C Jason Castro- he just recently got promoted to AA ball. Right now he is batting .341 with 1 homer and 3 RBI.

SP Bud Norris

SP Felipe Paulino

Next year, remember the names Jordan Lyles and Ross Seaton. Both are starting pitcher that has ace type stuff.

While I admittedly have a very limited knowledge of prospects, I do know enough about the Brewers system to give a few of the Brewers top prospects.

1. Alcides Escobar, SS
2. Mat Gamel, 3B
3. Brett Lawrie, C/2B
4. Jeremy Jeffress, P
5. Angel Salome, C/DH
6. Lorenzo Cain, CF
7. Jonathan Lucroy, C
8. Taylor Green, 3B
and I'm not going to pretend to know much beyond this point. We've got Cutter Dykstra (OF), Caleb Gindl (OF), Cole Gillespie (OF), Jake Odorizzi (P), and others whose names I've seen thrown around.

I'm sure most people here know about Esco and Gamel. Esco's got GG potential at SS, hits for a solid average, and steals a bunch of bases. He'd be an ideal leadoff hitter if he could just get his walks up a bit. He'll probably be starting for the Brewers at some point next year, whether at SS (if we trade JJ) or possibly even 3B.
Gamel is a high-average, solid power guy with terrible defense at 3B. If/when we have to get rid of Prince, he'll likely take over 1B. If we magically find a way to lock up Prince, Gamel would probably take over for Hart in RF, or just tough it out at 3B for awhile. He's up in the majors right now because Bill Hall decided to fall off the face of the earth again.
Lawrie was our first round pick from last year, currently in low-A ball, not doing too bad but not too great either. He's got the best raw power in our system. He was drafted as a catcher, but has been moved to 2B since, and he's not doing too bad there.
If Jeffress could lay off the MJ for long enough to learn how to control his high-90s, occasionally low-100s fastball, he could be an electric closer. If he could gain some control on his change-up and slider (both are considered solid pitches, he just can't hit the zone with them consistently), he has the makings of a possible starter.
Salome should be a high-average guy in the majors, and he has some solid power to go along with it. However, he's only 5'7", so if he can't play catcher, he'll probably have to DH. He could be our starting catcher next year, assuming we let Kendall walk.
Cain is a speed guy with solid defense out in CF. He's hurt right now, but he should have a shot at being our starting CF next year, as Cameron's contract will be up.
Lucroy is just a solid catcher, both offensively and defensively.
And Taylor Green is kind of a tricky player. He can hit for a decent average, has great plate discipline, and plays 3B, which is a position we really have need for in the majors. However, he really doesn't have the power you want out of a 3B, and it's been speculated that he'll be moved to 2B at some point. Then at 2B, he'd be blocked by both Weeks and Lawrie. I see him a as a candidate to get dealt if the Brewers make a deadline deal.

1a) Neftali Feliz
1b) Justin Smoak
3. Martin Perez
4. Wilmer Font- Think Jonathan Broxton as a starter as of now. I think he should eventually become a lights out closer.
5. Julio Borbon
6. Blake Beavan
7. Michael Main- needs to get healthy and meet expectations. Would be number four if production matched potential.
8. Engel Beltre- Sucker for tools
9. Wilfredo Boscan
10a) Neil Ramirez- 95
10b) Joe Wieland

I'm not as high on Kiker as most. I've seen him at AA a couple times and he was hitting high 88 to 91. He had a decent curve but his changeup needed work. Reports have said he can dial it up to 95 for an inning or two. He should end up in the bullpen.

Purke and Scheppers would be 4/5 respectively.

You put the wrong pic and team up.

As for the White Sox, we don't have any elite prospects but some solid ones. Dayan Viciedo, Jordan Danks (John's brother) is flying through the minors, Tyler Flowers, and Brandon Allen are the only ones I think will be solid contributors. Yes, our farm system sucks.

1. LHP Madison Bumgarner

Report- With a mid 90s fastball and developing slider, in addition to sheer dominance at every level so far, Bumgarner is showing ace-like potential and should be the eventual number 2 pitcher behind Lincecum. At the young age of 19 he is already making the front office consider moving him to AAA/MLB w/ his insane numbers

Grade: A

2009 Stats G W-L ERA IP H BB K SV WHIP
CON (sf) AA 7 4-1 2.13 38 31 10 33 0 1.08
SAN (sf) A+ 5 3-1 1.48 24.1 20 4 23 0 0.99




2. C Buster Posey

Report: After winning the Golden Spikes award for being the best overall college player Posey has continued his dominance. Currently hitting .330 w/ 11 HRs in advanced A ball, the front office is now considering bumping him straight to AAA. His bat is MLB ready, as is his defensive makeup, but he is still developing his game-calling ability since he never has had to call a game before professional ball. Projects as a top 3 catcher w/ gold glove potential and a very good bat w/ a high average, OBP, and showing some pop.

Grade: A-

2009 Stats G Bavg OBP SLG HR RBI SB R 2B
SAN (sf) A+ 66 .328 .425 .545 11 48 6 50 20




3. RHP Tim Alderson

Report: Drafted in the same year as Bumgarner, Alderson was called the most MLB ready HS pitcher in the draft. He has continued to show outstanding command and won the advanced single A pitcher of the year at the age of 18 (the youngest pitcher in the league). He continues his dominance this year and is currently in AA but showing he is nearly MLB ready with his maturity. Could see an appearance out of him in late 2009 or at the latest next year. Stuff is very good but not dominant, but he has begun to shoot of prospect boards due to his dominance and pitching ability

Grade: A-

2009 Stats G W-L ERA IP H BB K SV WHIP
CON (sf) AA 7 3-1 1.82 39.2 34 4 34 0 0.96



4. 1B Angel Villalona

Report: Signed out of the DR at the age of 16 w/ supposed 40/40 potential. Although he will never steal the 40 bases (or any bases for that matter) he was projected to, he still holds that 40+ HR potential. He has been the youngest player in his league every year to date and currently is showing off his power in advance A ball at the age of 18. Probably still 2 years away, but he is starting to fulfill that immense potential. Still needs to better his plate discipline, but the power is there.

Grade: B+

2009 Stats G Bavg OBP SLG HR RBI SB R 2B
SAN (sf) A+ 62 .287 .324 .439 9 36 0 40 10



5. 2B Nick Noonan

6. SS Brandon Crawford

7. 3B Conor Gillaspie

8. SP Henry Sosa

9. OF Roger Kieschnick

10. Ehire Adrianza, ss

Other Notables: OF Rafael Rodriguez (16 year old signed out of DR, Vlad /Alex Rios comparisons)

-OF/1B Thomas Neal (currently hitting .340 w/ 13 HRs in high A)

-RHP Zack Wheeler- Giants 1st round pick, selected 7th overall. Features a mid 90s fastball and unlimited potential. Should quickly find his way on this list, probably inbetween Villalona and Noonan.

Some other ones...

Former first round pitchers Mike Jones and Mark Rogers who have battled injuries throughout their career are making a comeback, namely Rogers.

Two other pitchers drafted last year, Seth Lintz and Evan Frederickson, are out of high school and still have a ways to go. Frederickson in particular, has dominant stuff, but struggles with command.

Also, AA/AAA lefty Chris Cody has pitched extremely well this year. AAA pitcher Tim Dillard has been solid, and has a big fastball.

SS Brent Brewer is a great athlete, and could probably play multiple positions. He doesn't hit for a good average as of yet.

New York Yankees:

1. Jesus Montero, 19, C, AA



Hitting machine. Great bat speed and the obvious plus-plus power. Hit .326/.376/.491 as an 18 year old already playing in full season A ball. Started off the year hitting .356/.399/.530 with 8 homers in his first 230 ABs at advance A ball, and when was then promoted to double A at 19. Not a good defender though, as he struggles with blocking the plate and has a poor throwing arm. Probably ends up moving to DH, although he made progress and should get another year to show what he can do behind the plate.

2. Austin Jackson, 22, CF, AAA



Athletic centerfielder with good defense. A poor mans BJ Upton almost. Will steal a lot of bases, there is power potential still there (3 homers, a double, and a triple in 36 spring ABs for a .667 SLG). Will strike out a bit too much. Hasn't shown enough power at AAA. Bottom line he's a solid BA/OBP guy with good speed, defense, and gap power who could start to demonstrate a homerun swing at some point.

3. Dellin Betances, 21, RHP, A+



Betances is a high upside arm who made huge progress last year. He's got a great 6-8 frame, a sinking mid 90s fastball, and a great curve. Last season he struck out more than 10 guys per 9 innings while improving his walk rate to the mid 4's. This season he has regressed a bit as he moved up to A+, but still boasts a huge strikeout rate and a 50%+ groundball rate while limiting opponents linedrives. Still a year or two away, but the upside is massive.

4. Slade Heathcott, 18, CF



Heathcott has just been drafted so this is a bit of a shot in the dark ranking here but I think his upside warrants this position. Heathcott has well above average power and speed, can play a good CF, and has a great arm, hitting mid 90s from the mound. He's very raw though and there are some makeup issues because he hasn't lived with his parents in a few years, though that doesn't seem to be a huge deal.

5. Manny Banuelos, 18, LHP, A



Banuelos is one of my favorite prospects and there is an argument to put him higher on this list. He is very polished for his age, having just turned 18 in March. He has good command of all his pitches, and great poise on the mound. He's kind of small but he has very good stuff, working in the 90-92 range with potential for more, as well as a good changeup and curveball. Some reports have him hitting 94 already. He's got three potentially plus MLB pitches, he's 18, he's poised, and he's a lefty. What else can you ask for? Oh, and as one of the youngest players in A ball this year, Banuelos has a 58/14 K/BB rate in 61 innings, and a 2.61 FIP.


6. Andrew Brackman, 23, RHP, A



7. Zack McAllister, 21, RHP, AA


8. Francisco Cervelli, 23, C, MLB



9. Austin Romine, 20, C, A+



10. Mark Melancon, 24, RHP, AAA



HM: Brett Marshall, Arodys Vizcaino, Jeremy Bleich, Kevin DeLeon, DJ Mitchell, Christian Garcia, Mike Dunn, Pat Venditte.

I did not include Kennedy, but he would probably rank top 3 or 4 on my list. I also did not include Gary Sanchez, the catcher we just signed out of the DR, because I don't know all that much about him but we signed him to a BIG bonus and he's supposed to be a like Jesus, except that he can actually catch, so he'd probably be top 5 as well.
