As far as top prospects, just remember at one point Mike Piazza was basically unwanted. Evaluate stats and not scouting reports.
Thats completely besides the point. in 1992 Piazza was one of the top prospects in all of baseball. He destroyed both AA and AAA. And then went on to crush MLB pitching in his rookie 1993 season.
Draft status =/= prospect status.
That's your definition.
A prospect begins upon being drafted - as they progress throughout the minor leagues, their status as a prospect changes.
What's the big deal anyways?
