I'm trying to find out some info about these two. I've been doing a lot of reading and I've noticed they're one of the few that have been mentioned in Baseball America Prospects Top 100 at such a young age. Is there a correlation of being mentioned at the age of 18 in the top 30 or so and their success in the MLB? These are the MLB players that were mentioned in the Top 100 at the age of 18 in the past:
Jose Reyes ranked #34 in 34
Vladimir Guerrero ranked #85 in 95
Alex Rodriguez ranked #6 in 94
Derek Jeter ranked #44 in 93
What's interesting is I could not find one single player that ended up being a bust with a high ranking when they were mentioned in the Baseball America at the age of 18. The only one that I could find was Benji Gil was ranked #48 after his rookie minor league season at 18.
