How would you break it into tiers as it relates to all of MLB prospects?

 

Feel free to pick your own levels, but I think of it as something like this, more or less doubling each step down:

 

Top tier:  Top 5-10 guys overall

Second tier:  The next 20-30 guys

Third tier:  Through the top 100-125

Fourth tier: Through the top 250-300...most of your org top-10 guys

Fifth tier:  About twice as wide the fourth tier...most of your org top-30 guys

Sixth tier: Anybodyelse who might become a prospect someday, but probably not

1st tier: Adley and Grayson
2nd tier: DL Hall
3rd tier: Henderson, Cowser, Westburg, Mayo
4th tier: 8-14 (Kjerstad to Pinto)
5th tier: 15-41 (Tavera to Amparo)
6th tier: 42-76 (Bannon to Moises Ramirez plus some others here and there lower than that) - I keep a top 100 for myself

Good work.

 

Lot of thoughts, but I'll leave them out for now.

So, I've been looking to see what I can nitpick about on this list.  It's not easy.  I think you did a great job but here goes my first one.  We have Mishael Deson who is 19/20 who put up impressive numbers in the FCL and he's at #32.   We have Hudson Haskins who is 22/23 who, although he got off to a hot start at Delmarva, saw his OPS dive under .800 in Delmarva and then put up okay numbers in Aberdeen with no homerun power.   I want to like Haskins.  I liked what video I saw of him after the draft and hope for a big jump forward this year.  However, I have to like the season and promise that Deson shows (supposedly 5 tool projection and 3 homers in the FCL is nothing to sneeze about) over what Haskin showed last season.    I don't have that big of a problem with keeping Deson around #30 as he hasn't show anything above rookie ball.   However, I would argue that Haskin should be down around the same position because his debut full season was disappointing in my book.

Could easily see Deson pass him by the end of the season but I’m still a believer in Haskin’s skills. Defense and speed are underrated and those are his best tools. Solid hit tool and sneaky power. So I’m defending our list but definitely understand your position haha.

I just like that guys like Deson and Baumler are around 30. I feel like 5-7 years ago they’d be around 10.

3rd tier: Henderson, Cowser, Westburg, Mayo

I actually think the real key to us fielding a highly competitive team lies in tier 3 and 4.  Even if Adley, GR and Hall all hit, they will not insure rebuild success.The next couple of tiers have to produce 5 to 7 quality ML players.

My fear with Hall is the violent delivery.

 

No video, but here is a good and I think fair evaluation.

That's my fear on Hall as well. He's still only 23 and the stuff is there to be a mid-rotation guy at least, but in such a deep system I'd probably have him ranked lower, for the simple reason that there's a real chance he doesn't come anywhere close to that ceiling.

I have only seen him a few times on the MILB app, but my first thought, was his delivery reminds me of BJ Ryan.  Maybe that is what his role becomes a powerful back end of the bullpen guy, which is certainly valuable.

He needs to stay on the mound and get at least 100 innings and see where he belongs,

Prieto returns to the lineup though Norby got HBP last night and is now out.

McKenna hit 3 homeruns last night. Guy is proving he is at least a AAAA guy. He has hit AAA pitching very well the last 2 years. Shame the Os cant get him a longer look. Can play defense. Has speed.


Westburg was 2 for 2, 2 doubles, 2 walks. Still hitting under .200 but his OPS is .740. Bodes well even he can bring his BA up to even .250 with the Slg and walks.
