- Nick Ahmed (Arizona Diamondbacks)– Springfield, MA
The 24 year old Ahmed has only 19 Major League games under his belt but he has the potential to develop into a very solid shortstop. A native of Springfield, Massachusetts, he has slashed just .228/.254/.316 but that’s likely no indication of his future potential. Throughout his Minor League career, he has been a .268/.332/.375 hitter and has averaged 24 stolen bases per season, including an impressive 91 games with Triple-A Reno this season which saw him hit .315/.375/.419. He doesn’t have the highest ceiling in the world but he has the potential to be at least an average Major League shortstop in his career.
