  1. pretty sure lyles will be in AA skipping lancaster's HR haven.

  2. I bet you're right. I'll update that

  3. Arrieta is going to start at AAA again, not MLB. Pretty sure. there is no rotation spot for him unless there is an injury.

  4. And Britton is starting at Bowie, hes not skipping AAA.

  5. I think Arrieta is going to start in AAA, but move up to the bigs later in the year.

  6. Oh its what level you think they will be at at the end of the year?

  7. It's the levels I think they'll play at this season.

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.

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.
