Future Shock: Midwest League All-Stars


Kevin Goldstein

Kevin took in the Midwest League All-Star Game, and offers some news and notes on some of the game's top prospects.

The Midwest League All-Star Game took place on Tuesday night in Geneva, Illinois, home of the Kane County Cougars. In addition to talking to a number of players before the game, I was able to watch the game from some of the best seats in the house, surrounded by team officials and the guys with the radar guns. Here's a not-so-quick review of the game, complete with a few thoughts on a number of prospects. These are just notes that were taken in chronological order.

Lies, Damned Lies: PECOTA Takes on Corner Outfield Prospects


Nate Silver

Last time out, Nate zeroed in on center fielders. Today, he moves to the corners.

1. Delmon Young, Devil Rays (21) 135.2 2. Billy Butler, Royals (21) 125.9 3. Jay Bruce, Reds (20) 118.1 Delmon Young is the best corner outfield prospect in baseball. There isn't much debate about that. The question is where he fits into the overall picture. Kevin Goldstein and Baseball America each have him rated at #3, whereas PECOTA thinks he's more in the range of #15.

In the last of his organizational top tens (your applause is noted), Kevin identifies two intriguing outfield prospects, a serviceable catcher and some useful arms.

1. Travis Snider, RF
2. Adam Lind, LF
