RIGHT FIELD –
- Mookie Betts – Boston Red Sox #51
(Born: October 16, 1992) (Las Vegas, Nevada)
(24) – Mookie Betts is one of my top ten favorite players in baseball and I’m a Yankees fan. Enough said? Besides the fact that he was a major reason I won my fantasy baseball leagues last year (and $1200), the kid can flat out ball. At the leadoff spot, he gets on base, he hits home runs, he steals bases, he does it all. There is no question Mookie Betts is in the starting lineup at leadoff to get things going for the All-Under 25 squad. His main competition for RF was Bryce Harper but since Betts is a bit quicker and better in the field, I have him starting out there in right and Harper at DH. The only thing more lovable than the Cookie Monster is the Mookie Monster.
- Domingo Santana – Milwaukee Brewers #16
(Born: August 5, 1992) (Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic)
(24) – One of the least known names on the list, Domingo Santa, is perhaps one of the most worthy. Santana of the Milwaukee Brewers has been having himself quite the start to the 2017 season but since he is playing for Milwaukee, there hasn’t been too much buzz around him. Sporting a .264 batting average, with his 11 home runs, 35 RBI’s, 38 runs and 6 stolen bases this season, Santana has been having himself an all-star caliber like year. Santana will be the backup to Mookie Betts on the All-Under 25 all-star team, which is quite the compliment if you ask me. That’s like being Brad Pitt’s understudy in a remake of Fight Club. Not a bad gig.
