    You quoted three virtually meaningless stats.... batting average homers and RBI's?

    Focus on his Walk Rate, K Rate, OBP, and Slugging.

    I figured I would start up this thread again exactly 1 year since someone posted in it and list MY top 15 prospects in our system now that we appear to be done trading for a little while. I rank mine based on minor league performance, proximity to the bigs, and potential in that order. Granted, since many of these prospects are new of course I will withhold judgement until they get some coaching in our system, but I figured I would take advantage of the excitement of a new influx of young guys.

    1. Jarred Cosart, SP AA: Ace-quality stuff with mixed results. I will be very curious to see how he does in CC.
    2. Brett Oberholtzer SP: Guy sounds like a pretty solid 3-starter with good numbers. Would be our Wandy of the future with a better fastball
    3. Jonathon Singleton, 1B AA: Really raw, but he has good power numbers for someone so young, I will be curious to see how he compares to my next prospect...
    4. Cody Heinz, 1B AA: Lot in common with Altuve the way he climbed the organization ladder. OPS of 1037.
    5. Paul Clemens: Not too sure what to think of this guy, he started well and has faded this year. But I think he projects to be a 4/5 kind of guy
    6. Dallas Keuchel, SP AA: A little like Lyles in terms of stuff and minor league results. He's been in CC too long but his ERA is right at 3.
    7. Telvin Nash, 1B A-: Really good power for a young guy, I hope he can make the switch to an outfield position.
    8. Tanner Bushue, SP A-: Having a good year in Lexington unlike a lot of other highly drafted peers
    9. Chris Wallace, C AA: Maybe the cater of the future 2.0? Offensively he is above average, but I'm not sure about his defense behind the plate.
    10. Jonathon Villar, SS AA: Great defensively with a lot of hype and potential but he is really struggling in the lead off spot for CC
    11. Jimmy Paredes, 2B/3B AA: Better at the plate than Villar, plays a solid 3B, and is our best chance is uproot Chris Johnson's terrible plate discipline and comical defense.
    12. JB Shuck, OF AAA: A guy I think should be called up soon with the departure of Bourn. He plays LF primarily but has played CF before. Could be a good fourth outfielder.
    13. Henry Sosa, SP AA: Has consistently put up good numbers in AA for us and the Giants, but really struggled in AAA. We'll see if he can find success in OKC.
    14. Juan Abreau, RP: Hardest thrower after Cosart? Has control issues, but those can be fixable.
    15. Adam Baily RF A-: Don't know a lot about him, but an OBP of .330 and most HRs in our entire orgaanization (16)

    Like the Wallace acknowledgment. I think he might be a diamond in the rough. People thought he was a bit of reach when drafted. One addition I might make would be Chase Davidson. We drafted him third a couple of years ago and he didn't sign. Drafted him extremely low last draft and he is absolutely raking.

    Saw this little gem of information...
    http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2011/0...medium=twitter

    The Astros hired an independent scout to watch their minor league affiliates and the scout found fewer than five players who should play in the Major Leagues.

    I like what our Minor system is looking like vs in years past. I have been following our minors more than the Astros this season. I have been able to see a few Hooks games this season. I have been impressed with Seaton's on the mound. I know he had some hype when we first signed him before he fell off. I think with a season at AAA next season he'll be ready to contribute to our rotation in another 2-3 years.

    Any news on Springer? I hope they wait the 10 games then call him up. You guys need a reason to watch the games and I'm not sure Carter is that reason. I understand waiting to call him up so he's under control though 2020 but damn, the organization needs to realize some of these prospects are going to be MLB ready and you can't wait for the timing to work out just perfectly. Eventually you have to let them play.

    Any news on Springer in 2014? What do you guys think will happen?

    I dont think he will ever come up. Maybe in like 2019. Hes the best player in our entire organization so Im hoping he is starting opening day, though I seriously doubt it. He isnt having a very good spring although he leads the team in walks and had a walk off hit. His defense has been impressive though.

    If the team waits 10 games they'll be able to control him an extra year. If they call him up on game 11 I think the players association might cause them a headache. I hope he starts the season hot and will be called up in May. He might be one of the few guys who can have a 25/25 season. Though, I see him more as a 20/40 type guy. A B.J. Upton of a few years ago type...

    He's the household name that will bring back fans under our new core of Astros. We need to handle this accordingly or he bails the first chance he has.
