I'd have to rank Kjerstad based on his SEC performance and that he seems to be getting passed his illness. He was hyped as the best left-handed power college bat in the 2020 draft. Everyone is being ranked on potential.
The only reason I bring up Kjerstad is the suggestion that Mayo may move to RF at some point.
Lol, Amazing that was the first leadoff homer in WS history. Soler power! Rosario will be the leadoff hitter against righties. As hot as he is, maybe he'll be the second player to lead off a WS game with a homer. Urquidy (a righty) is starting for Houston.
It's REALLY hard to rank Kjerstad almost anywhere, right? No matter where Tony puts him, there's real "risk" that Kjerstad either greatly overperforms or greatly underperforms.
Stowers is on the doorstep of the majors, has power and plays good defense. Risk is k rate. You can justify putting him very high, I'd wager.
It's a snapshot after a single season. No doubt Gunnar could be above Mayo next year just based on Gunnar's performance alone. That kid could be special. He did have an up and down season though, both at the plate and in the field.
If he's like some of the kids I know, the offseason can be used to really clean up the game. Not sure that applies as they get older, but there's nothing stopping Gunnar from being our #1 prospect next year. It might not be likely, but it's possible.
Little too aggressive for me. I have Cowser, Henderson and Hall ahead of Mayo. I will have to seen more of Mayo before I rank him that high. I am not real sure yet if he ranks ahead of Stowers and Kjerstad as a right fielder.
65, 65, 60. Awesome. Ceilings of 75, 75, 65.
Not sure where Cowser, Henderson and Hall will fall on future grades, but I know their ceilings will be high. That's a nice top of the list.
Really interested to see where a couple of the international guys fall too. Next year I'm expecting to see a name (or 2-4) really shoot up the lists like Mayo did this year, and I'm not just thinking about the #1 overall pick.
