3 Twins Prospects Who Have Been Much Better Than Their Numbers Indicate

by Boone on 05-22-2014 at 03:00 PM
Here are three legitimate prospects (all are 1.7 years younger than the average player in their respective leagues, according to Baseball Reference) who, at first glance, appear to be struggling so far in 2014. A closer examination, however, tells a different story:

Taylor Rogers (AA SP)

  • 32.2 IP in 8 GS
  • The bad:
    • 5.36 ERA
    • 1.53 WHIP

  • Why he’s better than his numbers:

The obvious indicator is his 3.50 FIP, almost 2 full runs lower than his ERA;

Danny Santana: Shortstop of the Future?

by Boone on 08-14-2013 at 08:22 AM

Comparing Rosario to Top 2B Prospects

by Boone on 07-15-2013 at 02:52 PM
Heading into the 2013 season, there were 5 2B prospects that were generally considered to be among the top 100 in baseball: Jedd Gyorko of the San Diego Padres, Nick Franklin of the Seattle Mariners, Kolten Wong of the St. Louis Cardinals, Jonathan Schoop of the Baltimore Orioles, and Delino DeShields Jr. of the Houston Astros.
My question is this: how does Eddie Rosario stack-up statistically against these more heavily hyped prospects?

Buyers and Sellers: Examining the Trade Market

by Boone on 07-13-2013 at 08:51 PM
