"Finally, there are the Quad-A guys, the ones who can hit and maybe not do much else. There are now 15 more jobs for this class, and some of them are going to pop. I mentioned Gorman, but the Cardinals also have Juan Yepez, a 24-year-old minor-league vet who hit .290/.382/.589 in his first exposure to Triple-A. Tyler White, once a top Astros prospect, has landed in Milwaukee at 31 off a .424 OBP at Triple-A last year. Seth Beer is a bit of a forgotten man after his college career at Clemson, but the introduction of an NL DH creates space for him in the Diamondbacks’ lineup."
