Watch List: 2017

4559--Diamond-Prospects-Watch-ListEach year DP follows the top players from a year ago combined with who has jumped on the radar throughout this spring and the list normally gets extended as the games pile up. This is the third installment to a list that has grown as numbers were deserving. That's the fun of baseball and the eventual value of keeping tabs on familiar and new names too, especially for those that put some stock in stats!
