Baseball America’s Top 150 Prospect Lists
Baseball America released their 2011 top 100 prospects a week ago, with three Pittsburgh Pirates prospects making the list. Those players were Jameson Taillon, Tony Sanchez, and Stetson Allie. Today, in the Ask BA segment, Jim Callis answered a question about the individual top 150 prospect lists which make up the overall top 100. Callis didn’t release the individual lists, but he did list all of the prospects who were listed in a top 150 list, but who weren’t listed in the overall top 100. Three Pirates prospects, outside of Taillon, Sanchez, and Allie, made a few top 150 lists:
-Luis Heredia only made it on one of the six lists, and was rated 125th on the list he was ranked on.
-Starling Marte made it on five of the six lists, with his highest rating being 102nd. There were 32 players who were either on 5 or 6 lists, so it sounds like Marte would have been a good candidate for a combined top 125 if Baseball America did such a list.
-Bryan Morris ended up on two of the lists, with his highest rating being 131st.
