Gulf Coast League Top Prospects

Gary Sanchez demolished the GCL and landed at the top of the list because of it. Sano did well in the DSL before coming to the GCL and showing why the Twins maid him a rich man last season. Flores did very well and even got a few at bats in Hi A ball to end the season. The young German Max Kepler showed off his fantastic athletic ability along with a pretty swing. Juan Urbina has good pitching genetics and great ability to go with it. Eddie Rosario draws Bobby Abreu comparisons and put up Abreu-like numbers in his debut. Marisnick is a potential 5 tool outfielder as is Cayonez. Vinicio joins a loaded Red Sox system but needs to walk a little more. Polanco is known more for his defense than bat but made contact 94% of the time and was only 16.

  1. Agree with top 4, but no Cameron Coffey?

  2. On potential, he could be on the list, but he only threw 11 innings and got hit hard. If I remember right, it's been a little over a year since he had TJ. Most pitchers need 18 months to recover from the surgery, so I expect him to have a better season next year.

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.
