I usually see Sano listed with a hit tool in the 4.5 to 5.5 range. 3 sounds awfully low.

The 3 is Sano current rating according to on http://mlb.mlb.com/m...ts/watch/y2013/ they say his future rating is 5 though. Might not have made that clear.

I wouldn't pay much attention to MLB's scouting stuff. If you're looking for the tool grades on top minor leaguers, BP has them for most of their top 10 prospect lists, and BA has this: http://www.baseballa...13/2614739.html
Helpful link. Thanks, Tommy. Would you say those are raw or in game numbers?


No clue. Power is probably raw, utility is directly tied to hit tool anyway. speed raw/not a whole ton of difference there anyway. defense/arm are both in-game things. Honestly can't tell if these are projections or current scores.


we have rated five tools on the 20-80 scouting scale, based on his realistic future ceiling



Sounds like they are projections to me.

The best part about that is they say "realistic" future ceiling.
