Nick Kingham and Alex Dickerson are Top NYPL Prospects
Baseball America has released their top 20 prospects for the New York-Penn League today, with two Pirates Prospects making the list. Nick Kingham and Alex Dickerson were both named to the top 20 list, with scouting reports found here for subscribers.
Kingham ranked 9th, after putting up a 2.15 ERA in 71 innings, along with a 47:15 K/BB ratio. Kingham was the third highest pitcher rated in the league. 2011 third round pick Alex Dickerson came in at 11th, after hitting for a .313/.393/.493 line in 150 at-bats.
The one notable omission was Stetson Allie, although it’s possible that he didn’t have enough innings to qualify for the list. Two players who missed the list while putting up strong numbers were pitcher Ryan Hafner and outfielder Wes Freeman.
