League Preview Series

2

Tucker Blair

The league previews of the minors continues with a look at the Southern League.

The Double-A level will be a test for many of the following prospects, but the Southern League is gleaming with talent heading into the 2015 season. A good portion of prospects from our Top 101 will play most of the season in this league, and many more will trickle up through the ranks during the year. Double-A is a dramatic training ground in player development, and many questions are answered during this time.

The 40-Man Additions

0

Tucker Blair and Jeff Moore

Top prospects, organizational depth, and others added to 40-man rosters in anticipation of the Rule 5 Draft.

Late last week, teams faced a deadline to add minor leaguers—or, at least, those who meet minimum professional experience requirements—to the 40-man roster or risk losing them in the Rule 5 draft in San Diego next month. The deadline forces teams to make decisions on which players are most likely to be taken, and which would hurt the most to lose. Some of the most significant additions:

Prospect Debate: Steven Moya's Feast or Famine

5

Jeff Moore, Mark Anderson and Tucker Blair

In Steven Moya's first big test, he showed massive raw power and a terrifying K:BB ratio. Which indicator will win out?

Some prospects inspire a strong consensus among scouts. The tools and projection are easy to see; we know a player is going to be good, so it’s only a matter of how good. With other prospects, however, there can be a much wider range of opinions. Two scouts can see the same thing from the same player and come up with two totally different sets of opinions. It happens in the seats behind the plate, in meeting rooms before the draft, and in many of the discussions behind the scenes here at BP. To me, this is one of the best parts about scouting. Sometimes there are no right or wrong answers, or at least not ones we’ll know for a few years.
