These are players who we believe are flying under the radar and have the potential to make a significant impact at the Major League level.

Either way, we believe all five of these players have what it takes to one day be big leaguers, and we’re excited to see how they develop over the next few years.
The top 5 breakout prospects
There are always prospects who emerge from the pack and become top prospects Here are five breakout prospects for the 2019 season:
1. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., 3B, Toronto Blue Jays The son of a Hall of Famer, Guerrero Jr. lived up to the hype in his first full season of pro ball, hitting .381/.437/.636 with 20 home runs in 95 games between High-A andDouble-A. He’s now the consensus top prospect in baseball and should be up with the Blue Jays at some point this season.
2. Fernando Tatis Jr., SS, San Diego Padres Tatis Jr. also had a big 2018, hitting .286/.355/.507 with 22 homers and 16 stolen bases in 99 games between Double-A and Triple-A. He’s undersized for a shortstop at just 6-foot-0, 175 pounds, but he has the tools to be a star at the position. Tatis is currently injured (stress reaction in his lower back), but he should be back later this spring and is expected to start the season in Triple-A.
3. Eloy Jimenez, OF, Chicago White Sox Jimenez was one of the top prospects in baseball coming into 2018 and he did nothing to hurt his stock last year, hitting .337/.384/.577 with 22 homers in 108 games between Double-A and Triple-A. He’s currently sidelined with a pectoral injury, but he should be healthy by the time spring training ends. Jimenez is expected to start the season in Triple-A and could be up with the White Sox at some point this summer.
4. Nick Senzel, 3B, Cincinnati Reds The third overall pick in the 2016 draft, Senzel missed most of last season due to vertigo but he’s healthy now and ready to resume his climb up the prospect ranks. He hit .310/.378/.509 with 14 homers and 13 stolen bases in 2017 between High-A and Double-A and is one of the few true five-tool prospects in baseball. Senzel will start the season in Triple-A and could be up with the Reds at some point this summer.
5. Carter Kieboom, SS/2B, Washington Nationals A first round pick (28th overall) out of high school in 2016, Kieboom has hit .281/.349/.443 with 19 homers and 24 stolen bases in 118 games between Low-A and High-A over parts of two seasons. He’s still just 20 years old (he’ll turn 21 on April 3) but he has a chance to be an impact player at both shortstop and second base defensively while also providing solid offense at the plate

The top 5 Overall prospects
In baseball, a prospect is a minor league player who is expected to become a Major League player. The term “prospect” is used in different ways in different parts of the sport. In some cultures, “prospect” carries a negative connotation, suggesting that the player in question will never make it to the Major Leagues In others, it is simply seen as a fact of the sport; every year, hundreds of young men are drafted or sign professional contracts with the hope of someday reaching the Major Leagues and every year only a handful of them succeed.

With that said, there are always going to be some prospects who stand out above the rest. Here are our top 5 overall prospects for the 2019 season:
