  1. I really like the second list w/ the grades/risk/rank. This is really good work. Thanks.

  4. interesting thing I noticed-
    5 of the 7 players with grades of 60+ below 100 were Rangers

  5. Lance McCullers is an interesting one. Grade of 67.5 but avg of 86.3 and Rank of 90. How does he get to 67.5? Hes the only one with that grade ranked lower than 35th.

  6. He’s got a lot of risk with that arm. He’s new to pitching, and people have questioned the mechanics leading to good enough command along with a concern about missing a change-up in his arsenal. Those are valid concerns, though I think they’re caused by him being new to pitching and can be worked with. But he’s definitely a project.

  7. I think I mentioned this somewhat in the AL West write-up. The Rangers are a very boom-or-bust system after the top three of Profar, Olt, and Martin Perez.

  8. Does anybody have any answers to me as to how Baseball America evaluates prospects differently than others? Specifically, Aaron Sanchez has an aggregate ranking of the other 6 scouting resources used of 29, while Baseball America has him at 65.It just seemed to be quite an outlier, and considering KLaw and others have had considerable praise for Sanchez, I’m curious if anyone has an answer to my question as to why BA ranked Sanchez behind the likes of Slade Heathcott, Lance McCullers, and Kaleb Cowart.

    Thanks for listening.
