71. Jean Selmo – Doesn’t seem to have caught on with the voters here. He compares very well with Carlos Soler, Joerlin De Los Santos, and Adanson Cruz in my opinion. Could get interesting as he is Rule 5 eligible.
72. Wadye Ynfante – Another Rule 5 eligible guy who has talent, but hasn’t even conquered full season ball yet. Down year for the former top prospect, but can restore some of that value with a hot start.
73. Brady Whalen – Big guy with big talent that I think will start to put it together this year. Low average and SLG, but good OBP. 14% walk rate and 20% strikeout in State College speaks to good approach at the plate. Turns 21 this year with a lot of room to grow. I think power and average will come sooner rather than later and we could see him as a breakout guy as early as this year.
74. Jacob Patterson – Lefty reliever with good strike out to walk numbers and a pretty good FIP for PB this year. Thought to be a quick to the majors reliever, who should be in the upper minors this year. Might get a shot as early as this year if his stuff plays and injuries necessitate.
75. Mike O’Reilly – Had remarkable numbers over the past two years prior to a rough year in 2018. Doesn’t have overpowering stuff, so it’ll be interesting to see if he is still able to get outs consistently above A ball. All in all, could be a useful piece down the road.November 8, 2018 at 7:33 pm #74274Bob CobbParticipantPaid - Annual

Misses bats. Age is a concern.
#73 – Stefan Trosclair, 1b-2b
Multi-position player with power and some speed. He bears watching.
#74 – Ian Oxnevad lhp
A lefthanded starter who’s still only 22 yo and ready for Springfield next year deserves to be in the top 75, possibly higher. At the least, he is a future candidate for a major league bullpen job.
#75 – Bryan Dobzanski, rhp
Effective reliever in A ball. Ready for Springfield.

73. Andrew Morales – He’ll make his major league debut in 2019, so he must be a prospect.
74. Irving Lopez – I had at least 7 infielders ahead of Nick Dunn, starting with Irving, which shows how varied our opinions are. CC named 3 more. Was Lopez or Edwin Figuera at 69 and I really and truly believe Edwin doesn’t get the love he deserves.
75. Wadye Ynfante – How did he go from top prospect to a nobody from one bad season when Delvin Perez seems to get a free pass for being a steroid user and bust? Can Wadye not hit a breaking pitch or something. Someone please enlighten me on why we’ve all given up on him??? I’m as guilty as anyone.November 9, 2018 at 1:34 am #74286Bob ReedParticipantFree
Speaking just for myself, Wiley, my opinion of Wadye’s potential plummeted this year due in large part to the 35% strikeout rate. It’s just prohibitive for a guy who (1)isn’t even in full season ball yet, (2)isn’t young for his league, and (3)doesn’t hit for much power.

Was just 16 in the DSL and posted the 7th-best wRC+ for his age, at 121. Neither small nor large for a second baseman at 5′ 11″, DeJesus fanned too much but did draw plenty of walks, and also displayed at least a little gap power in his 120 trips to the plate. He’s someone to watch going forward. Or he’s a kid in the Dominican Summer League and nobody should give a darn, and I just like him because his birthday is the anniversary of Lou Brock breaking the stolen base record. And my sister’s birthday. I don’t know.November 9, 2018 at 3:02 am #74287BlackHillsCardParticipantFree

74. Brady Whalen. I actually forgot about him. Despite a low .209 batting average, he put up a 111 wRC+ at State College. He came in as a SS/3B prospect but only played 1st this year. That lowers his value somewhat. If he can make more contact, he could take a jump forward.
75. Connor Coward. Maybe a case of an advanced college arm dominating the GCL but I’ve gotta give him props for having a 0.88 ERA in 41 innings this year. What he does next year will tell the story more.November 9, 2018 at 11:48 pm #74340SoonerinNCParticipantPaid - Annual

Nyquist17 – Rethinking the concept of our previous discussion. Voting for top pitcher, player and so on is redundant to what Brian is doing, so maybe let’s stick with what he doesn’t cover.
1. Top Surprise player; which player unexpectedly progressed up the system
2. Largest Development player; which player honed his skills the most
3. Breakout player; which player do you think will breakout in 2019
4. Top prospect acquisition; trades + Rule 5 draft + free agent signings for the 2018 season
5. Most under-rated prospect; who should get more love. (Bw52 Award for being the only one to give Lane Thomas any love last year.)
List top 5 in eachNovember 16, 2018 at 9:07 pm #74410BlackHillsCardParticipantFree
Welp this completely sucks (no fault of Brian’s of course) as I didn’t bother to save my 76-100 list anywhere. I’ll try to get it posted tomorrow if time allows.
