WATCH: Rutschman shows off jaw-dropping power with metal bat originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
Adley Rutschman is one of the best prospects in all of minor league baseball. He checks just about every box a rebuilding franchise could want in a top prospect, including his prodigious power.
The consensus no. 2 prospect in baseball showed off that light-tower power in a video he shared this week.

Rutschman uncorks several swings over the course of a few seconds that have Orioles fans drooling. Without a minor league season in 2020, it's been a long time since fans have been able to enjoy watching Rutschman do what he does best.
Of course, it's always easier to hit with a metal bat as opposed to wood. In this video, Rutschman is essentially upgrading to the Aluminum Power Bat from Backyard Baseball. But it's still an incredible display of power.
Fans in Baltimore are sure hoping they get to see a few more swings like this over the course of the next decade in Charm City.
