As the first MLB player ever born in the 1990s, Castro hit a cool .300 in his rookie year—before he could legally drink a beer.  In his first full season, Castro, at 21 years old, became the youngest player to ever lead the NL in hits.

He might be flying under the radar as the Cubs’ bubbling hot farm system begins to boil over into the Show, but there isn’t a team in the league that wouldn’t love to have Castro as their starting shortstop.  Castro will likely reach 1000 Big League hits in his age 25 season, a feat that he’ll share with names like Miguel Cabrera, and Ken Griffey Jr.  Derek Jeter crossed the 1K threshold at age 26.  This kid can play.
