Not to be technical here, but is Tanaka really a "prospect"? 25 years old, $155M contract. years of pro ball in Japan.

In the comments Sickels mentions loving Lewis Thorpe, so there's that. He admits there's some risk in projecting him too much since he has hasn't made it to A ball yet but still nice to see him get some love.

According to major league baseball's rookie status rules he is a prospect. While stupid, that is how it works.
