Atlantic League Preview

The Atlantic League is considered to be the premier independent baseball league in North America. As the season goes on and organizations sustain minor-league injuries, Atlantic Leaguers are typically among the first to get the chance to join the affiliated ranks. Here are some of the more promising players that will be suiting up in the Atlantic League for the 2019 season. All of these statistics are circa 2018, unless otherwise noted while age and pitching/batting hand are in parentheses. At this point, the vast majority of these guys would be considered “organizational depth,” but the numbers bring with them some level of promise. In the cases of Jon Niese, Christian Friedrich, and Seth Maness, no statistics were included, as they have not pitched more than a small sample size since the 2016 season and are included based on their potential based on previous success. Some notable names who have made the transition from the Atlantic League to the majors over the past decade include Rich Hill, Austin Bibens-Dirkx, Scott Kazmir, Jerome Williams, and Dane De La Rosa.
