2015

Selected out of college with the 11th pick of the 2014 draft, Pentecost was the first true catching prospect off the board. He has an impressive line-drive stroke, with the ability to spray the ball to all fields. It is unlikely, however, that he will ever be much of a home-run threat. In a brief stint at short-season ball last year, he slashed .313/.322/.410 with no home runs and two steals in 87 plate appearances. While he did not hit any over the fence, Pentecost had three triples in just 19 games, which illustrates his impressive speed, relative to his position. Pentecost might actually be a better contributor in steals than home runs in the big leagues, which is a unique, yet valuable skill set for a catcher. Unfortunately, he probably won't make it to the majors until 2019, so extreme patience is required to own him in dynasty leagues.
