  • Top Minor League Prospects

    Who are the top minor league prospects in baseball right now? For your favorite club? At each position?

    Curious what anyone familiar with the minors thinks.

    For my team-Brian Anderson-CF (I'm not counting Jenks)

    In all of baseball-

    OF-Delmon Young-DRays, Jeremy Hermida-Marlins
    3B-Ryan Zimmerman-Nats
    SS-Brandon Wood-Angels
    2B-Howie Kendrick-Angels
    1B-PRince Fielder-Brewers
    C-Jarrod Saltalamaccia-Braves
    P-Fransisco Liriano-Twins, Chad Billingsley-Dodgers, Justin Verlander-Tigers
    RP-Jonathan Broxton-Dodgers

    Those are off the top of my head

        According to Baseball Almanac:
        1. Delmon Young - of - TB
        2. Justin Upton - ss - ARI
        3. Brandon Wood - ss - LAA
        4. Jeremy Hermida - of - FLA
        5. Stephen Drew - ss - ARI
        6. Francisco Liriano - lhp - MIN
        7. Chad Billingsley - rhp - LAD
        8. Justin Verlander - rhp - DET
        9. Lastings Milledge - of - NYM
        10. Matt Cain - rhp - SFG

        Interesting that Arizona has two players in the top 10 and they're both shortstops. One of them is going to have to be traded sooner or later or switch positions.

        A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation. I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel. I played it right because that's what you're supposed to do, play it right and with respect. If this validates anything, it's that learning how to bunt and hit and run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light at the dug out camera. - Ryne Sandberg

          Arizona's office has said that they most likely will move Upton to CF.

          He's not a very good SS (I shouldn't say that...but he does make too many errors for a SS)
          Upton swears that he's a very good SS and is reluctant to switch positions.
          "After my fourth season I asked for $43,000 and General Manager Ed Barrow told me, 'Young man, do you realize Lou Gehrig, a 16-year-man, is playing for only $44,000?' I said, Mr. Barrow, there is only one answer to that - Mr. Gehrig is terribly underpaid."- Yankees outfielder Joe DiMaggio

            In the Tigers' system Verlander looks every bit the part of an ace. Joel Zumaya has been called a future closer, but he's always had success as a starter. Brent Clevlen has been turning some eyes @ Spring Training.

            Cameron Maybin is going to be a stud.

                Baseball America should have removed Liriano from that list because he looks likely to spend all year in MLB with the Twins. Same with Fielder and the Brewers.

                  Agreed. I've been to a couple of Whitecaps games this year, including tonight's game, and he's looked good. Last week he almost charged the mound after being plunked in the head. I wouldn't want to be the pitcher that he was going after, he's huge.

                    I think (Justin) Upton is a little overrated at this point. I think he has the potential to be that good, but they have him at #2 before he even took a major/minor league at bat. Well looks like you guys covered the majority of big name guys in each organization but others to watch out for not on the lists:

                    Gio Gonzalez, P (Phillies)
                    Adam Jones, CF (Mariners)
                    Joel Guzman, OF (Dodgers)
                    Chris Young, OF (D'Backs)
                    Andy LaRoche, 3B (Dodgers - Adam LaRoche's younger brother)
                    Scott Elbert, P (Dodgers)
                    ...etc etc I could go on and on...

                    Basically, the Dodgers, D'Backs, and Angels are pretty stacked and a lot of clubs have even more promising players who you could see in '06 or by '07.

                        Overall looks like a good set of rankings except Cole Hamels as high as 11? You can tell the webmaster is from Philly. Yes, Cole is THAT good, but one has to wonder about a guy who has already battled major injuries and missed time at such a young age, I think just the injury concern surrounding him alone bumps him down possibly out of the top 50.

                          I live in Woodbridge, VA, the home of the Potomac Nationals, the Single-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals. Washington's Top 10 prospects, as chosen by Baseball America, includes 3 pitchers-Colin Balester, Clint Everts, and Mike Hinckley-who have opened 2006 here at Potomac.

                            And Ryan Zimmerman and the Nationals.
