After a mostly lost season spent recovering from shoulder trouble, Jesus Luzardo has arrived in the big leagues and quickly shown why he's such an exciting prospect, throwing a pair of strong three-inning relief outings, including his first save on Sunday. In the process, he has showcased an upper-90's fastball that at first glance has flat-out unfair movement.

On the latest episode of the Rotoworld Baseball Podcast, prospects guru Chris Crawford joins me to look at what's ahead for Luzardo, Gavin Lux and Kyle Lewis, who hit four home runs in his first six major league games after getting the call from Double-A. We also discuss Cubs shortstop Nico Hoerner and A's catcher Sean Murphy, both swinging hot bats lately as well.
