  1. #144 Hunter May: I have seen May throw on several occassions. His FB tops 90 combined with a ++CU. He throws strikes and hits his spots while pitching to contact. He will throw the CU at anytime in the count. He is highly projectable at 6'3" 187lbs. with tremendous upside as he just turn 17 on 9/22/09. Whoever takes him will have a gem that will improve any pitching staff.

  2. How do you come up with the list of players to rank and what is your method for putting them in order?

    ReplyDelete
  3. I read anything I can find around the internet about prospects and I try to get a variety of information.
    Baseball America, Perfect Game, and ESPN are where I get most of my info. I don't subscribe to PG or prospect plus, as I don't have the cash flow to do it, but I look all over the web. YouTube has videos of some of these guys. Baseball beginnings is a site I just found that has some info on prospects. Andy Seiler has a great blog and Lincoln over at project prospect has some really good info but is mostly college guys.

  4. What about Eric Arce

    ReplyDelete
  5. I saw Harper at the AFLAC and quite frankly was a bit disappointed.

    As good as he has been touted, you'd think he'd at least get one hit...Secondly, I don't see him as a Catcher down the road.

    Gotta Love the Hype.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Your top 10 is dead on. The OF order is more like;
    Keyes
    Wilson
    Brentz
    Sale
    Griffin
    Lorenzen
    Dean
    Parker
    Landry
    Ragira
    Hahn


    3B order;
    Wilson
    Gyorko
    Bryant
    Lewis
    Sanchez
    Antonio
    Allie
    Cowart

    SS order;
    Cabrera
    Dietrich
    Hague
    Lipka
    Rutledge
    Littlewood
    Wolters
    Frey
    Alvord

    Too early to call on P. HS season will dictate further due to health and p velos.

  7. Eric Arce..All I know is he is a C in Georgia and has some power. Good build for a C and has some pop from the left side. Seems to be athletic for his size. Not a top 100 caliber player. Probably not top 100 high schooler but worth tracking.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I think Harper is the real deal, but it was dissappointing to not see him get a hit. I don't think he is enormously ahead of the competition because he will probably end up in the OF, but I still have him as #1.

    Thanks for the comments Ray. I love to hear others ideas. Always makes me take second looks at players. No Machado?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Machado is undoubtedly talented but needs to go to college first. Would like to see him fill out more in coming year. These lists are just a starting point, they will change numerous times as draft approaches.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Yeah, mine has already changed. I think Machado is a mid first round guy and will prove that this spring.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Looking at my OF list I ommitted a major OF prospect - Choice. After his summer and performance at the Mavs scout day he falls Keyes
    Wilson
    Choice
    Brentz
    Sale
    Griffin
    Lorenzen
    Dean
    Parker
    Landry
    Ragira
    Hahn

    P(rough estimate) and C to follow.

    Looks like Baseball America needs to update their 2010 prospects.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Eric Arce was arguably the best hitter at East Cobb this year and that is saying a lot. There are many very good hitters out at the Cobb but all Summer Arce seemed to rise to the top. In Jupiter he won the PerfectGame Bo Jackson 5 Tool best hitter award.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Nice post. I agree that Machado is a mid first round guy. He had an outstanding summer and he will be given 3-5 years to fill out in the minor leagues. Do you have a list for the top 2011 draft kids? What can you tell me about Travis Harrison, Christain Lopes, Eric Synder, Deion Williams, Nick Delmonico

    ReplyDelete
  15. East Cobb guys do have a long line of success. Maybe I am under rating Arce.

    I don't have much info on 2011 guys. I probably won't look at the 2011 draft for a while. Maybe in Spring.

    Working on my overall rankings list right now.

    The prospects plus link doesn't work for me. I'm not a subsciber there. Just can't afford it.

  16. The 2010 kid Arce who now lives in Georgia was at Lakeland High with Yordy Cabrera in Florida. He was the starting catcher for 6A Lakeland and they were ranked as high as #2 in the Nation at one time. He played on the All American Prospects with Cabrera and Castellanos last year and was part of the 2008 WWBA Underclass Championship team with the Prospects and the Mickey Mantle World Series team. He led the AAP team in home-runs and extra base-hits last summer. This year he moved to Georgia and was the MVP of the 18u WWBA with the East Cobb Braves. Perfectgame article said that he led the Braves in homers, rbi's and batting average. I just found out that he had to de-commit from Ga Tech because they would not accept some of his Florida Home-school credits and needed to go to committee for him. He was offered by Florida State and that is where he will sign.

  17. Tyler Austin has been starting since his freshman yr at Heritage high school in Conyers Ga where Trey Griffen played as a freshman and since gone to another school as a sophmore hit 19 homeruns and batted over 600 pretty dang good and coming from a power house program

    ReplyDelete
  18. I saw Arce along with Griffin, and Palka at a workout last week. Griffin seemed to be hitting alright but Arce and Palka went off. I don't think Palka hit any balls inside the right or left field fence in the last two rounds. Arce did the same. They are both lefties with some undoubtable power.

    ReplyDelete
  19. What about Konner Wade? I saw him at the AZ senior classic.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I don't know much about Wade. Sorry. He looks athletic and throws in the upper 80's but that's about all I know. If you've seen him, you know more than me.

    ReplyDelete
  21. The of.1b paulka drops tanks saw him play in atlanta for two weeks hit over 10 hrs

    ReplyDelete
  22. joc pederson is a genuine faggot. terrible kid. worse attitude than athletic ability, and that's saying something. deserves to be on top 100 d-bags.

    ReplyDelete
  23. this is joc and u are a d bag johny i know its you. get a life loser poopy head

    ReplyDelete
  24. When all said and done, Ben Klafczynski will make it

    ReplyDelete
  25. What about Tyler Austin from Heritage High school Conyers Ga.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Tyler Austin is definitely a great player and should be listed as one of the top players, but don't use Trey Griffin as a comparison. Totally different players! and starting for 4 years in HS doesn't mean a thing. Most HS programs are all about politics anyway.

    -saw him in some perfect game events summer 09 Definatly number one guy in sc where is he going to school?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Any thoughts on the Forte kid out of Rockdale?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Nakeem Forte isn't a name on my board. From what I found online, he's a skinny kid with some speed. He has some skill and could be on more radars with a good spring

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think he transferred from Rockdale High to Heritage in Conyers, from what I understand he's a solid player. I also heard that Heritage has an upcoming 10th grader SS/2B that has all the tools, but they are not even playing him. So much for High School ball.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I agree I saw Wade recently against Desert Ridge High School and he can play. He's tall, lean, and athletic. I'd be surprised if he didn't make his way onto this list. Arizona commit if I remember.

    ReplyDelete
  32. What about kellin deglan? top 3 canadian prospect compared to joe mauer. very good and you have like 18th ranked canadians. id say deglan with go top two rounds for sure if has a good hs season he will be top 60 pick

    ReplyDelete
  33. He was #152 on my top 300 found here:
    http://milbprospects.blogspot.com/2010/02/top-300-2010-mlb-draft-prospects.html
    This was a very early list and it is a work in progress.
    I don't see him as a Mauer type, but he could be a solid catcher with decent offensive skills. I haven't heard how he's doing this spring, but if a team is willing to wait for him to develop, they could take him as high as the 2nd round.

  34. David Bingham,

    Daniel Palka signed with georgia tech. Anyone know if he is still playin qb and baseball next year? seen him play in perfect game atl mlb power
