Seeing the Spinners tonight: Who should I be looking for?

I was disappointed (but not surprised) when Benitendi was promoted last week.  So who should I point at tonight and say "watch this guy", and seem halfway intelligent about?
 
Austin Rei was our 3rd round pick in the 2015 draft and was thought of as one of the best catchers in the draft. Josh Ockimey is the 1st baseman and he has probably the most offensive potential in that lineup.

Not a lot of big names there.
 
Basabe (.13 500K IFA).
Matheny ('15 4th rounder)
Ockimey ('14 5th rounder)
Rei ('15 3rd rounder)

I saw part of the doubleheader Saturday, it'd be interesting to pool observations.  In a very small sample size, it looked like Ockimey was having real troubles picking up offspeed and breaking stuff (swinging way ahead) and Rei had trouble with fastballs but was right on a slider.  Acosta made some nifty defensive plays at third.  There wasn't much about their performance on Saturday that was eye-catching, unfortunately.

The answer, as always, is Brandon Magee.

Looking forward to seeing the lad, Cuz.  Anything I should shout at him?   ;)
 
You're going to have to shout real loud as he is on the restricted list and has had a paper move to XST.

Yeah, speculation on Magee is that he may be headed to an NFL camp. Basabe is the clear top prospect on that offense. He was a very well thought of IFA who's hit for surprising power this season. His twin brother is also a prospect in the DSL, though not as advanced.
 
 
Mitchell Gunsolus was a popular sleeper pick as a 2015 min sign. He appeared to have an advanced approach and solid hit skill in college. This hasn't translated, yet.
