Baseball Prospectus' top 11 Marlins prospects

New, 2 comments

Baseball Prospectus released their ranking of the top 11 Marlins prospects.  Now this is premium content and if you want to read the whole thing, you need to pay to play.  I pay and maybe you should too.

Will Carroll, who is a great guy, and I have exchange emails about how much I pilfer when the content is premium, and I think this will be okay.  If not, I'm sure he will let me know.

Anyways, here it is:

Five-Star Prospects
1. Cameron Maybin, CF
2. Michael Stanton, RF
3. Matt Dominguez, 3B
Four-Star Prospects
4. Logan Morrison, 1B
5. Kyle Skipworth, C
6. Jose Ceda, RHP
Three-Star Prospects
7. Sean West, LHP
8. Ryan Tucker, RHP 
9. Chris Coghlan, 2B
10. John Raynor, LF
11. Gaby Sanchez1B

Just Missed: Brett Carroll, OF; Scout Cousins, OF; Ike Galloway, OF

If you like to read their explanations for the rankings just click on the link, if you are a member.  If you are not, breakout the credit card, it is money well spent.

Seeing how I have read what they have to say, I won't say much.  Other than, I think Kyle Skipworth is ranked way too high.  Catchers drafted out of high school rarely pan out and one year of data on him isn't enough to warrant the rankings.

But BP knows more than me and everyone has their list and they often differ.  So I could easily be wrong

(Oh, by the way, it is Scott Cousins, not Scout Cousins.  Just letting the powers that be know.)
