    My picks:

    70. Diego Cordero. Hope we get to see him this year; it should be interesting to see who takes a step forward.

    71. Jose Davilas. Should start in the GCL, and he was throwing 91 as a 16 year old. He’s my sleeper pick to break out next year and be on the rise from this group.

    72. Jake Walsh.

    73. Austin Warner. A small lefty who made his way to Memphis already, he will have to show he’s mastered it before he’d get the call to St Louis. A long shot, but would be a fun story.

    74. Terry Fuller. Admittedly just a bet on a big power bat here, he sort of disappeared after drafted. He will need to show he’s got anything left this year but if it clicks, there’s lots of potential.

    75. Joerlin De Los Santos. A big 2018 (.959 OPS) led to a not good at all 2019 (.432 OPS). The truth may lie somewhere in the middle. He’s a player who will probably be in the GCL in 2021, but would really have benefitted from having the Johnson City-State College route as an option at 20 years old.

    Ok, so the snow has frozen my brain I guess. My #75 has already been accounted for, so my new #75 is Scott Hurst.

    Great job everyone, with special thanks to stlcard25 for keeping the trains running on time. Also to bccran for taking the first leap into the water.

    In the next day or two, I will move this thread to the pinned area at the top of the board. The 2020 thread will be unpinned at the same time – but the link to it has been added to the first post of this thread for easy future access.

    I appreciate their efforts also. The prospect ranking is always great fun and it got me to revisit the info and data from ’19… especially for the guys that sat out for the whole season.

    Nice going Stl-25 and bccran.

    Thank you for 25 and Bcran for running this annual prospect voting. I really look forward to it every year. Good to see other posters thoughts, and going to 75 prospects makes a person work a little harder trying to dig up diamonds in the rough. And the 2020 ratings were particularly difficult with very little live action. Cheers to a 2021 full of baseball going back to as close to normal as possible.

    Thanks 25 Great Job. Enjoyed the ride! I think there some outfield sleepers down in the list. Let’s hope so.

    The curse of The Wizard lives on! There are only 2.5 middle infielders in the top 40 with Edmundo Sosa (#18)and Mateo Gil (#20) being the 2, and Mason Winn (#9) being the .5.

    Good eye there, mud. Although there’s a shot that Perez and/or Rivas could move up with solid 2021 seasons. 2B is even thinner than SS, with no real hopes that any of them will be big league starting caliber. A backup may be the best we can do.

    I sure hope Rivas turns out to be something that generates some excitement. It would be miraculous if Delvin Perez could turn it around, but short of a miracle, there’s not really a reason to expect it. John ‘We’re not the morality police’ Mozeliak should never have drafted this kid after it was determined that he was using steroids to supercharge his performance.

    Some serious 20-20 hindsight there on Delvin being drafted. Most people I recall were delighted a player of his reported talent level dropped to the Cardinals.

    Unfortunately, that was long enough ago, it was on our old message board, so the record no longer exists of what you all said at the time.

    The first year, 2017, Perez was ranked the overall #3 prospect in the system. (The community vote was no. 4.)

    Here is what this community said in 2018, after his first rough year.

    Message board community (20): After finishing at #4 last year, Delvin Perez checked in at #20 during the community vote, which is quite the hit in prospect status for the former first rounder. Desmetlax12 and I put him much higher during the vote, picking him with our seventh picks in the vote, which was higher than anyone else.

    Bccran said that Perez is a human string bean who has a ton of filling out to do. He went even further saying that he would put both Tommy Edman and Kramer Robertson ahead of Perez on a prospect list. Mudville said that he sure hopes Perez can rebound next year. Responding to that, I said that I voted for Perez so high still as I believe he has the most potential of our position players even if it didn’t show during the season. Brianpnoonan said that he just hopes Perez has his head in the right place because he isn’t showing anything yet. It is a far cry from last year when hoyaheel thought that scouting director Randy Flores saw Perez as having Francisco Lindor/Carlos Correa upside. – Jeremy Byrd

    Perez really just has this coming year to sink or swim as far as his status with the Cards is concerned. Hopefully he used his 2020 wisely and added some good weight. His glove has enough potential to carry him to the majors if he can hit with any authority at all. I’d like to see Delvin hit a few homers with more doubles and triples next year. He did finish his 2019 stronger, and will need to keep that up at Palm Beach or Peoria.

    I went the opposite way of the 20/20 hind-sighters. I didn’t like the pick because of the then already tilt towards immaturity. I considered that selection a long-shot stab. Perez has now shown some signs of what his talent can do for his future.

    If he can put together a 2021 that shows something close to his potential, he’ll continue on in this organization and the Cardinals are the one team he’ll have the best opportunity since we have a history of giving #1 picks the benefit of the doubt. Plus we need middle infielders throughout the system.

    I was the first of the community’s voters to select him in the 35-39 round. I think that he has plenty of room to show improvement has a lot of motivation because he must know that without being a baseball talent he will be just another guy looking to make a living elsewhere. Let’s see what he looks like coming out of 2020.
