How are all of the Top 11's not out yet?
Is Ariel Pena really 30?
I don't have any evidence for this claim but... no chance. That would be the first time that the top 3 SS in the low minors/HS all panned out and reached their theoretical ceilings. There is a better chance that none of them ever make a single all-star game. Top shortstop prospects don't usually pan out or are moved off the position. See Alicedes Escobar, Tim Beckham, Mike Moustakas, Brandon Wood, Justin Upton, Joel Guzman, Jose Reyes, Wilson Betemit, BJ Upton, and the legendary Antonio Perez... plus other gems such as Reid Brignac, Gordon Beckham, Chris Nelson, Matt Bush and Angel Berroa. There is one star SS in that group but mostly busts and center fielders. That was literally the top SS for the past 10 years.
In my opinion the 3 you are referring to don't have near the ceiling that many of the aforementioned busts did. Those 3 fit much more into the Elvis Andrus mold than an offensive force at the position.
Add another to the list that saw Price pitch several MLB games without being overly impressed. Seemed like he was 92-93 with a flat slider at times and no other usefull offerings.
