Baseball card collectors should be aware of other prospects poised to get their shot at making their respective Major League ball club. Here are a few collectors should know about.
Mike Moustakas: Moustakas is the top prospect in the top-rated Kansas City Royals farm system. Possibly the next young player to join Eric Hosmer in the batting order, the third baseman is ready for the call if the Royals should need him.
Brett Lawrie: Lawrie was sent to Toronto in the off-season Shawn Marcum trade with the Brewers. The Blue Jays top prospect is getting some attention for his offensive production with the Toronto's Triple-A club in Las Vegas.
Lucas Duda: Duda may see some time with the Mets this season due to the injury to Ike Davis. Though Duda's introduction to MLB didn't go near as well as Dee Gordon's, he seems to have found his stroke and is putting up good offensive numbers.
