I'm gonna list my top prospects basically based upon nothing more than what I read here and some other places. I'm curious to see what I and the rest of the MB gets and how close we are to Luke's list on Sunday.
1. Javier Baez
I think Luke might stick with Soler here, but with Baez up and Soler out I think this is my stance
2. Kris Bryant
I don't know? I've never seen him play, but I have drooled over his stats, skills, and reports. Seems like a fair bet.
3. Jorge Soler
The ceiling and floor are still there and he still has a chance to move quickly through the system. His demotion in the rankings is more so due to Baez's growth, Bryant's entrance on to the scene, and Soler's lack of play.
4. Albert Almora
Alright, you knew this one was coming. What is there to say that hasn't been said. lower ceiling than the first three, but a higher floor than them as well.
5. Aroldis Vizcaino
I know he's out and has been hurt for some time, but the upside remains so high that I can't mov him down further.
6. Arismendy Alcantara
This guy has been cruising lately. I'm not sure if he's anywhere close to the impact guy the first 5 guys are, but I feel confident he will make the show soon and stay for a while.
7. Pierce Johnson
He's guy who was well thought of coming into the season and has not disappointed thus far. He's doing quite well at his level, and I expect a promotion later this season (to where ? when? why? all question I do not know)
8. Dan Vogelbach
Again, if you're reading this post you probably frequent the message board and therefore know all there is to say about this guy. I think his power and hit tool are dreamy and will carry him far.
9. Juan Carlos Panigua (JCP!)
After a long awaited arrival, I expect big things from JCP. He was well thought of coming into the season, and he will have to show why he should remain that way after missing significant time.
10. Kyle Hendricks
Kyle is killing it at AA, and I hope to see him up sometime late this summer.
Just Missed (in no particular order)
Josh Vitters (lol)
Brett Jackson (LOL!!! but also
Alright guys, what do ya got? Well compare after Luke's List (idea for a prospect rating blog?) comes out.
