In the South Atlantic League, Rockies gold glove third baseman Nolan Arenado was discussed as a player destined for first base due to a poor defensive baseball tool. At the time, stating the 19-year old would be a defensive asset was tantamount to credibility suicide. Arenado worked to transform his body and develop better footwork at the hot corner. It worked. Same can be said for Evan Gattis of the Braves, Red Sox Xander Bogaerts, Wilmer Flores of the Mets and other prospects expected to slide down the defensive spectrum.
