Prospect Tracker

by Rob McQuown

Welcome to the inaugural post of Feature Focus! We've spent years building useful baseball products, and we've found that some readers and subscribers are unaware of some of the many great offerings available at Baseball Prospectus. In this series, we'll be highlighting some of those features as a reminder of what you may have been missing. We're kicking things off with a fairly new addition to the site: Prospect Tracker, which gives BP users a convenient method of monitoring the progress and performance of baseball's top prospects.

Prospect Tracker was announced early in 2012, and some new features were added this season to make it even more powerful.

The screenshots above are taken from the 2012 top 101 prospect lists. If you go to the Prospect Tracker page, you'll see leaders (across all levels) in various stats:

Also available are each team's top 10 list from 2013 (and all previous years):

New Features for 2013

Further, for those with teams in dynasty league formats (or who just like following a set group of players), Team Tracker teams are now available. Just select them from the dropdown menu when logged in:

The clean-up hitter of Prospect Tracker features, though, has to be the ability to look at any season's stats for any group of prospects. Simply select the year of prospect rankings in one menu, and then the year of stats in the other menu:

That's a quick walkthrough of Prospect Tracker, which really could be called "Prospect Tracker and Team Tracker for Minor-League Stats." Whatever alias it takes, readers have made it popular. If you haven't been aware of it until now, we hope you'll check it out and incorporate it into your regular BP routine. You can access Prospect Tracker through this link and through the dropdown menu accessible by mousing over the "Prospects" navbar button at the top of any BP page.
