Top Prospect Results 4-10-13

I plan on doing this once a week, as long as there is interest(pageviews). My plan for now is to run them Thursday night and post them Friday. It will help keep a handle on players who are having good seasons and good weeks. These are the top 20 pitchers and hitters at each level so far this season.
The formula is what I have based my entire projection system on, so if these seem like good lists based on stats and potential, you will like my other work, or vice versa. The players on these lists should be good prospects, not just old players having good seasons. Some will sneak in early (Jim Negrych) but it should get better as the season progresses.

  1. Kyle Zimmer looks like a good candidate to add to the list. 16Ks through 11 IP 2BBs. Only bad part is his team hasn't given him a W.

  2. At the time I ran it, he only had 5 IP. Should jump up this week.

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.
