What Scouts Are Saying: June 25, 2015

4

Baseball Prospectus

Scouts' takes on Jorge Alfaro, Tyler Kolek, Tyler Beede, and other interesting names.

Many of our authors make a habit of speaking to scouts and other talent evaluators in order to bring you the best baseball information available. Not all of the tidbits gleaned from those conversations make it into our articles, but we don't want them to go to waste. Instead, we'll be collecting them in a regular feature called "What Scouts Are Saying," which will be open to participation from the entire BP staff.

The rest of this article is restricted to Baseball Prospectus Subscribers.

The 2014 Redraft

14

Baseball Prospectus

You can get a lot of information on draftees in one year, so here's what the first round of the 2014 draft would look like now.

It has now been 375 days since the first round of the 2014 MLB draft kicked off with the Houston Astros by selecting Brady Aiken. Of course, we know how things have changed with Aiken, who failed to sign, had Tommy John surgery and was drafted 17th overall by Cleveland last week. While the last calendar year or so hasn’t been that eventful for the names below, it’s been eventful enough that we decided it was time to break back out one of our favorite exercises from last year: the redraft.

Our picks for the playoff races and major awards this season.

Today we reveal the Baseball Prospectus staff predictions for the division standings and the major player awards (MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year) in the American and National Leagues. Each staff member's division standings predictions may be found later in the article. Here, we present a wisdom-of-the-crowds summary of the results. In each table you'll find the average rank of each team in their division with first-place votes in parentheses, plus the results of our pre-season MVP, Cy Young, and Rookie of the Year voting.

For the MVP voting, we've slightly amended the traditional points system in place that has been used elsewhere, dropping fourth- and fifth-place votes to make it 10-7-5 for the MVP Award, and the regular 5-3-1 for the Cy Young and Rookie of the Year Awards (that's 5 points for a first-place vote, 3 points for a second-place vote, etc.).
