  1. Nice site - just came across it.

    Chris Lambert has been with Baltimore since late last summer. Dusty Ryan was traded over the offseason to SD.

    IMO, Satterwhite should be in the 15-20 range at worst. Again, IMO, Thad Weber should be on here; not Jonah Nickerson.

  2. No offense but there are mistakes all over your lists. Don't know where you are getting the idea that a guy like Nickerson would sniff the top 40, or that Brandon Douglas is a SS, or that Dixon Machado who hasn't made it to the states should be ranked ahead of a toolsy Audy Ciriaco who keeps improving, or that even if he was on our team still, Chris Lambert would definitely not be in the top 10.

  3. oh and gustavo nunez is a SS. And Jay Sborz who probably will spend some time on the Tigers roster this year, I would think would have to be in there.

  4. Mistakes need to have proof that they are wrong. They are differences of opinion.
    Nickserson had a decent 2008 season and fell off in AA in 09 and is the 1338th best prospect in baseball, so don't get too upset over his ranking. Douglas has played more games a7 2B, heres a breakdown.2B-81, SS-59, 3B-5. Sborz is at 43 and I like Lambert.
    These are differences of opinion, not mistakes. I will look more at Ciriaco, I may have him lower than I should, I'll look into it

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.
