Hello Everyone! My name is Jake Plotkin and I will be covering the Oakland A’s prospects for Prospects1500 this season. As a lifelong Texas Rangers fan, switching to the A’s will be a unique twist, but I’m looking forward to learning more about this up and coming system. I will provide up to date information on each team in the system as well as profiles on players I believe will make an impact in the future.
I have been fortunate enough to have worked in baseball for the past two summers, so I have gotten to see some very young talent up and close. Prospects are the future of baseball and that is one of the big reasons on why I am so interested in discovering the next superstar. I hope you will join me along this journey and feel free to comment.
I recently graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Sports Business & History. My previous journalism experience included being on my high school newspaper, so it’s been awhile since I have written, but I am looking forward to reviving my journalistic talent.
