About a month ago, I sat down and mapped out the Tuesday article drop schedule for the rest of the season.
That sounds like a lot. However, between the draft, trade deadline, having six levels to cover in the farm system, and wanting to spend two weeks per season on each team, there weren’t many weeks without content.
My focus was to take an initial pass through the system in May, dissecting what is happening at each level, with features on who I feel are the top position player and pitching prospects. Part two of this will come in August, when I take a lot at how everything has progressed this year, with an emphasis on the how.
That season progression starts to get more important in the A-ball levels and below.
This week, we’re covering the Greensboro Grasshoppers. This is a team that just promoted Henry Davis and Matt Gorski, but still has two of the top ten prospects in the system remaining. The Pirates also have some players who are very young for the level. It’s difficult to evaluate those players with accuracy this early in the process.
The articles this week took a look at the hitting from Endy Rodriguez, the familiar path of Jared Jones, what was working for Matt Gorski, and a few other features. We’ll have more Greensboro coverage as the week goes on. For now, check out the links below.
