#1 – Jorge Alfaro – Alfaro has a cannon of an arm behind the dish, but his receiving ability is not quite there. It is solid, just not yet elite but it could be. At the plate, Alfaro has very good power who can hit plenty of doubles and put together home run numbers in the high-teens to low-20s. He hit .261 at both High-A and Double-A in 2014 but only walked 29 times while striking out 123 times in 121 games. Alfaro has proven he will be able to stick behind the plate and that he can be an offensive weapon at a premier defensive position. He should see a good amount of time at Double-A in 2015, but an improved approach at the plate could earn him a promotion during the season.
