You already know all about the 30-year-old former Heisman winner turned outfielder playing in the Eastern League Christopher Tanev Jersey All-Star Game in Trenton, New Jersey, on Wednesday night. But Tim Tebow isn’t the only reason to tune in for the fun. Here are five Eastern League prospects worth checking out:
Bo Bichette, shortstop, Toronto Blue Jays: The shortstop on the most well-known team in the minors, Bichette is holding his own in the Eastern League as a 20-year-old. After coming into the season as Keith Law’s No. 17 ranked prospect, Dante’s son has hit .267/.326./.430 for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats thus far in 2018.
Cavan Biggio, second baseman, Toronto Blue Jays: A late-blooming hitter with a famous father, Biggio has turned heads as a prospect with his strong first half in New Hampshire. Teaming with fellow sons of major leaguers Bichette and Vlad Guerrero Jr., the 23-year-old Biggio has already belted 19 home runs this season after hitting just 11 total in two minor league seasons entering 2018.
Bummer alert: Though selected for the team, Vlad Guerrero Jr. won’t be playing Wednesday due to the knee injury that has kept him out of http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-christopher-tanev-jersey action since June 6.
Cousins has been an All-Star in each of the last six seasons, averaging at least 24 http://www.officialsbuccaneersauthenticstore.com/Authentic-Warren-Sapp-Jersey points per game in each of those. With the Warriors, he knows the scoring numbers will likely dip.
Again, he apparently has no problem with that. He said he can see some nights where he takes only four shots, even though that’s happened only four times in his 535-game career.
It may be some games where I’m the leading scorer, Cousins said. I look at that as a positive. I don’t have to be the guy every night. I’ve always wanted a team where everything doesn’t rely on me and now I’m in that position.
He’s going to be in playoff position as well. Cousins Warren Sapp Authentic Jersey has never lost an NBA playoff game, because he’s never appeared in an NBA playoff game. His last postseason playing experience was with Kentucky and its run to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament in 2010.
I’m coming in just playing my part, Cousins said. I’ll do whatever it takes to help this team win. Of course, I’m in a position where I’m able to play for a championship and every NBA player’s goal is to win a championship. So I’m coming in and I’ll do whatever it takes.
Rookie Tyler Wade and Austin Romine also homered for the Yankees, and Giancarlo Stanton had four hits.
In the pivotal third inning, Stanton singled in a run before Bird ended a nine-pitch at-bat by pulling a curveball down the line.
