He plays first base, bats right, and stands 6 ft 2. This kid is all about POWER. Not only can Torkleson unload on the baseball, but he should also hit, hit, and HIT with tons of bat speed… so tons of power with a high average… we love that.

Some “insiders” have compared him to a young Mark McGwire (some compare him to Greg Maddux, too, but we don’t see that). Here are the top-rated Spencer Torkelson rookie cards to buy now.

Investment Outlook

In only 17 games in 2019, Spencer slashed 340/.598/.780 with four doubles and six jacks in only 82 plate appearances… BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE! A few concerns include his strikeout rate and his speed on the defensive side limits him… first base or DH are his only options.

That said, we could easily see this kid putting up a season or three of 50-plus homers and a .300-plus average, especially with how juiced the ball is nowadays.
