Kjerstad comes in at #99 on BA Top 100

Recommended Posts

Seems about right, order-wise. How many slots did he slide down for the standard oriole penalty?

Within 1-2 years, I believe Kjerstad will be a top 20 prospect. In a normal year, where he would have opened at Aberdeen and likely would have finished at Delmarva, he would have been considerably higher by the Fall list. But this seems fair for their way of ranking players for the moment, based on what they wrote about him pre-draft.

Not the people who have the Baltimore inferiority complex.  You know, being wedged between DC, Philly and NYC tends to leave a rather large chip on people's shoulders.

Eh, no chips here amigo.

Anyway, Kjerstad fits at 99 from what I can tell.  Not sure how anyone could justify him being ranked significantly higher.

Is it hard typing when you're hanging from a cross?  I'm assuming so.

It’s pretty easy to justify it.  There really is very little that separates #40 and #100.

Fabgraphs had him ranked higher than most..I bet you they have him way higher in their top 100...other sites may as well.

These guys are all viewed differently in the eyes of different people.

Alright, where would you rank him if there's very little that separates 40 and 100?  I agree with you, fwiw.  But if it's easy to justify a higher ranking based on little that separates those numbers...then it's also easy to justify where he is, too.

Probably using voice recognition software.

If very little separates 40 and 100 than moving him up to 40 wouldn't constitute him being significantly higher.

    • Tony thought the same for Little Yaz, 4th OFer at best, if that. This is not a knock on Tony. But, its hard to really tell how these guys will mature and develope.  
    • I need to do some research to make my choice, so I went to the MLB prospect list, and man, they don’t agree with this list at all. No help there!
    • The signing bonuses (even if inflated for HS prospects) of Mayo/Baumler suggest to me they are second/third round talents and so would be appropriate here IMO.   
    • Hmmm so our #13 Prospect projects to nothing more than a utility guy? and presumably everyone behind him has as much or less potential?
    • I will plant the Adam Hall flag here - probably on my own island - well as a comp to Vavra - not necessarily at 13. Both Hall and Vavra played in the South Atlantic League last year.  Vavra had extreme home away splits and by extreme I mean Home 400/484/640/1124 and AWAY 224/320/316/636. Hall's overall numbers trail Vavra due to that extreme split, but in (IMO) the most legitimate comp between the two - Hall outhit Vavra on the road with a respectable 291/360/369/729.  League average numbers for the South Atlantic League last year were 239/316/362/677 which Vavra's road numbers trail.  Vavra's road numbers also trailed those of the promoted 2019 draft picks Johnny Rizer and Toby Welk in the Sally League in 2019 - prospects I don't think we will see anywhere near here. As Tony mentioned, included in Vavra's numbers are superior BB/K numbers which were 62/62 in 2019 with similar home/away splits.  Hall did walk in about 9% of his PAs, but struck out much more often in 117 times - nearly a quarter of his PAs. I believe Hall has a better middle infield defensive profile with a chance, albeit a low one, to stick at SS but capable of playing a competent major league 2B IMO.   A final important factor to me is that Hall is two years younger than Vavra and played about one year younger than the Sally League average in 2019 while Vavra was a year older than league average. Tony has the inside word here and the Os had to like something in Vavra to take him in trade so I will prepare in advance to eat future crow when I say I prefer Hall to Vavra.
