eloy Jimenez: The #4 overall prospect in baseball (rated by Baseball America) is making waves in Triple A. His impending arrival to the White Sox will be another weapon for a young team on the rise.

Juan Soto: When you’re breaking records set by Bryce Harper for the Nationals, you’re doing something right. Hitting for average and power while maintaining a close to 1:1 ratio in walks to strikeouts. All under the age of 20. Whew.

These are the players who’s consistent and above average play on the field often does not translate to the same amount of love in the hobby that their more popular counterparts receive. Or perhaps they play in a smaller market, where they are beloved locally, but fail to register in the national spotlight until they’re helping their team defeat your favorite team.
