The Astros second-best prospect in Tucker highlights this group. He will be the next big prospect up when needed. They don’t want to start his arbitration clock too early unless he was needed. Kemmer and Ferguson are probably options for fourth or fifth outfielders.
Alvarez is the fourth-ranked prospect and probably the most likely to be traded if they want to hold onto Tucker. He is batting .299/ six homers/ 26 RBIs in Corpus and could be ready soon. He is currently on the seven day DL.
Derek Fisher is no longer a top prospect, but he is part of the Astros depth. Dawson is another name to keep an eye on. He is a mix of power (six in 51 games), and speed (19 stolen bases). Straw is making a name for himself as a contact hitter with extreme speed. In 52 games in Double-A, Straw has stolen 33 bases while batting .362.
