If it hadn’t been for injuries, d’Arnaud would be off this list. Despite missing time with a knee injury in 2012 and a broken foot in ’13, he made his Major League debut in August. Traded twice for Cy Young Award winners, he is ready for a full-time gig in the big leagues. The 24-year-old has the chance to be an outstanding offensive player with the ability to hit for average and power. He’s not a slouch behind the plate, either, with more than enough catch-and-throw skills to be an everyday player. All d’Arnaud needs is health, because he has the skill set to be one of the best all-around catchers in the National League.
Kevin Plawecki just missed the list, falling in the “Next Up” category, alongside Oakland prospect Max Stassi.
His comment, excerpted. He has a:
knack for hitting for average and getting on base… If he displays a little more power and continues to prove to people that he can stay behind the plate despite his big frame, he could be a big league regular someday.
