Guys likely to make huge leaps in upcoming prospect rankings

Postby Galt » Fri Jun 09, 2006 4:44 pm

I'm struggling with what the actually title this; couldn't think of the right phrase.

Regardless.

With BA and Rotoworld and some others about to publish their updated midseason top 100 lists, I'm curious which prospects will likely be high on those lists that weren't on the last ones.

Guys like Pence, Liz, and Garza come to mind as people who will make huge leaps in the rankings.

I just want to start researching some guys who will likely be ranked in the top 50 prospects in baseball come July, but who may be free agents in my keeper league right now just because they weren't highly ranked coming into the season

Elijah Dukes, Wes Bankston, Wade Davis, Jacoby Ellsbury.

I predict Dukes will crack the top 25

I am so happy for this post...I need to know who will be making the leap up the rankings...I own Pence and Liz, so I am confidant they will jump up due to their numbers.....Liz came outta nowhere...are there any other pitchers like this we need to know about?

Kendrick better jump even higher to the top 5 along with Milledge, they both deserve..... and Pelfrey has been absolutely dominant and looks like a top 20 or 15 prospect.... also Carlos Gonzalez and Tulo may go up a little

Yeah, I'm a little Brewers biased, but Mark Rogers is making incredible leaps. A little article on him.....

While I think he is right around that as far as pure talent goes, BA will never rank him that highly. If they didn't rank him in the Top 100 because of his make up issues, they won't put him that highly after this year.

Another Rays prospect that is very likely to be climbing the rankings is Reid Brignac. He is playing SS now but is likely to switch to 3B or maybe even 1B (If Longoria is already at 3B).

Speaking of Brewers' minor league SP's, it looks like Yovanni Gallardo has also taken a big step up and could crack some top 50's.
