Oakland Athletics Top 25 Prospects
Formerly, the A’s have been known for building big league rotations out of talented young prospects, but the system does not reflect that level of depth now. There are plenty of potential impact arms but few with tremendous upside. The A’s will be looking for their minor league position players to lead a new era in Oakland in 2017 and beyond. Names like Matt Chapman, A.J. Puk, and Grant Holmes will be synonymous with the future of this organization. A potential phenom also waits in the wings by the name of Franklin Barreto. Expect players like Renato Nunez, Matt Olson, Frankie Montas, and Bruce Maxwell to provide valuable support to the big league club this year as well.
