i think its a fairly good shot, i can see Hosmer being top 25 by seasons end though. Both Hosmer and Moustakas have really broken out thus far hitting damn near .400 still

Trout i can see top 10 as well

Good list, don't know if I'd slot Grandal in the top 50. And you still have Drabek with the phillies

Agreed. This is a pretty weak draft class. Outside of Harper, I don't think anybody belongs in the top 50. Machado & Tailon probably crack my top 100 but not by a lot. FWIW, I have Harper #2. What he did this year was off the charts.

From SB Nation

Manny Machado

School: Brito Private HS State: FL Height: 6-3 Weight: 190

Bats: R Throws: R Birth Date: 7/6/92 Commitment: Florida International

Manny Machado is an electric shortstop from Brito Private High School in Hialeah, Florida, which is just outside Miami. Machado has been on the prospect scene for a number of years, but it wasn't until about a year ago that he really started getting noticed as a potential impact player in this draft class.

Seen as part of the pack that included shortstops Yordy Cabrera and Justin O'Conner entering last summer, he had separated himself by the end of the fall tournament season, and he's only gone on to confirm that placement this spring. He has all the tools and makeup to become a perennial all star shortstop at the next level, and it's only a matter of time before he's making headlines across the Major Leagues.

At the plate, he's a plus hitter with average raw power, and those two tools together means he has some of the best offensive potential for a shortstop in all of baseball at this moment. Though he's only an average runner, when that is combined with his hitting tools, he's seen as an elite offensive player for an up-the-middle player.

Defensively, he's come a long way, and while many thought he'd have to move off the position last summer, he's made enough strides this spring to consider him a possible above-average defender with a plus arm. One of the major drawbacks about him is his signability, and even though he's expected to sign without any reservations, his adviser is Scott Boras, and his bonus is expected to be well above slot, even in the first five picks, where he's expected to go.


From MLB.com

Fastball: Taillon threw his fastball in the 94-99 mph range.

Fastball movement: It has explosive movement.

Curve: It's a plus pitch and he threw it 81-85 mph.

Slider: Also a plus breaking ball, he throws it 84-88 mph.

Changeup: He has a changeup and it's a solid pitch. He doesn't always use it, but he knows it's a pitch he'll need at the next level.

Control: He does need to improve his command, though it's not a real concern. He has a tendency to throw away from hitters too much and must learn to come in more, something that likely will come when he's pitching to wood bats consistently.

Poise: He has plus poise and his makeup is off the charts.

Physical Description: Taillon is an absolute beast. He's tall and lean with extra-long levers and a slim waist.

Medical Update: Healthy.

Strengths: Three plus pitches with the changeup giving him the potential to have a four-pitch mix.

Weaknesses: Like with many high school pitchers, his command can improve.

Summary: Taillon is the complete package in a high school pitcher, with tremendous size, stuff and a feel for pitching. He's got three plus pitches in his fastball, slider and curve. Even his changeup, while not used that much, is solid. He uses his size to his advantage and has tremendous mound presence. As impressive as his stuff is, his makeup might be even better. A commitment to Rice might sound intriguing, but if he goes at the top of the first round, and everything points to that happening, it likely won't be an issue.


I will agree to disagree. Taillon and Machado should be in the top 50. Near the back end, but still top 50. Grandal was probably a bit ambitious, as he still has a lot to work on, but I like the guy.

As for Harper at #2, I cannot see putting him above the guys I ranked him under. It is possible he could move up, if his performance can carry over to pro ball, but his numbers in the JUCO have to be taken with a grain of salt.

Thanks for the comments!

sfbennett1 (Edmond, OK): Bryce Harper: Outfielder ... where does he slot in the 2011 Top 100?

Kevin Goldstein: At least considered for No. 1.

Preseason 2011 is a way different than mid-season 2010. The top 3 may all lose their eligibility which helpse all the prospects moving up.
