    12. Alex Reyes
    50. Carson Kelly
    56. Jack Flaherty
    64. Luke Weaver

    Interesting how different they are from the BP one:
    9. Reyes
    36. Kelly
    39. Alcantara
    46. Sierra

    I think they are definitely missing the boat on Sierra and Bader. They are top 100 guys.

    I think Dakota Hudson should be #56b right there with Flaherty. Those two are the future.

    For reference, Delvin Perez was on the Baseball America list in the offseason just six months ago at #86

    He was #79 on the BP list and #91 on the MLB list.

    Now it seems like they are punishing him for not playing until short-season ball. That’s standard for a typical HS draft pick.

    So you have 6 different names making these 2 lists with 3 other guys: Hudson, Bader, and Perez who probably can and will show up in other lists. 9 guys with top 100 consideration is a deep group.

    Not standard for a first rounder or a top 100 prospect.

    Nice couple nuggets from BA on Sierra and Flaherty in today’s Top 100 chat:

    John Manuel: We definitely talked Magneuris Sierra in our top 100 meeting. I think the question again was the impact; how much power is this guy going to have? He might wind up being a guy we were light on, because he can really run, can really defend and is showing bat-to-ball skills. He’s the kind of athlete that the game is trending toward, all-around guys. I hope that trend continues.

    J.J. Cooper on Flaherty: His stuff has gotten a lot better. In the past, scouts have been concerned about the quality of his fastball, but he’s gotten stronger and has steadily added velocity, which has made everything play up. He’s a good mid-rotation starting prospect.His stuff keeps getting better. What was once a below-average fastball is now at least average to above-average.

    Baseball America is announcing its season all-star teams by level. Surprisingly, no Cardinals at Triple-A, Double-A or high-A. I didn’t see links to the others yet.

    C Ivan Herrera is the Cardinals’ lone rep on BA’s DSL All-Star Team.

    I saw this elsewhere and wanted to share:

    Here’s where the Cardinals have ranked in WAR from rookie players since 2010:

    2010: 10th
    2011: 11th
    2012: 4th
    2013: 2nd
    2014: 21st
    2015: 10th
    2016: 3rd
    2017: 3rd

    Ranking for the full run (2010-2017): 1st

    Re : baseball america

    I stopped taking the league by league ones seriously when memphis couldnt get anyone in a league they dominated with a very young team.

    Ba just refuses to rate cardinals well and pretty much has for years

    I couldn’t find BA’s criteria. At times it appeared they took the guy with the best stats but there were times that they clearly didn’t.

    Several Cards prospects split time between leagues thus probably not qualifying for consideration in either league. (Helsley, Flaherty, and O’Reilly specifically come to mind).

    BA posted each team’s top 10 draft bonuses paid over time. Not only do the Cards have the lowest top bonus, their highest ones were years ago. A lot of misses among this group. An interesting comparison piece.
