Updated prospect lists
Posted 06 December 2012 - 12:14 PM
Here is mine, I am going off my opinion and what I have personally seen in the prospects
I think the top 6 (in some order) are pretty settled. Sano, Buxton, Hicks, Arcia, Gibson, Meyer. Rosario, May, Berrios, Kepler and are 7-10, in some order.

I'm putting him ahead of Berrios and kepler until they do something in full season ball. May has some big issues though. Berrios and Kepler could fly up this list next season though.
Almost assured coming off the list:
Potentially coming off the list:
That's 4 of our top 10 potentially getting enough PT to no longer be "prospects". So, while I know this was not exactly what you meant by "flying up the lists", I think it's safe to say our Top 10 entering 2014 will be much different than entering 2013.

Of course. All I'm saying is that I have conservatively ranked Kepler and Berrios. The reason that I say fly up lists is that they could go from outside of the top 100 overall to top 50 prospects next season. Or they could go Angel Morales although they look better than he did. His K's were always a big flag and they were his undoing.
I understood that Kab, sorry if you thought I was putting words in your mouth...I wasn't trying to. Your post just made me think about how different that list will look a year from now that's all. Of course with Willingham and Morneau still in the stable perhaps it will look different yet in another month.

IMO you can change 6-8 out for the most part. I like Gibson because I think he is ML ready and can be a solid #2. May over Rosario because of doubts of him sticking in 2B.
All top 8 guys will see there names on some top 100 prospect lists (all 8 are on scouting book.com currently, May is 58), and I think there is a decent chance Keppler and Berrios could crack some mid season lists.

I just posted this on Twitter a bit ago:
My new updated Top 10 Twins prospects: Sano, Buxton, Arcia, Meyer, Hicks, Gibson, May, Rosario, Berrios, Kepler.
Compare that list to what the Twins had in May of this year.
Then compare that list to what was there in May of 2009. Quite the difference.
