Though the West Virginia Power lineup seemed to lack talent when the 2017 season opened, a few top picks from the 2016 draft found their way onto the Low-A roster. The 7-10 picks have been mainstays on the team since Brent Gibbs was called up to the club from Extended Spring Training on May 14. Gibbs joined Dylan Prohoroff, Clark Eagan, and Matt Anderson as the other top picks in West Virginia. Here is a look at how each player has performed so far this season.
