I don't love these but it's pretty tough to do a deep statistical analysis on a short season league, but this is what I've got. Let me know what you think.

  1. Wondering what your formula for these rankings was, as a big follower of the league it seems that there were some big oversights on the list. Cox, Workman, and Wimmers to name a few. Anyways, you obviously put some time into this so hopefully you can enlighten me as to what the weighted components were. Keep up the good work, and I will continue to check in!

  2. I use a combination of things, my own mess I came up with. I use K, BB, HA, ER, IP, HRA and Wins for pitchers and R, RBI, BB, AB, K, 3B, SB, TB for hitters. They are turned into scores to calc control, dominance, consistency, power, speed, eye, contact, etc.. I know I use Wins and RBI that could mess up the system because they are not earned simply on a players merits, but they do help to weed out poorer players sometimes.
    Workman got hit kind of hard, but as it looks right now, I have him as a top 15 prospect in next years draft. Cox didn't play enough to draw a good sample size from but looks to be a top 10 pick next year potentially. Wimmers slipped through the cracks. The fact he gave up 2 HR's dropped his value enough to keep him off the list. He looks like a 20-25 overall kind of guy to me. Thanks for pointing these guys out. It may help me improve my system.

Catchers By Age

The best way to analyze prospects is using their age in relation to the level they are playing at. Without taking too much of the level into account to start, I'll just be looking at age. I use a players age based on the date that MLB uses to define whether a player will be a draft eligible sophomore, because much of my analysis originates with a players drafted year. If a player is 26.01 on that date, he falls into the 26 year old age category. The age won't always match what is listed on Baseball Reference or FanGraphs but that is how I do it. If I don't have a players birthdate, I use the age listed on Baseball Reference.

Catchers typically progress slower than players at most other positions. The average time for a  college catcher to make it to the majors is 4.15 years. The average for a high school catchers is 5.27 years. This time can be reduced if a player has a higher skill level. Elite players only take 3.04 years out of college and 4.09 out of high school.
