Twins' Byron Buxton was named baseball's top prospect by MLB.com on Thursday.
Former number two overall pick from the 2012 MLB Draft has shot up the rankings after just a year and a half-plus in the minors. Buxton is a five tool player that projects to be a 20/20 player, if not better who hits for average. The Twins brass have said not to be surprised if Buxton and fourth overall ranked prospect Miguel Sano see some time with the big league club this year. (Note: Do not overreact to this news and draft them in mixed leagues though).ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Redskins Coach Jay Gruden said this week that he intends to get Pierre Garçon’s numbers “back up” in 2015.
The Redskins are a mess, so this is clearly lip service. Garçon is a fine wide receiver, but to think that his numbers will rise with questions surrounding Washington's quarterback situation are a bit far fetched. The veteran wideout saw 45 less receptions and 594 fewer yards last year than he did in 2013, so to think that his numbers will increase next year is a bit preposterous. View him as a WR3 for now, but Garçon has the ability to be much more if the Redskins can develop some chemistry on offense. Analysis: David Kerr
