From Xander Bogaerts to Gary Sanchez and everyone in between.

The following is an excerpt from the upcoming Baseball Prospectus Futures Guide 2014, our second-annual prospect book, which will collect all of BP's offseason prospect content (plus exclusive prospect and fantasy offerings) in book and e-book form. Here's a look at last year's book; expect an even more meaty offering this time around.

In an age where there’s more statistical information available on players than ever before, you’ve come to the right place to differentiate yourself from your league-mates. Even if you don’t play in a keeper or dynasty league where you can own minor leaguers without wasting roster spots, the importance of reading scouting reports and knowing who these players are becomes obvious when a few years later you are faced with the dilemma of choosing them for your roster.

The Stash List: A 2014 Preview

4

Bret Sayre

With this season winding down, Bret looks at the players who might populate the first 2014 edition of the list.

With the last week of the season upon us, it’s a good time to take a fun look ahead to next season. And the form that takes today is a stab at what the first installment of the Stash List might look like in six-and-a-half months. And yes, that means the Stash List will live on for another season.

Of course, this sneak preview will only take into account a small part of the player pool that goes into the list, since there will certainly be players who are either injured or beat out for jobs in the spring included come April. But for now, we will roll ahead with the group of players we pay the most attention to—prospects yet to get the call to the majors. And as an added wrinkle, I’m not going to include a few high-profile prospects who I believe have a better than even chance to be on their team’s Opening Day roster. Among those are the following potential future stars:

Jason talks to the Astros top prospect who almost became the first modern minor leaguer to go 40-40.

The only disappointing thing about George Springer’s on-field production in 2013 was that he didn’t become the first player in the modern-era minor leagues to reach the 40 home run, 40 stolen base mark. The 23-year-old outfielder did make some history regardless, as he became the first member of the minor-league 30/30 club since former A’s prospect Grant Desme joined it in a 2009 season split between Low- and High-A.

The Astros' rebuilding effort hinges heavily on the development of Jonathan Singleton and George Springer.

Notes on players in the AFL, DWL, and PRBL.

Jurickson Profar was eight years old when future Licey teammate Jesus Colome made his major league debut in 2001 with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. More than 11 years later, Profar was directly responsible for the 34 year-old Colome winning his first game of the 2012 DWL season. Details below ...

Future Shock: Monday Morning Ten Pack

20

Kevin Goldstein

This weekend saw Trevor Bauer make his Triple-A debut, Dylan Bundy doing it again (with "it" being almost indescribable) and Tim Alderson regaining prospect status.

Tim Alderson, RHP, Pirates (Double-A Altoona)
Alderson was once a hot commodity. A first-round pick by the Giants in 2007, the six-foot-six right-hander burst onto the prospect scene by putting up a 2.79 ERA in the California League as a 19-year-old thanks to average velocity and fantastic command, but the velocity began to slip, and his career seemed to go downhill after a trade to the Pirates for Freddy Sanchez. After a six-plus ERA in 2010 and a move to the bullpen last year, he was all but off the radar. Except a funny thing happened this year, as Alderson changed his approach and took up an arm conditioning program that included long-tossing, and this spring his 85-88 mph suddenly jumped to 90-92. After dominating out of the Altoona pen, he moved to the rotation this month, and on Sunday he fired seven shutout innings while allowing just two hits and touching 93; at just 23, and after a Sunday promotion to Triple-A, he's suddenly a prospect again as a potential back-end rotation piece.
