19 days until Opening Day = 19 year old Raul Mondesi


A daily(ish) snack-sized meditation on how much closer we are to Opening Day than we were yesterday. Today:


is Raul Mondesi's age.

We've had the opportunity to think about Mondesi quite a bit this spring, as he's landed somewhere in everyone's top prospect rankings. He's been promoted through the minors fairly aggressively, so he's always younger than the pitchers he faces.

Mondesi has had a bit of playing time this spring, hitting .250/.333/.438 in 18 plate appearance. He has also stolen 3 bases.
