  1. Could we get a link to the first couple of teams’ top 10 prospects at the beginning or end of the article?

  3. I played against Alvarez back when he was playing for the Bayside Yankees and he was the filthiest defender at 3b I had ever seen. I take it that filling out has eroded most of that skill for him.

  4. Does “filthiest” mean best defender? or worst defender? judging by the context I’m taking it that it means best

  5. I saw Alvarez quite a few times during the year. Although his error total was very high this year (25), in all of the games I saw him he seemed like a pretty solid defender, but didn’t have much range. He’s got a cannon for an arm and he seemed fine at picking up the balls he got to. Even made a few above average plays on hard balls at him. It seemed like he’d be a decent enough defender to leave there for a little while. Maybe an Aramis Ramirez type. Could just be the games I saw, though.

  6. I’d put Tony Sanchez over Hernandez and Miller already.

  7. One thing to remember about Gorkys: Looks like he’ll be a very good defender. According to total zone, he has saved 57 runs in his MILB career in nearly 1500 chances, for a TZ/150 of 23.6. Regressing 50% still gives a +12 CFer

  8. Jeff Locke is definitely underrated in the Pirates system. He profiles very similar to Paul Maholm.

  9. Von Rosenberg is the #1 Prospect Pirates have. You will see!
