One of our deep sleeper picks we chose was Manuel Margot, which we wrote about before the 2017 season began.
Given the extreme small sample size, it’s still encouraging to see when a prospect comes out swinging (so to speak) and showcasing his talents right out of the gates (or batter’s box if you will).
Currently he has two homeruns with one steal on top of his four runs and four RBIs as the leadoff hitter for the San Diego Padres, heading into week two.
Most expect the number of steals will far exceed the number of homeruns as the season progresses. Margot should also make some highlight reel plays on defence with his blazing speed and natural defensive ability.
Again, we note the small sample size caveat but when we invested in Margot before the season began, his 2014 Bowman Chrome refractor auto (BGS Graded 9.5/10) was valued at $60.
It currently sits at $100 with more listings now available for his rookie card.
