Busy times here at the site, but now with the draft over and on the back burner until mid August, I thought it would be good to look at my top 30 list and see how my rankings look, and also how my view of players may have been altered since I prepared the rankings in mid-December. This is a quick snapshot, and just my brief thoughts in passing, it is not a re-ranking of my top 30 or anything substantial like that. I’m going to simply categorize all 30 guys as follows:
stock up – the prospect has shown improvements that make me think I will be upgrading his standing after the season
stock down – the inverse of above
no change – nothing to change my opinion of the player
Do not try and infer a new top 10 or top 20 or top 30 from my comments. Again, these are brief snippets and takes on our guys right now. When I put together my top 30 this winter, it will require a lot more in depth review. This is just a quick update.
Quick note: I had started writing this last week, but then waited to publish, and forgot to do it, so some of the stats may be outdated. I’m sorry!

A few guys not on the 30:
Zach Collier, OF – Stock up. Very impressive so far, I’ve raved about him on twitter a number of times. Probable top 10-15 guy at this point.
Freddy Galvis, SS – Stock up. I have no clue where this power came from. Definitely back on the radar.
Cody Overbeck, 3B/1B/OF – Stock up. He’s probably in the 21-30 range right now, power is an asset, his defense/overall approach probably isn’t.
