Haven't looked too hard, but a quick glance gives me Jose Fernandez, Syndergaard, Kyle Zimmer, Cole, Webster, Tyrell Jenkins, Sean Gilmartin, Brody Colvin, Luis Heredia, Tyler Maztek and Wily Peralta.
Manny Machado is aware that he is Manny Machado.
So when baseball's top non-pitching prospect strode to the plate with three hits to his name-in-lights on the scoreboard at Bowie's Prince George's Stadium, he wasn't expecting any easy pitches. Trenton reliever Mark Montgomery was thinking the same thing.
"He threw me a fastball, middle. I stayed back and took it," Machado said. "I knew I had a good day and knew I wasn't going to get another good pitch to hit. I was just looking for an off-speed pitch, and he gave me one. I wasn't trying to hit a home run, I was just trying to make contact."
Machado sent that 0-1 slider over the left-center-field fence to complete the BaySox's first cycle in four years and provide the winning margin in an 8-7 victory over the visiting Thunder.
