I'd say you did very well with your projections. Benson and Wimmers were just plain unfortunate. Thanks for the update.*

Any idea where Buxton and Berrios fit in next year?
Some people are putting Buxton in front of Sano. But I would disagree.

Benson, Wimmers and Salcedo's down years are very much injury-related. Hopefully they can all work through their rehabs/recovery and come back next year.
I think Buxton and Berrios start next season in Beloit. I think it would be good for Buxton to go play in Elizabethton some more for his development. I could certainly see a scenario where both went to Extended Spring Training, but both moved up to Beloit before the short-seasons start. For Berrios, it would be to control his innings. And, if they're in Beloit, they may not want him throwing in 30 degree weather.
I can't put Buxton ahead of Sano at this time either.

"Assuming his age is legit...."
I hope this is the last time I ever read this, but I know we'll hear it throughout his career. It's very convincing in Pelotero that he did about 5 times what's expected out of most players to prove his age. And even then most teams shied away. It cost his family a good chunk of money and he'll probably never escape it even though it was only rumor-mongering by a corrupt scout trying to scare the Yankees and Red Sox away.
