UPDATE (4/12/17 @ 8am): Roch Kubatko wrote this today with a quote from Buck Showalter (re: Cedric Mullins):
I’m hearing the theory that Mullins could be one of those players who gets better the more he’s challenged, such as moving him from the South Atlantic League to the Eastern League at 22.
“Maybe, maybe,” Showalter said. “It’s early. He’s off to a good start. So are some other people, but Cedric seems to have carried over what he did this spring, which is good to see. He’s another one of those guys who doesn’t appear on our prospect list that people miss on. It’s OK. Just keep missing.”
