I think he'll emerge as a quality starter in due time. The Yankees seem to like him - pushing him up to AA just for the challenge of it all this year. Some team is going to make a trade with them, he'll be in the package, and they'll be happy about it in 2014 or 2015.
    The only times hes hit is in his second leg of A ball. I'll take your word for it though as a sleeper.

    LOL! Are you kidding me? My favorite team's pitching prospect is in Rookie-Ball. His floor is Mark Buehrle. He is on the top 100 list!!!!!


    Seriously though, Trayce Thompson could be one to watch. Very athletic, serious power and may stick at CF. Contact issues but has produced at every level and is still plenty young enough to fix his strikeout issues.

    Oh the other Yankee sleeper is Angelo Gumbs.

    Sox sleepers: Vinicio and now Jacobs who has fallen after an injury plague season (played through hamate bone injury which always goes bad).

    Gumbs i like the tools. Could become a good trade piece.

    The Mets have quite a lot of depth of pitching talent at their lower levels (as in regards to possible sleepers at some point)

    Guys like Rainy Lara, Luis Mateo, Gabriel Ynoa, Logan Verrett, Rafael Montero, Tyler Pill, Michael Fulmer, Domingo Tapia, (Darin Gorski and Jacob Degrom who are older and Cory Mazzoni who regressed last year)

    It should be nice to see how they develop further.

    I really like Tapia, Montero, Mateo, and Fulmer quite a bit.

    Matz, the 1st round pick nobody knew, is more interesting than you would think considering the non-reaction that pick got. Still only 21 and picked up K's. He needs to get healthy and get innings. I could see him turning into a Paul Maholm BOR type lefty in a few years if things break right for him.

    Fulmer was a good pick for them this year.

    Sickels did the Cubs top 20:

    http://www.minorleagueball.com/2012/...pects-for-2013

    He really, really likes Baez (Sheffield), Soler (Sosa), and Vogelbach (Fielder).

    I don't think Baez deserves that A yet.

    Yeah i like Matz too but like you mentioned health is his main concern and he is behind in his development because of those injuries.

    They had to shut him down at the end of the year last year too.

    Clayton Blackburn is a name, should stick around with SF.

    His stuff isnt anything special, but I guess being a #3 starter in the NL West isnt too unrealistic for him.

    Sean Nolin, Nik Turley, Ryan Carpenter, or Grayson Garvin amongst tall college aged AL East LHSP prospects?

    It should probably just be between Nolin and Turley...I'm liking Turley, but I also hear I overrate Yankee prospects.

    What do you guys think about Mike Olt? The word is that the Mets can get Olt for Dicket if Texas does not sign Grienke. Olt would be blocked at 1B/3B so he would play in the corner OF for us.

    How good is he?

    Olt is legit defensively as a 3B. Offensively I question his ability to make contact but he'll walk and hit for power when he does get going as a MLer.
