  1. A little surprised to not see J.D. Martinez here. I think this guy deserves some respect. Hit .348 last season and .362 with 15 Homers in the SAL this season before moving up to AA and hitting .300. I mean I know he is 23 but he is only in his 2nd season as a pro with video game like batting averages. Curious in your reasoning behind leaving him off?

    Also I like what you are doing with this site. I'm always interested in new perspectives on prospects.

  2. Thanks Jordan.
    He didn't miss by a lot. He rated below the others mostly because of age. His speed and walk ratings were at league average. His k rate was a 59 on the 20-80 scale and his hitting and power were 76 and 72 respectively. Very nice player to watch in AA next year.

  3. Six Phillies on the list and five Red Sox, but only one Pirate, one Oriole ... the rich get richer

  4. Things are changing. The Pirates had a great draft and the Orioles are improving. I don't like the guys the O's spent on as much as the Pirates did, but next year both teams could have a few solid prospects on here. The Red Sox had an amazing draft though, so that's not going to change.

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.
