So prospect afficionado Kevin Goldstein has his top 101 prospect list up at Baseball Prospectus, not behind a paywall thank goodness. We have seen enough to expect Jonathan Singleton, Jarred Cosart and George Springer to feature, but in what order?â†µ
Surprisingly Goldstein obviously is not hung up on Cosart's deficiencies as many people are. Given the salivating over Jarrod Parker when he was traded from the Diamondbacks to the A's, to find Cosart ahead is surprising at 48. Even more surprising is Springer at 49. People said he was the second best college bat behind Anthony Rendon in the 2011 draft class, but all has been quiet since he was drafted, as far as the national press goes. Singleton slides down to 73, but two ahead of Anthony Rizzo, now with the Cubs.
Jordan Lyles was #59 last year, with Delino DeShields was #82 (ouch, still a long way to go Delino).â†µ
Next on your calender is Marc Hulet from FanGraphs who will likely tear the franchise apart in the coming weeks.â†µ
