Whether you're busting packs, boxes, or cases, here are some key players that you should keep an eye out for when opening 2012 Bowman Baseball:
Dante Bichette Jr., New York Yankees
Chosen in the second round of the 2011 MLB Draft by the New York Yankees, Bichette handled his first taste of Minor League Baseball well batting, .335 in 54 games in 2011. The son of former major leaguer Dante Bichette, he is off to a slow start in 2012 but is fully capable of righting the ship to get back on track.
Xander Bogaerts, Boston Red Sox
Signed by the Red Sox in 2009, Bogaerts is one of the top prospects in Boston's farm system. The Aruba native plays shortstop and has the tools to stay at the position at the major-league level. Xander has a twin brother, Jair, who is also in the Red Sox farm system.
Jackie Bradley Jr., Boston Red Sox
Selected 40th overall by the Boston Red Sox in the 2011 MLB Draft, Bradley is off to a great start at Class A Advanced Salem. Through 24 games, Bradley is batting .360 with a .470 on base percentage. Bradley has also walked more times than he has struck out.
Gerrit Cole, Pittsburgh Pirates
Gerrit Cole is projected to become a front-of-the-rotation starter. The first overall pick in the 2011 MLB Draft, the 6'4" right hander from UCLA has been solid at Single-A Advanced Bradenton. In just 23 innings pitched, Cole has racked up 29 strikeouts and currently has a 3.52 ERA.
Danny Hultzen, Seattle Mariners
So far, Danny Hultzen has been impressive for the Jackson Generals, the Mariners AA club. The southpaw pitcher has pitched better than his 2-2 record indicates,with 30 strikeouts in 26.1 innings. Hultzen's 2.05 ERA is a better barometer of his talent. The pitcher was picked second overall in the 2011 draft.
Anthony Rendon, Washington Nationals
Selected sixth overall by the Washington Nationals in 2011, Rendon has drawn comparisons to Rays third baseman Evan Longoria. Rendon's resume is full of accolades and honors from his playing time at Rice. However, he has already suffered injuries. Rendon has the talent to be a Major League All-Star if he can stay healthy.
