There was some discussion about the transition from Triple-A to the majors, and whether that jump was getting any more difficult. It certainly seemed that way. Several highly-regarded minor leaguers completely flopped in their first tastes of big league action last year. Gregory Polanco, Jon Singleton, Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Oscar Taveras all didn't hit a lick after tearing it up in the minors. And perhaps worst of all, Javier Baez - a consensus top 10 prospect heading into the year - hit a putrid .169/.227/.324 with an unsightly 41% strikeout rate.
