Prospect Tracker Adds Leaderboards
Over the weekend, we were busy improving Prospect Tracker 2.0, adding leaderboards and classification and league filtering. On the Prospect Tracker home page, you'll notice a new option — 2012 Leaders:
Clicking that link will take you to the brand new prospect leaderboards. Most other statistical leaderboards out there don't distinguish between prospects and organizational soldiers; the Val Pascuccis of the world are intermingled with the Bryce Harpers and the Manny Machados. Not here. The prospect leaderboards only consider players who were ranked among their organization's top 20 prospects by Kevin Goldstein this past offseason, cutting the pool from roughly 3,000 players on active minor league rosters to just 592 of the best and brightest.
Fantasy players will appreciate the classification and league filtering option available on the leaderboard page. Selecting an option from the drop-down menu allows you to quickly see which prospects are performing well at the highest levels of the minor leagues, giving you an edge on who the next big call-up could be.
We hope you're enjoying the new Prospect Tracker — be on the lookout for more exciting features in the coming weeks!
