Jameson Taillon on Project Prospect’s Top 25

Taillon was named the #10 prospect in baseball by Project Prospect.

Project Prospect, a great independent prospect evaluation outlet, released their top 25 prospects for the 2011 season yesterday, and listed Jameson Taillon as the number 10 overall prospect.  Taillon was the only Pirates prospect to make the list, but ended up grading well, especially in their “overall future performance” category.  The “66” rating for Taillon was the second best on the list, falling only behind Bryce Harper’s “72”, and ending up one spot ahead of Aroldis Chapman’s “65” rating.  Prospects 1-9 were position players, which means that Taillon is the top pitching prospect in baseball according to Project Prospect.

    Just for fun. If Rendon were already drafted, by the Bucs or anyone, where would he rank on this list? Top 10? Top 5?

      Assuming he is 100% recovered from injury, it would not shock me to see him #1 as Jim Callis has said several times if he were available in the 2010 draft he would have gone ahead of Bryce Harper. I think 2011 could be the year the Pirates are finally fortunate to have the top pick (i.e., there could be a clear cut, future superstar available).
