Prospect Ranking Links: Jin-De Jhang, Tyler Waldron

Over the last two weeks, every outlet has been releasing their top prospect lists for each individual team, as well as the top 100 prospects in the league. A few outlets have been releasing additional reports or rankings, beyond their usual top 20 or 30. Here are links to two of those additional reports.

**Baseball America released their 32nd team, which gives one player from each organization, not included in their Prospect Handbook. Tyler Waldron was the extra player for the Pirates. The report noted that he’ll be moving to the bullpen in 2013, and could move quickly if he starts locating his pitches better. Waldron has four pitches, but none of them profile as plus pitches. In the Prospect Guide I wrote that his curve was the best off-speed pitch, and could pair nicely with his fastball in relief.

**Earlier today, MLB.com released their top 20 prospects for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Jonathan Mayo has released the 21st prospect for each team in the NL Central, and has Jin-De Jhang for the Pirates.
