2012 Top 20

Postby RugbyD » Fri Feb 25, 2011 5:57 pm

This article http://www.royalsreview.com/2011/2/14/1 ... -prospects posted elsewhere on the Cafe got me thinking about who the top 20 will be in the upcoming year given that in most leagues that allow MiLBs to be rostered the current top 20 are almost all taken, it's important to be a step ahead for the upcoming year.

Who do you think have the best odds of being top 20 next year who are not in it this year? Let's assume Rendon is already there.

My best odds are Chisenhall, Singleton, Lawrie, Flores, Parker, Kelly, Perez

Here is the current 21-100, italics indicate those I think will lose prospect status:

Primarily, the guys who are ranked low and shoot up the rankings are the ones every blurb says "great upside, needs to prove it" and once they do, they're suddenly a top 20 prospect. Guys, namely pitchers, rebounding from injuries are also typical candidates. It's why top 100 lists are completely hopeless if you don't know about the players.


Jarrod Parker, Wilmer Flores, Derek Norris, Billy Hamilton, and Arodys Vizcaino are a couple who could jump up the ranks.

I think Betances and Segura are good bets to move up......would say Vitters as well, but been there done that.

Cosart if he stays healthy.

I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

Vizcaino, Betences. Dark Horse: Zach Lee.

Segura, Sale. Dark Horse: Oswaldo Arcia.

Those are my bets.

Josh Sale
Carlos Martinez (Matias)
Zach Lee

And I agree with the above. There are a bunch of guys at the bottom 100 that have something like - not enough data yet or needs show improvement. Those are the guys that will take a step forward jump into the top 20. Then add all draft picks (especially this coming draft) and you will get your top 20.
