This is Ramos' first time in big league camp, although he has had a few at-bats in the past. Ramos never has been shy to show his confidence, an attribute the Giants have to be happy about. But with the minor league season canceled last year and delayed this season, they likely will be cautious with him at the start of the year. 

There's a reason Baseball America and FanGraphs have Matos ranked No. 4 in San Francisco's farm system. That feels like a good landing spot, but I wouldn't be afraid to put him in the top three. Matos turned 19 years old this past January, has the best chance of sticking in center field out of the Giants' top outfield prospects and his eye-opening bat speed produces big-time power.

Verdugo isn't the only player with a Dodgers pedigree being counted on to make an impact this year. Over his six years in L.A., Hernandez became a fan favorite for (a) his ability to play all over the field and (b) his propensity for delivering in the clutch, such as his three-homer NLCS to deny the Cubs a chance to repeat in 2017.St. Louis Cardinals Face Masks

As previously noted, the Senators have a 3.86 GAA, which is worst in the NHL.

Rickard Rakell has been picking up his pace after an awful offensive start to the season. He is on a six-game points streak with five goals and seven assists after starting the season with a goal and six assists in his first 20 games. He has moved to the top of the Ducks scoring race with Comtois.

His best save came with just two minutes to play in regulation when Rangers forward Pavel Buchnevich looked like he was in position for a game-tying goal only to have Jarry manage to get his pad on the shot to keep it out of the net.

Libor Hajek scored his first goal since the 2018-19 season, and just his second in the NHL. There's something about facing the Devils, as both of his career goals are against New Jersey. The goal also stood up as the game-winning tally, helped out from K'Andre Miller and Pavel Buchnevich.Seattle Kraken for NHL Face Masks

Remarkably, he only missed 43 games due to injury, and in the process set a team record of 548 consecutive games played. The captain for the Wings from 1962 until his retirement in 1973 finished in the top 10 in NHL scoring 11 times, scored 20 or more goals in a season 13 times, appeared in 13 All-Star games, became the third player to amass 1,000 points, and won three Lady Byng trophies (’59, ’66, ’69) “for sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with high playing ability.” Throughout his career he was penalized 383 minutes and engaged in only a handful of fights. When he retired, Delvecchio was second in NHL history to Howe in games played, assists, and points. In 1974, he was awarded the prestigious Lester Patrick Award for his contributions to U.S. hockey, and three years later was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. His No. 10 jersey was retired by the Wings in 1991, and in 2008, the club unveiled a statue of him that now is in the concourse of Little Caesars Arena.Winnipeg Jets for NHL Face Masks

Cain watched baseball on TV, which he rarely does, and spent an extended amount of time around his three sons, ages 6, 5 and 3. He also reintroduced himself to the Bible, which quelled some of his anger and helped channel his focus in a positive direction. The death of Bryant, a fellow athlete and father, at the beginning of the year had been a stark reminder to Cain of his own mortality. Floyd's death, and the events that followed it over the summer, reopened wounds around being Black in America. Cain became intent about "voicing my opinion a little bit more because at the end of the day, as athletes, we have a platform, and people will listen."

With all of that in mind, here's how some of the best prospects could be handled:

Verdugo isn't the only player with a Dodgers pedigree being counted on to make an impact this year. Over his six years in L.A., Hernandez became a fan favorite for (a) his ability to play all over the field and (b) his propensity for delivering in the clutch, such as his three-homer NLCS to deny the Cubs a chance to repeat in 2017.St. Louis Cardinals Face Masks

But his chase rate -- the percentage of pitches a batter swings at outside the strike zone -- jumped last year to 33.3 percent (the MLB average was 30.6 percent). In 2019, when Voit was beginning to get a rep for controlling the strike zone, something the Yankees adore, his chase rate was just 26.6 percent, according to FanGraphs, five points better than league average that season.

He reveled in it Sunday, explaining that while most pitchers enjoy hydrating drinks after outings, he sips on Dr. Pepper, which he promptly displayed as good as any TV pitchman. He reveled in it earlier this week, too, the White Sox tweeting out pictures of Hendriks from photo day, in which their new $54 million closer was sporting a batting helmet, wearing Eloy Jiménez's batting gloves and posing with a bat.Cincinnati Reds Face Masks

Paul Reed was the No. 58 pick in the 2020 draft and exceeded expectations during the G League bubble season. The 6-foot-9 power forward is one of the most efficient players on the court, averaging 22.3 points and 11.8 rebounds for the Delaware Blue Coats. Reed has excellent touch around the rim and has shown a ton of creativity in his shot selection. He excels off the dribble attacking the basket and can end up being a huge asset to a deep Philadelphia 76ers team.Sacramento Kings Face Coverings
