Notes on 12 prospects, including Astros first baseman Japhet Amador and Royals righty Jason Adam.

Hitter of the Day: Japhet Amador, 1B, Astros (Peoria Javelinas): 2-4, R, HR, K. Amador has hit well this fall, albeit with an extremely aggressive approach at the plate (17 strikeouts, one walk in the AFL). It’s no surprise that he’s done well against AFL competition, given his success in the Mexican league, which is somewhere comparable to the upper minors in terms of competition. The questions remains how he’ll do against major league pitching.

Pitcher of the Day: Jason Adam, RHP, Royals (Peoria Javelinas): 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K. The erratic fall for Adam continued on Wednesday, as he mixed in a good start with his prior poor outings. His stuff is better than the numbers look at the end of the year, and outings like this are an indication of what he’s capable of doing when he puts it together.

Notes on 10 prospects, including Athletics shortstop Addison Russell and Royals right-hander Jason Adam.

Hitter of the Day: Addison Russell, SS, Athletics (Mesa Solar Sox): 2-5, R, 2B, HR. It would be understandable if Russell was wearing down playing extended games at the end of his first full season. We saw the same thing happen with Mike Trout in his time in the AFL, and it didn’t exactly slow him down. Russell was hitting just .217 before Monday, but he displayed why he is one of the best prospects in baseball with a multi-extra-base hit game.

Pitcher of the Day: Jason Adam, RHP, Royals (Peoria Javelinas): 4 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 4 K. Adam has now turned in two straight strong starts after a rough first AFL outing, and it Monday’s outing was his most impressive, missing more bats than he typically does.

Jason has more notes on Royals and Indians prospects from his recent trip to Delaware.

“Baseball is my stereo, and this ain't no garden party, brother, this is wrestling, where only the strongest survive.” –Ric Flair

I just returned home from a five-day scouting expedition, where I saw organizational players and prospects alike recite their lines on the advanced A-ball stage. Wilmington, Delaware was the setting for this theater, and I probably escaped the state with more stories that originated outside the ballpark than on the field itself, and trust me, I was able to gather plenty of stories from the action taking place on the field. My next article might have to focus on the eclectic cab driver who took a casual conversation about adult metabolism and escalated it into a tale of karate and gunfights, the 30-year-old hotel bartender who foolishly thought he could play shortstop in the high minors, and the previously mentioned girl on the bus, who looked like a toy, complete with the plastic package that separates the product from the hands of the outside world, but baseball is still fresh on my mind, and the notes from the Wilmington Blue Rocks/Carolina Mudcats series are playing on repeat in my head. I was sad to leave the scene of the crime, but happy to find comfort in the documented history of my travels, the scouting scribbles on prospects like Royals right-hander Jason Adam and Indians middle-infielders Ronny Rodriguez and Tony Wolters. Let’s just do this.

How D.J. Mitchell might be the first Yankee pitcher to get called up this year and notes on 28 more prospects.

D.J. Mitchell, RHP, Yankees (Triple-A Empire State): 8 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K.

Mitchell is not the best prospect on the Yankees Triple-A staff, but don't be surprised if he's the first to the majors. Scouts think he could be effective as either a back-end starter or middle reliever, as while he's on the small side, he's ultra-athletic and features a fastball that has slightly above-average velocity and plenty of movement. He's not going to be a star, but he should have big league value, even on a championship-level roster.

Is our prospect guru going to jump off the bandwagon on some of his top prospects of 2011?

Who: Christian Bethancourt (Braves)
Background with Player: My own eyes; information from industry sources
Documented Observations and Prognostications: For nearly two years, I’ve been waxing hyperbolic on Bethancourt’s skill set, at times saying he might be the best catching prospect in the minors. On a raw tool front, I have put Bethancourt’s arm strength and release from behind the plate as 80-grade attributes, as I’ve clocked pop times under 1.8 and others (sources) have clocked him even faster (1.65). In fact, 80-grade might not do his raw arm strength justice; if you can’t tell, his arm is insanely strong.

At the plate, the Panamanian catcher has crazy pop, using his raw strength and fast hands to spray balls to all fields. While his batting-practice displays can slick your hair up Teddy-boy style, the translation to game action has been slow. While he’s immature with the total skill package, the promise is overwhelming. I absolutely love Bethancourt, and I think he is going to be a star.

Do early-season phenoms fade once the rest of the league learns to stop giving them pitches to hit?

Believe it or not, most of our writers didn't enter the world sporting an @baseballprospectus.com address; with a few exceptions, they started out somewhere else. In an effort to up your reading pleasure while tipping our caps to some of the most illuminating work being done elsewhere on the internet, we'll be yielding the stage once a week to the best and brightest baseball writers, researchers and thinkers from outside of the BP umbrella.

Pegging BP's favorites in both leagues, in the standings and for the major awards.

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. Picking favorites for the Wild Card for the respective leagues initially might have seemed easy, since the selections universally favored the second-place team in the AL East, while all but two voters picked their second-place teams in the NL East to earn the non-division champ playoff team, but a tie in the rankings had to be broken in favor of the team named the Wild Card winner on the most individual ballots, which is sure to upset some people.

For the MVP voting, we've slightly amended the traditional points system in place that's 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.). Next to each of these selections we've listed the total number of ballots, followed by the total number of points, and then the number of first-place votes in parentheses, if any were received.
