Here is a recap of how each of the top 2011 draft prospects did this weekend. Click on their names to go to their tracker pages.
If you were hoping for a big start to the 2011 season for Rendon, you didn't get your wish this weekend. Rendon combined to go 3-for-12 over the weekend, with all three hits going for singles. One of the hits on Sunday was arguably an error on the center fielder, and none of them were overly impressive. On Friday we ran a poll asking you to guess how many home runs Rendon would hit in the opening weekend. Only 17.8% of voters predicted he would go without a home run.
Dejan Kovacevic was on hand for Rendon's first two games. You can check out his recaps below, plus a feature on Rendon:
