Tyler O’Neill – RF

Tyler O’Neill is the last name on this list, and he may well be the most exciting. At just 20-years-old, O’Neill is the second youngster member of the Javelins. He is also the Mariners’ 7th best prospect according to MLB.com.

The Langley, BC product is mashing this season with the Bakersfield Blaze. O’Neill is hitting .263 with 30 home runs, 81 RBI and 16 stolen bases across 99 games in 2015. O’Neill’s 30 long balls not only lead the California League, but it is also the highest tally at any level in the minor leagues this season. O’Neill’s numbers are even more impressive when you consider he missed a couple weeks of the season while representing Canada at the Pan Am Games in Toronto.

I am very interested to see how Tyler O’Neill fares this fall in Peoria. He is a very young player, but his offensive skill set is as good as anyone on the roster. If he can continue to progress, I expect fans will see O’Neill at Safeco Field during the 2017 season.
