(4/24/2014) Rockies third base prospect Ryan McMahon is one of the South Atlantic League's top performers through the first few weeks of the season.
The 2013 second-round pick is batting .317 with a .425 on-base percentage, .767 slugging percentage and 1.191 OPS in 18 games for Class A Asheville. He also has three doubles, eight home runs, 15 RBI, 16 runs, 12 walks and 19 strikeouts.
"He's looked very comfortable at the plate, especially for a 19-year-old in his first [full] season," Asheville manager Fred Ocasio told MLB.com. "He's getting stronger and getting more experience. He's learning from his mistakes and making the most of many of his opportunities."
