    One of my personal favorites gets this spot for me, deGrom.

    Throws hard, has room to improve, has moved quickly through the system, and is almost ready. Slider and change look like average offerings to me. Nice smooth delivery and ideal pitching frame.

    I'll go with Nimmo here. I like deGrom too, but Nimmo's upside is more valuable than deGrom's in this spot.

    I really dont see what Nimmo did last year to go from a top 5 prospect of ours to getting ranked 9th. Because Rosario certainly didn't do anything to move up.

    Nimmo was #6 on our list. Wheeler and Harvey have graduated and Flores was ahead of him. This year Nimmo had more strikeouts and hit for less power(on the road too). Still very raw in his approach, defense, and baserunning.

    It's not so much that he's fallen down, it's just guys have moved ahead of him.

    Montero performed great in AA and AAA and solidified himself in our future plans as a mid-rotation starter who is ML ready. Smith was drafted #11 and has hit right from the get-go. He's gotten high praise.

    Flores continued hitting in AAA and played primarily 2B and 3B. He's ML ready. Puello took the next step(biogenesis or not) and mashed. The tools are still great there and the upside is high.

    Rosario was only 17 years old in Kingsport and is a SS with great tools. Plawecki stepped up and had a very good year compared to last year and plays a premium position at catcher. Former 1st rounder.

    That puts Nimmo from #4 to #9(if he gets this spot).

    I think deGrom should be ahead of him because only two years removed from TJ with no experience in full season ball, he reached AAA and did fine. He was a raw pitcher in college too since he played SS early on. He's got good stuff without the experience other pitchers have had at his age which gives him room to improve.

    Why is Dustin Lawley not even on the list?

    I can put him on the next one if you'd like. I think he's an organizational type personally.

    A guy who hits 25 HR in the FSL deserves to be in the conversation.

    He's a little old for the league he played in, but that kind of power in that league is impressive.

    A little old may be understating it a bit. Average age for high A ball is 22.4 years old, Lawley was 24 last year.

    I like Lawley's power but its a make or break year for him at soon to be 25 years old in April. To me, he's another Allan Dykstra.

    Lawley should be in the polls though ahead of guys like Koch and Urena. Heck I have him as a better prospect than Jayce Boyd because of his versatility and power, while the other guy has not show much power and is strictly a first baseman.

    He has been tag as the guy with the best power in our system by some and since last year I been saying how he is ahead of guys like Taijeron and Vaughn in the depth chart. He was moved to AAA at the end of the year and may well start there this year.

    He does not walk enough to get too excited about him, but that power is legit and he can steal some bases as well.
