A few other pitchers are coming up on my radar at this point.
MIchael Baird – made it to AA after being drafted in 2018. Has a career 2.00 minor league ERA, and sub .200 BAA. At 6’5″ he should be an imposing presence.
Ramon Santos- Should be at AA, and really increased his K rate. In fact he had 34 K’s in his last 19 innings.
MIchael Yasenka- Pitched very well at JC throwing 91-93 mph. Also pitched well at State College before being shut down.
Freddy Pacheco- Hard throwing reliever with around the best strikeout rate in the system, but also walked more than 1 per inning. If he can improve his control watch out. Did not give up a homer all season.
Leonardo Taveras- 6’5″ hard throwing righty pitched 4 levels before being shut down early due to Palm Beach’s game cancellations due to Hurricane Dorian. Same problem as Pacheco, control.October 5, 2019 at 7:54 pm #110324mudvilleParticipantPaid - Annual
39. Gingery – No information, so no love for this pitcher, I guess.
40. Mendoza – Nice defense.
41. Schrock – Seems like he should have better stats since he had them in Oakland.

39. Austin Warner – Servicable lefty who was league average this year in AA before getting moved up to AAA where he didn’t fare too well. Could be anything from a back of the rotation starter to a serviceable mutli-inning guy out of the pen.
40. Ludwin Jimenez – TCN’s GCL Starting Pitcher of the Year in his 17 year old season. Good bet to develop a little more on his FB to go along with his already good CU and CB. Continued development showed push him into the top 20 next year with a little luck.
41. Francisco Justo – Teamed with Hector Soto for a pretty formidable 1-2 punch in the JC rotation. I think Justo has a more projectable frame for a starter’s profile, even though Soto’s numbers were a little better in JC. It’ll be interesting to see where the Organization puts them next year.
42. Evan Kruzcynski – Another lefty (one of them has to turn out right?) with good control and good stuff. Didn’t put up the same numbers as last year, however still league average in AA and really got hit around in AAA. Looked like increase in walks and slight uptick in HRs really led to his decrease in numbers. If he can push his GB rate up to where he was last year, should be back on track, likely in AAA.October 8, 2019 at 9:27 am #110754desmetlax12ParticipantFree
Just wanted to bring this thread back to the top since there hasn’t been any activity for a bit now and I know we were all probably caught up in yesterday’s excitement!October 8, 2019 at 9:53 am #110761gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
For future reference it might be better to have this vote once the season is completed. I know it takes awhile but it is hard to focus on the prospects during a pennant race and the playoffs.

43. Schrock – Nice jump in BB rate from a career 6% to 12% this past year which helped with his improvement to a .366 OBP after a poor .296 his first time through AAA. Played this season at 24 so still at a good age for this level.
44. Nogowski – A little older (26) but a really nice slash line in Memphis at .295/.413/.476/.889 with more walks (69) than strikeouts (54), don’t really see that much anymore and his plate discipline has been great throughout his minor league career. Could be a nice off the bench option.
45. Machado – Good numbers in short season ball (.825 OPS) but struggled some moving up to Peoria with a .690 OPS. However at 20 he’s still a year younger than league average so still has time.
46. Brady Whalen – I like the big frame, hasn’t shown much yet and turns 22 in January so hopefully he’ll e able to move on to Palm Beach and start showing some production.October 8, 2019 at 7:23 pm #110808grenadier1ParticipantPaid - Three Months
43. Austin Warner – A good bet to start the year in the AAA rotation. Three good pitches with good control. I think we’re sleeping on this type of prospect because we’ve became used to it in the past few years. If he is able to consistently put it together this year, he could get a couple of spot starts in the bigs this year. His lack of prototypical size could push him to the bullpen, but has been effective as a starter.
44. Ludwin Jimenez – The best bet to break out in camp this year if he develops a little more velocity (as you would expect a 17 year old to do). Based on the organization’s handling of him, I could see them challenging him with an opening assignment in Peoria. 44 seems a little low for him based on projection so I think he’ll make it through this round.
45. Francisco Justo – Another candidate to be in Peoria’s rotation to start the year. One of my personal favorites from last years draft class. Obviously YaSenaka had the best numbers on the JC staff, but I think Justo has a more projectable starter profile with his size and stuff. There are a lot of interesting pitchers in the system after the last two drafts. Good to see after the last couple of years.
46. Lars Nootbaar – Nootbaar is a good segue into the differences between wRC+, OPS+ and DRC+. By wRC+ this year he looked good in Peoria and was league average in promotions to PB and Springfield (128/104/102 respectively). DRC+ vs OPS+ vs wRC+ By DRC+ however he shows as well above average at all three stops (128/124/135). So he “Deserved” better stats at his more advance stops. DRC+ is supposed to be somewhat predictive of a players future. Overall, Nootbaar is a big, athletic OF who should develop a little more power, which combined with his good BB% and SO numbers this year could develop into a pretty advanced hitter. He should begin at AA this year and with some progression, I could see him making a big rise as soon as the mid-season rankings.

45. Kramer Robertson. Good on base skills, will see if he can stick at SS.
46. Francisco Justo. I like his story and think he will make an impact sooner or later. Maybe as a reliever, but he’ll be top 20 at some point.
