Thanks for the list Seth. I'm surprised you left out your relief pitcher of the year A.J. Achter. I would have thought he'd be in your 30s with the other power bullpen arms.

DJ Hicks is going to be the sleeper prospect.

.He batted .270 in 115 ab, with 7 2b and 4 HR.

I am surprised that Sam Gibbons, a 6'4" 18yo Aussie who was pretty dominant in the GCL, didn't even merit an honorable mention. I thought you were high on him before the season?

I agree with DJ Hicks. He was limited this past short season (injury), but was as clutch as they come in each of his ABs throughout the season & playoffs. He is a lot faster around the bag as well, as a defender (Solid), than he is on the base paths. Crazy pop in his bat to all fields.

Chargeois at 36? I think Sickels had him in his top 20. What's your take on JT Seth?

I think you might have Mata too low. Also what about the 16 year old Dominican shortstop they signed last year?

Achter isn't a power arm in the same way... He's a really good pitcher. He has multiple pitches and he's very smart. I don't think he's got quite the fastball as those other guys, but he's able to hit his spots. I'm a big fan of his, and I think he can reach the big leagues as a long reliever/7th inning type.

He's a solid prospect. Of course, in the Appy League, we should be looking for much bigger numbers than that from a college power hitter. He didn't play every day for the E-Twins. He was a mid-rounds pick (16th/17th round) for a reason. He came up with the biggest hit of the season for the E-Twins in that championship game though.

he's a hard-throwing, 2nd round pick. Sickels generally ranks relief pitchers higher than I do. I typically don't rank them very high at all. So, the fact that the 30s, for me, is filled with relievers is actually quite revealing. I think that, if healthy, he could fly through the system. He could get to Rochester next year. He could be a late-inning reliever, and he's definitely someone to track.

His performance in Venezuela is also saying he's too low on my list. The walks are something to watch, but there's no doubt that Mata has the talent. It'll be interesting to see if they have him start in Cedar Rapids next season.

As for Minier, he'll be on the list in time, for sure. I'd like to see him put up some numbers (besides a big signing bonus) first. His signing bonus was huge though, so it'll be interesting to see if he comes to the States this year and gets time in the GCL.

Seth- Where would Mitch Brown rank on your list based on his brief stint in Arizona? In 27.2 innings he had 26 k's, WHIP of about 1.1 and had a .204 BA against. Would he be ahead of Bard at #23?

Thank you Seth. Fun stuff.
People keep referring to the Arizona Fall League (AFL). I don't get too wrapped up in it. It is, for the most part, a small sample size.
Last year Souhan wrote this big article on Dozier. Acted like Brian was the next Joe Mauer based on good AFL stats.
Hmmm...
