Cape Cod Prospect 2009 review

Last season, I paid little attention to college ball and the summer leagues. I ran my formula on the cape cod league and came up with a list of top prospects. You can view the original post here

1st rounders:
4 Gary Brown
1 Chris Sale

2nd Rounders:
1 Todd Cunningham
14 Jedd Gyorko
20 Jarrett Parker
30 Brett Eibner
6 Daniel Tillman
13 Rob Rasmussen

3rd Rounders:
10 Austin Wates
27 Robert Segedin

4th Rounders:
9 Trent Mummey
12 Chris Bisson
18 Kyle Blair
27 Bryan Morgado

5th Rounders:
9 Justin Grimm

2011 Picks:
Jackie Bradley, potential top 10.
24 Riccio Torrez
28 George Springer
29 Johnny Ruettiger

And a bunch more went in the top 10 rounds. So 1/4 of the guys I posted went in the top 5 rounds. Not real great, but it's a start. I don't know the percentage of players that played in the cape that went in the top 5 rounds but I know I missed out on some. Zach Cox, Alex Wimmers, Jesse Hahn and Brandon Workman are a few that I know I missed. It did catch a few guys for 2011 though. I promise to do better this season. I hope I can make this a favorite spot for you guys to get info for the draft.

  1. My family and I really needed a time out from our work and a friend suggested we go to Cape Cod. When we arrived on Cape Cod, I was surprised that it was a serene place, but there were a lot of fun things to do on Cape Cod! We went sailing in Hyannis Harbor on a sailboat and then we went to Provincetown to watch whales do their thing. The experience was just plain awesome, we all feel energized when we got back to our house.

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.
