The Cleveland Guardians are lucky enough to have some solid young talent on their major league roster.
But down in the minor league system, there’s even more young talent, with several prospects making their presence felt.
Down at Triple-A Columbus, Bo Naylor, the brother of slugger Josh Naylor, is one of those players making waves.
Guardians Prospective, a page following Guardians prospects, tweeted a video of Bo hitting a home run, one that went 462 feet for his first at Triple-A and seventh on the season.

A Tape-Measure Shot
That was certainly a shot.
Naylor has a bright future if he keeps hitting nukes like that one.
462 feet is impressive, especially for a guy in the minor leagues.
That’s not too far from Ted Williams territory.
But that swing was just so pretty.
He stayed through it well and ultimately put a nice big swing on the ball and hit it a mile high.
That swing makes Naylor a prospect worth watching.
The future appears bright for the Guardians prospect-wise.
They already have plenty of young stars making a difference on their major league roster.
If Naylor continues hitting blasts like that one, then there isn’t really much more he can do at Triple-A before he gets the call to the big leagues.
Here’s yet another guy who you can’t make a mistake while pitching to.
Having him in the lineup with Jose Ramirez, his brother Josh, and other solid hitters will make Cleveland’s lineup a powerful one in the future.
