Top Prospect Lists 2018-2019
« on: June 22, 2018, 08:21:44 pm »
MLB.com did their midseason re-shuffle of their Top 100 Prospect rankings. Tucker moves up from #17 in their preseason rankings to #10 currently, Whitley drops slightly from #9 to #11 and Yordan Alvarez moves on to the list at #54. JB Bukauskas had been on the list at #76 but dropped off. Exes include Franklin Perez (#33) and Albert Abreu  (#65).

They wrote this on Alvarez:

"Alvarez also has some surprising athleticism for someone his size. He'll flash above-average speed once he gets going, though it plays more as average and he'll likely lose a step as he matures physically. He has shown more aptitude in left field than at first base and gets the job done on the outfield corner. His arm earns fringy to average grades, and the Astros plan on giving him some time in right field."

They have no clue either as to what's going w/Bukauskas noting his "undisclosed injury" in an accompanying article.

And in case you missed the BA midseason rankings:

BA released an updated Top 100 Prospects list today. Whitley, Tucker, and Alvarez all stayed in roughly the same place, but Corbin Martin vaulted from unranked up to #85.

BA has a midseason update to their Astros Top 10 Prospects list:

1. Whitley
2. Tucker
3. Alvarez
4. Corbin Martin
5. Solis
6. Nova
7. Hector Perez
8. Bukauskas
9. Beer
10. Cionel Perez

The preseason list (obvious done before the G. Cole trade) had:

1. Whitley
2. Tucker
3. Alvarez
4. Bukauskas
5. Nova
6. Solis
7. Hector Perez
8. Alcala
9. Moran
10. Paulino

Also mentioned the following as rising prospects:
  • Stubbs
  • Bielak--"heavy low- to mid-90s fastball and a solid-average curveball and changeup"
  • James
  • Celestino
  • Straw
  • Johanse Torres--way too old for DSL but "95-99 FB and a potentially plus slider are worth paying attention to"

TY for the update.
Is it a surprise for Beer to be #9?  Apparently he is not having a problem with wooden bats.
Nothing worthwhile comes without pain, ask any Astros fan.

It is. Beer usually results in a #1.

With Tucker promoted shouldn't Beer be among the top six pack?

Not eligible for these lists--he blew through his rookie status last season when he tossed 54 innings.

"To qualify for rookie status, a player must not have exceeded 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the Major Leagues, or accumulated more than 45 days on the active roster of a Major League club or clubs during the 25-player limit period."

Rapidly depleting the category of Top 10 prospects that are RH Latin Pitchers that can touch 100.
