A Look At Lexington's Best Prospects

I would be remiss if I didn't point you to the couple of articles that Zachary Levine wrote about the Astros young core of talent that is currently in A ball with the Lexington Legends. Profiled are Delino DeShields Jr., Tanner Bushue, and Jiovanni Mier.

Overall, DeShields had a breathtaking game in that when you finish reading his line, you're out of breath.

Leading off and playing second base, he was 2-for-3 with two runs scored, two RBIs, a home run, a sacrifice fly, two stolen bases, a caught stealing and was picked off once.

It was just a first impression, so don't take too much from this, and I look forward to talking with him in the next couple of days. But he played the game with - appropriately for his new Kentucky home - unbridled speed.

I'm not optimistic about prospects as a general rule until they get much higher up the ladder, but Mier seems to have really turned it around after his down year last season. DeShields looks like he's more exciting to watch and less effective player at this point, but those things could definitely change as he gets more time and experience. It's an exciting time to be a Legends fan, at least. That's more than you could say in some recent years.
