The TD list and the Bowden rankings

 

Once again I am interested in the ratings of Bowden just to give us a national perspective. This is not about right or wrong. I cannot judge any of them, but I do enjoy the ratings:

 

 

20. Jose Miranda, 2B/3B

19. Jorge Alcala, RHP

18. LaMonte Wade, OF

17. Zack Littell, RHP

16. Gilberto Celestino, OF

15. Yunior Severino, 2B

14. Ben Rortvedt, C

13. Ryan Jeffers, C

12. Stephen Gonsalves, LHP

11. Nick Gordon, SS 177

10. Akil Baddoo, OF Balazovic 170

9. Blayne Enlow, RHP

8. Lewis Thorpe, LHP 162

7. Jhoan Duran, RHP 181

6. Brent Rooker, 1B/LF

5. Wander Javier, SS

4. Trevor Larnach, OF

3. Brusdar Graterol, RHP 66

2. Alex Kirilloff, OF 10

TD Top Prospect: #1- Royce Lewis 7

The result of Bowdens ratings would have the top rookies for the Twins as

1. Lewis

2. Kiriloff

3. Graterol

4. Thorpe

5. Balazovic

6. Gordon

7. Duran

I like this rating, but I am not an expert on prospects (not even close).

Nice to see Bowden give Thorpe some love.  Thorpe's K9 has been real good and his WHIP OK.  Seems like he should be up there.

 

I am not surprised that he didn't include Larnach as he hasn't been around long and didn't completely dominate while at A ball.

 

Javier didn't play last year so not surprised he isn't on the list.

 

Rooker still has contact issue's and his only real skill is his power. So kind of one dimensional and with his age and the K rate not really someone who would be on my list.

 

The only glaring omission from TD that I see is Balazovic.  I think the group underestimated how good of a year the young man had in A ball.  He was quite young for the level and seemed to kind of dominate most of the time.

Regarding Larnach...  a .297/.373/.505 slash line at Cedar Rapids was pretty solid.  The thing with Trevor is that he doesn't have that one or two elite tools that some of the other top prospects in baseball have.    I guess I'd still have him in the top 5 prospects for the Twins.though.

My Bad on Larnach.  I thought he was under 800 for OPS.  I must have read that wrong. I don't know why but he hasn't gotten much love in the top 100 or top 150 lists.  Must not be as well rounded as some but given his numbers so far the bat looks legit.
