FUTURE Roster of Current Prospects

The Line up foundation looks set long term

C Shea Langeliers-r / Murphy / Bethancourt-r
1B Tyler Soderstrom-l / Logan Davidson-r / Brown-l / Bethancourt-r
2B Max Muncy-r / Neuse-r / Kemp-l
SS Nick Allen-r / Elvis
3B Zack Geloff-r / K Smith
LF Lawrence Butler-l / Brown / Pinder
RF Cody Thomas-l / Ramon-r / Piscotty
CF Pineda-r /Barrera-l / Pache-r / Ramon-r
UT Jordan Diaz-r / Drew Jackson-r

2023 Hitting Line up (Trade deadline: Aug. 2, 2022)

The 2022 Priority appears to be a stingy pitching staff. Finley's A's appears the familiar model for a disciplined pitching staff used to winning low scoring 1-run games. ...then add offense?

Maybe the upgrading priority can switch to the current offense the second half of 2022?
