OF Champ Stuart

Stuart, who stole 147 bases in six seasons, simply was never able to get his bat to catch up to his legs. Knapp was a two-time pitcher of the week in St. Lucie in 2016, but he ran into a wall in Las Vegas in 2017 and had shoulder problems this seasons that limited him to three non-rehab starts.
