#MAJOR League Baseball produced its first Top 30 Prospects for each franchise of the offseason and several Bahamian players were listed for their respective clubs.

#Kristian Robinson continues to head the list as the No.1 prospect of the Arizona Diamondbacks while Jazz Chisholm remains the No. 4 prospect of the Miami Marlins.

#Robinson has been lauded by the Diamondbacks staff at the team’s alternate training site for his improvement and a reported 25 pounds of added muscle.

#“Everyone else was already in mid-season form, and it took him like two days to look like he’d been playing there all year,” said D-backs farm director Josh Barfield about Robinson.

#“He had a few games where he’d do something to make you think, ‘We don’t have anyone else who can do that. He hit three homers — three opposite-field home runs — in back-to-back-to-back at-bats over at Chase Field. One in the pool, one over the pool and one on the concourse. He does some things that not many people can do.”

#For the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, D’Shawn Knowles moved up one spot to No.8 while Trent Deveaux is listed at No.16.

#Tahnaj Thomas is ranked No.15 for the Pittsburgh Pirates and Chavez Young entered the list for the Toronto Blue Jays at No. 30 on their prospect list.

#After a late season trade to the Kansas City Royals, Lucius Fox was listed at No. 23 in the organisation.

#Fox was traded for the second time in his career when the Rays sent him to the Royals in exchange for outfielder Brett Phillips.

#He has been listed at shortstop for the duration of his career but saw time at centrefield, second base, and third base during Spring Training. He was listed as an infielder/outfielder for the Rays’ 2020 player pool.
