  1. Ok can honestly say this is the first player on the list I have never heard of. If anyone has any info on Lewis Alezones I’d appreciate it.

  2. If Kilome is 18 then Alezones should have been 4-5 spots ahead of him. Stats wise Lewis is the better pitcher at the same age and level.

    Kilome ranked at 18 was criminal in my opinion.

    1. DMAR… did you expect anything different?
      …BA has him at 13 and Fangraphs have him at 14.
      And they are the two most respective pubs that the bloggers read.

      1. And DMARs…I forgot the most respected of all authors/pubs….the ‘BradinDC List’ over at CA, has him at 13. Need we say anymore! 😉

    2. And stuff wise Kilome is light years ahead of Alezones. Alezones has decent secondaries and a fastball that is 88-90 touching 91. Kilome might have the highest upside of any pitcher in the system right now, Kilome might never get to Severino Gonzalez’s level of stuff

  3. I do not understand Walding ahead of Lino. Lino is 8 months younger, played at 1 level higher, is a slightly better hitter, at the most valuable defensive position. This year when they are both at Clearwater, we can see head-to-head on who is the better hitter. My money is on Lino.

  4. It is weird that Neifi Ogando is #31 and Seth Rosin is not even on the ballot. They are both 26 year old relief pitchers. Ogando has never pitched above AA. Rosin pitched in both AAA and MLB. Ogando has just 12 saves in 139 minor league relief appearances, while Rosin has 15 saves in 117 minor league appearances. He has 1 win (against the Phillies) in his 3 major league appearances.

    I think 20-year-old starting pitcher Tyler Viza is a better prospect than both Ogando and Rosin, and a better prospect than several other pitchers already on the top 48.

      1. A step forward? Nefi’s 6.27 ERA and 4.53 FIP were both career worsts. And they were as a 25-year-old in AA. Seth posted his best ERA since 2011 while spending half his season above AA.

  5. This is what’s wrong with this organization. Readers think a guy that threw 14 innings in short season with a 7 plus ERA, almost 3 whip 19hits, 20 walks to only 6 K’s is our # 39 prospect. Just how does that equate into anything but please release me now.

    1. If you can’t even conceive of how a player with poor stats in the minors might be ranked ahead of someone with good stats, I don’t think there’s much hope for anyone convincing you of much of anything around here. Scouting is not hocus pocus. The people who watch players for a living aren’t just BSing all of us. Stats are useful, but they are such a small part of the story at lower levels of the minor leagues.
