2016

2015

Few third base prospects can match Urshela’s proximity to the big leagues. He played 24 games at Double-A Akron and 104 games at Triple-A Columbus last season, more than holding his own with the stick at both levels. He forced a promotion to Triple-A after slashing .300/.347/.567 with five home runs in just 24 games with Akron, and his numbers remained solid after moving up a level. Urshela hit .276/.331/.473 (.289 BABIP) with 13 home runs in 430 plate appearances with Columbus, and appears on the verge of making his big league debut. The incumbent at the hot corner, Lonnie Chisenhall, hit just .218 in the second half in 2014, and if he gets off to a slow start, Urshela figures to get the first crack at replacing him. While he will likely never put up elite power numbers for the position, he could settle in as a middling option there if he is playing every day.
