Hangouters 2013 Top-30 prospect lists


Tony-OH

Recommended Posts

Well, we're almost ready to start putting out our top 30 prospect list. The order is done, but now we need to start the write ups. We hope to start the countdown from ten to one on Monday, November 4th.

So here's your chance to give out your top 30 list and see how it compares to our list. As always, we won't comment too much on the list so not to give away our order, but we may give out some clues here and there.

BTW, Gausman is still eligible for the list as he did not exhaust his rookie status according to the Orioles.

1- Dylan Bundy

2- Kevin Gausman

3- Hunter Harvey

4- Eduardo Rodriguez

5- Jonathan Schoop

6- Michael Ohlman

7- Mike Wright

8- Zach Davies

9- Chance Sisco

10- Dariel Alvarez

Thats all I am going to do right now because the rest is so interchangeable, however, while not being a highly regarded system in regards to the national media, I really do like our top 10. IMO Rodriguez has slightly separated himself from Schoop as the better prospect due to a combination of age/projection and "now" stuff or skill. Almost inclined to put Ohlman ahead of Schoop although I am sure most outlets will disagree. As has been the issue over the last few years, we lack depth, but we have quite a few high ceiling prospects, especially arms.

This is one of those catch-22 things. Really cool to see the prospects and what we have in the system.

But, when we go back and revisited them, like the 2008 list, then it's kinda of depressing to see how so few turned out.

Hopefully, with a better plan in place now, in 2018, we can go back five years and see several names on this list on the parent club and producing.

Hindsight is of course always 20/20, but that system from 08 if I recall was pretty highly regarded, but one of the glaring differences between now and then is that we currently have 3 pitchers with true #1 potential in our top 5. I don't think you could have said that back in 08.

You can do that with just about any list for just about any team. It's just the nature of the business. Most of these guys will not make it.

My 10, though I'm guessing Tony will target a higher upside guy for #10.

1. Bundy

2. Gausman

3. Harvey

4. Rodriguez

5. Schoop

6. Ohlman

7. Sisco

8. Wright

9. Urrutia

10. Walker

I'm guessing most will have Wright at 6 or 7. If he sticks as a #4-ish starter, that makes sense. As a good bullpen arm, he gets a slight ding from me. I could have made a place for Hart or Marin, but I think they're 11-15 guys, for me at least...plus I still like Walker's bat.

Harvey behind EdRod because of proximity to the Major's? Or do you think EdRod has a higher ceiling? Just curious.

Proximity mostly. I don't know that Harvey's ceiling is much higher, if higher at all, than EdRod. I may value likelihood over ceiling more than most people.

Great thread, Tony, I wait for this each year with great anticipation. Well, this year I've gotten even more into it. I have now visited each minor league affiliate with the exception of the two DSL teams. I've seen almost every player on my list in person and have combined this with the statistical approach I use. In my opinion, we have quite a few interesting pitchers and very few hitters. Here's my list:

1. Gausman

2. D. Bundy

3. E. Rodriguez

4. Schoop

5. Harvey

6. Wright

7. Davies

8. Ohlman

9. Sisco

10. Urrutia

11. Walker

12. Wilson

13. Rennie

14. Vader

15. D. Jones

16. Marin

17. Stinson

18. Kline

19. Drake

20. Horacek

21. Parry

22. Mancini

23. Tarpley

24. B. Bundy

25. Alvarez

26. Bridwell

27. Alvarado

28. Moreno

29. Brault

30. Floranus

Just missed: J. Hart, G. Davis, Howard, Bierfeldt, Berry

Thanks. Well, like oldorioles said we are pitching heavy, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. Really enjoy getting everyone's take on our top 30.

Ceiling for Harvey is a true #1, I think EdRod is more of a mid rotation starter. Harvey has the better FB with more in the tank at a much younger age. From my understanding, Harvey has the better (main)secondary offering with the chance to improve it. I don't think there is much of an argument to be made as far as their ceilings even being remotely close, but the argument would be floor, track record, and proximity to the majors being weighted heavier on a prospect list.

    • This is a secondary or more accurately a thirdly or even a fourthly move.  Something he does all of the time.  It means next to nothing.  Elias loves to do this kind of thing.  And overall......it doesn't matter!   He may hit 1 out of 11 or even 2 out of 20 of these things....which is fine!  It is all reward and no risk.  So whatever.    At the very least it provides depth in the minor leagues.  Will it make or break the Os?  Hell no. If you can't tell the difference between me talking about Elias's fascination with other teams high velocity/high spin castoffs who can't stay on the major league club, and real actual major league moves?  Then you haven't been paying attention. I could give you 5 examples just in the past year.  Just another example of people like you COMPLETELY lying about a post I make.  And don't worry......you aren't alone.  Lots of people do it on here.  Again.....it doesn't matter.  This move.  Doesn't matter.   But if you want to call me a troll for you thinking I THINK that these types of moves somehow invalidate what Elias has done here overall for the past 5 years?   Then you be you.    But it isn't true. 
    • At what cost? You weren't getting Cease for DL Hall and Ortiz or it would have happened. Would you have been fine trading away Westburg or Cowser+ for him? At least he's having an up year from 2023. 2023 2024  
    • For me, it’s not about Moore’s tournament performance as much as his apparent ability to square the ball up and use the entire field. Legit power and hit tool. 
    • Right, which is why the Tigers kicked in 18M.
    • Norby was cleaner at 2B, but Moore has better athleticism. Moore would need a lot of work to stay on the dirt. I would think they want to move him quickly, whichever team takes him. 
    • 3. There was a lot of second guessing of the Verlander trade at the time.  Verlander was seen by many as a pitcher who's best days where behind him. 
    • Just a friendly FYI: If you click on the Tweet itself to open it, and then "copy" the web address of that Tweet, you can then "paste' the Tweet here and it'll imbed properly and the Tweet itself will appear within your post here (versus being a clickable link in your post).   The "copy link" feature of Twitter doesn't always work on message boards any more.
