2010 Top Pitching Prospect Projections

These are my projections for the top pitching prospects in baseball for the 2010 season.

I should be done with the hitters tomorrow.

My Method and my book

I get a lot of questions on what I use for methodology.
I use a combination of things, my own mess I came up with. I use K, BB, HA, ER, IP, HRA and Wins for pitchers and R, RBI, BB, AB, K, 3B, SB, TB for hitters. They are turned into scores to calc control, dominance, consistency, power, speed, eye, contact, etc.. I know I use Wins and RBI that could mess up the system because they are not earned simply on a players merits, but they do help to weed out poorer players sometimes. That is just the stats. I also take into consideration signing bonus/draft status for new draftees and my previous seasons rankings. After that is done, I went thru and put a score for floor and ceiling for all of these guys. The international guys got similar scores, just because I don't konw much about them. That's why some are bunched together by team.

Catchers

I have 34 rated as potential major leaguers. This doesn't mean they will all have the opportunity, but they could not make total asses of themselves.

I have one player rated as a potentail all time great, although he may not stay at C. That would be Jesus Montero.

I have 8 that could be superstar level players. Buster Posey and Carlos Santana are in this and at the low end of this is Kyle Skipworth. He may not get past AA, but the Joe Mauer comparisons out of high school will keep him on my radar for a couple more seasons, though his ceiling could drop or his floor could increase.

35 more could be solid starters. These are highlighted by Wilson Ramos and Tony Sanchez and range down to Omar Narvaez and Jorge Alfaro. Some of these guys have floors of middle level minor leaguers, though. This means they could never get passed high a ball, but they do have that possibility.

A couple of players that project to be a starter on some teams that I like are Carlos Ramirez and Lou Marson. One g…

Finished with my top 2029!!

After using several formulas and combining the results, factoring in draft status and signing bonus information, age, league and many, many other things...I'm done.

I have rated each person's ceiling and floor based on a 1-10 rating:
Hitters
10 All-time great
9 Superstar
8 Solid Starter
7 Starter on some teams
6 Part-time player
5 bench warmer
4 top level minor leaguer
3 middle level minor leaguer
2 low level minor leaguer
1 won't last long

Pitchers
10 All-time great
9 Ace
8 #1 or #2, Closer
7 #3-5, Setup man
6 swingman
5 12th pitcher
4 top level minor leaguer
3 middle level minor leaguer
2 low level minor leaguer
1 won't last long

Players with a lot of tools at low levels are given higher ceiling ratings and lower floor ratings. As they move up thru the minors, their floor will typically increase and ceiling will typically drop. Some players will increase both ways, some will decrease both ways...you get the picture.

Each player has a numerical rating and using the average and standard deviat…
