Comments

  1. (Rockies) You have rated Kandilas way too low and Herrera way too high. And not even a mention of Swanner or Mende?

  2. I can see where you are coming form with Kandilas. I disagree with Herrera though. He has a ton of potential. Kandilas could be as high as 3rd depending on what I put emphasis on.

  3. Do you have any type of scouting report on Radhames Quezada? Velocity? Pitches? Any light you could shed would be greatly appreciated.

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.

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.
