Imposter syndrome is real. 

Many of these younger players haven't really struggled on the baseball field in their lives (or at least not in a long time). To get drafted, they've had to play great and be amongst the best at every level they played as an amateur. So their first taste of prolonged struggle (although unavoidable and essential) can lead to doubt and for some players this imposter syndrome as they doubt if they're good enough. To make it to the Majors, a player will need the mental fortitude to bounce back, but I think that's probably a lot easier to do if you've already experienced professional success. And coming off COVID with such a long gap between actual games, I think it was a good move to put players in the best position to succeed early before really challenging them. That at least gave them a base of success before the struggles.
