No "top shortstops 25 & under"?

I wondered this too, since you mentioned in the 2B comments that Profar would be getting love here.

Indeed. Starlin Castro (443.5), Elvis Andrus (305.7), Jean Segura (145.3), Correa, and Jurickson Profar (118.4) are your leaders.

I would just like to point out that PECOTA loves it some Ruben Tejada, he has higher UPSIDE than Correra or Profar ! This is truly prescient given the way Ruben has discovered his power stroke in the last week.

Who are the two major leaguers with the OBPs north of .370 and ISO below .110?

Brett Gardner ('10) and Jon Jay ('12). I believe I instituted a PA minimum of 400.

His long-term projections are pretty good for someone with mostly Rookie League stats; his UPSIDE is 20.2. Ask PECOTA again in a year though. It's hard to form concrete takeaways from 39 games of rookie league stats. Nice to see him hitting this year in Lakewood though--one of the lowest run environments in Low-A.

Jace Peterson seemed like the kind of solid all around performance prospect that PECOTA might shine a light on, but no such luck. He's been quite good in the minors this year (I know that didn't go into this) and is up with the Pads now. Was he in the ballpark of the bottom of the list?

He was (16.9). If Peterson's production took place in Triple-A, PECOTA would make a better case. It's tough to keep up with the talent here as a 23-year-old in High-A; it pushes his suggested MLB debut time into his late 20s (very rarely does a prospect jump from High-A to MLB and stay there, so PECOTA will think you need AA/AAA training time). And the late 20s might be when power ultimately manifests, but athleticism is more of an early-mid 20s peak. Basically, he's too old for the level.

Kinda thought Tim Anderson would make an appearance on this list. He's been tearing it up of late.
