Keith Law posted his top 100 prospects on Thursday and the list had five players from the Pittsburgh Pirates. On Saturday, he listed ten players that just missed his top 100 and Nick Kingham made that group. Law believes that Kingham will be in the Majors soon and stay around for a long time as an “undervalued fourth starter type”. We profiled Kingham on Friday, naming him the sixth best prospect in the Pirates system. On Friday’s top 100 prospect show, MLB.com ranked Kingham 74th overall and also had him as the sixth best prospect in the system.
Speaking of the MLB.com top 100, Jim Callis rated the tools of all the prospects on the list. Tyler Glasnow got an honorable mention for the best fastball. Back in November, Glasnow was credited with the best curve in the Arizona Fall League by Jonathan Mayo, who worked with Jim Callis on the top 100 prospects list for MLB.com. Both of Glasnow’s pitches have been called “plus-plus” by scouts this off-season.
