Spring Training is in full swing, and some of the game's top prospects are performing quite well on the big league stage. MLB Pipeline's Jim Callis (@JimCallisMLB) and Jonathan Mayo (@jonathanmayo) and Jordan Shusterman of @CespedesBBQ discuss a few top prospects who have stood out in big league camp, including Pittsburgh's Ke'Bryan Hayes, Boston's Michael Chavis, Atlanta's Kyle Wright and Detroit's Daz Cameron and Casey Mize. Then, Jonathan checks in from Arizona with an update from Mariners camp, where some of the new faces like Justus Sheffield are making a strong impression. Next, the guys turn to the 2019 MLB Draft, and discuss how Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman compares to recent No. 1 Draft picks and where Cal first baseman Andrew Vaughn, the best hitter in the Draft, is most likely to be picked. Finally, they touch on a few pitchers who have risen up Draft boards early in the season, including college arms Drey Jameson and Jackson Rutledge and high school right-hander Matthew Allan.
