Posted by Noah Wright on

By: Noah Wright   In the coming 3 or so years, the Bucs are going to face a “problem”. Whether or not that’s a good problem or not is up to you. However I do think it’s a good problem. The Bucs have tons of infield prospects. So much so that it could be hard for them to all find spots for regular playing time. The first wave came today with Cole Tucker.
