Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras leads the way as the first 28 prospects come off the board.

Sometimes there’s just a more fun way to do things. I am currently in the final stages of drafting my Top 100 Fantasy Prospects list (which will hit BP in mid-February), but everyone does lists. What everyone doesn’t do is gather together a whole bunch of experts across the industry, from both a fantasy and scouting perspective, to gather in one e-mail chain and draft 140 of their favorites. Last month, I sent out the bat signal to people who really know and love prospects—and from that alarm, a group of 14 have assembled to carry out this exercise with much aplomb. We hope you have half as much fun reading about this draft as we had carrying it out.

But first, we must examine the parameters. There are always parameters. These were the instructions for the participants of this draft, straight from the email I sent out prior to kickoff:

Minor League Update: Games of June 28-30

Zach Mortimer

Another impressive outing from Noah Syndergaard, another power display from Miguel Sano, and a no-hitter from a knuckleballer—this weekend had a little bit of everything.

Games of Friday, June 28

Pitching Prospect of the Day: Cory Mazzoni, RHP, Mets (Double-A Binghamton): 6.0 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 10 K. I hate to say that I may have given a false sense of confidence to Mets fans, but I previously talked to a bunch of scouts that thought Mazzoni was going to stay as a starter moving forward. Recently, I’ve talked to more scouts who think that Mazzoni will be better utilized in the bullpen.

Fantasy Freestyle: The Myths of Minor-League Strikeouts

7

Bret Sayre

Bret explains why high minor-league strikeout rates don't always portend low batting averages when a player reaches the majors.

It gets talked about a lot; we are living through a golden age of strikeouts in baseball. And there are plenty of potential reasons for this, which are thrown out during the discussion. Some say that it’s just a talent surge on the pitching side of the equation that will correct itself during the next cycle. Some say it’s an overall lack of a two-strike mentality among hitters in the game today. Some say the sabermetric movement has reduced the fear and shame associated with striking out. Some say it’s sunscreen.

Regardless of what the true reasoning is (though it’s likely a combination of all of the above and more), we are where we are at the major-league level. But what does that mean for minor-league strikeout rates? Are contact rates in the minors decreasing at the same level that we see across the highest level of the game? The answer is that it depends how advanced the league is.

BP Prospect Staff

Checking in on Oscar Taveras, Miguel Sano, Gabriel Guerrero, and others.

Michael Wacha, RHP, Cardinals (Triple-A Memphis)
The Cardinals’ top pick in the 2012 draft, Wacha received an aggressive assignment to Triple-A Memphis despite logging just 21 pro innings last summer. He is proving plenty apt for the challenge, posting a 1.99 ERA while yielding just 27 hits in 40 2/3 innings. Regarded as a polished arm as an amateur at Texas A&M, Wacha has made some quick strides as a pro. The progression hasn’t really changed his projection as a no. 3 starter, but he’s perhaps closer to realizing that potential than initially thought.

The 21-year-old righty has shown lots of polish early this season, pounding the strike zone with a three-pitch mix that includes a 90-95 mph fastball. He generates a steep downhill plane from his 6-foot-6 frame. His secondary pitches play well off the fastball––particularly his deceptive low-80s changeup, which is already a plus offering. Wacha’s curveball has been a key development since college; it’s presently average to solid-average and should become a third plus in the near future.

Minor League Update: Games of December 18

Notes from around the Caribbean Winter Leagues

It was an interesting night in the Dominican Winter League. This kid named Miguel Sano went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts. He must be terrible, right? Wait a minute. I'll search the internet and find some info on him. Oh, never mind. He hit 28 homers in Lo-A ball as a 19 year-old and those prospect geeks here at Baseball Prospectus are supposedly ranking him in the Top 25 of their upcoming Top 101 Prospects List. Must’ve been an off night. I also noticed that this guy named Manny had four hits in his game. Figured he must be in this top 101, too. He wasn’t. It turns out he's an older guy that debuted in the majors way before the invention of prospect ranking.

Notes from around the Caribbean Winter Leagues.

There was all kinds of awesomeness going on in the Dominican Winter League this weekend. And the best part wasn't even 37 year-old Julio Lugo's five-hit game for Escogido. It seems that Randall Delgado and Julio Teheran aren't going to wait until Spring Training to start competing for the #5 starter spot in the Braves' rotation. The 22 year-old Delgado had a solid start for Licey on Saturday, allowing 2 ER in 5 innings with 1 walk and 6 strikeouts. Teheran was better, though, tossing one-hit ball over six scoreless innings with no walks and eight strikeouts on Sunday. Over his last three starts, the 21 year-old has pitched 16.2 scoreless innings with only two hits allowed, 4 walks, and 15 strikeouts. When he does things like that, we're reminded that he was, and probably still is, one of the top pitching prospects in baseball.

Prospect Debate: Buxton or Sano for Twins Top Prospect?

24

BP Prospect Staff

The BP prospect team has its say about the leading candidates for the top spot in the Minnesota system.

As Jason Parks noted in his prospect rankings primer, this year’s rankings are the product of a collaborative process. Before each system’s prospect list is finalized, members of the BP prospect team trade emails about the players involved, enriching the rankings with their own opinions and perspectives. We’ll be publishing excerpts from the best of those discussions throughout the offseason, generally the day after the prospect lists in question appear. Some exchanges have been edited for language or trimmed to stay on topic.
