Around this time of year we see a lot of prospect lists come out, and almost all of them focus on a player’s potential impact in the future, rather than the upcoming season. Keith Law takes a different approach each year, providing a list of the top 20 impact prospects for the 2013 season. The list is a ranking of players based only on their expected impact in the majors in 2013.

Law released his list yesterday, and Gerrit Cole was one of the 20 players. Many expect Cole to arrive in Pittsburgh this season, and Law had him sixth overall in the rankings. He notes that Cole could provide an impact for the Pirates in the second half.

Surrounding Cole were fellow 2011 top draft picks Trevor Bauer (5) and Dylan Bundy (7).

  1. Great list by Law. I was surprised to see Julio Tehran as high as he was (I believe he was third). Although he will be in the big leagues again at some point, perhaps immediately, he seemed to have a lot to work on. THe potential is there, though.

    On another note, The prospects of a 2nd half rotation potentially including Burnett, Rodriguez, McDonald, and Morton/Cole/Liriano to fill the last 2, is nothing short of exciting.
