Baseball America, Keith Law of ESPN, and our recent guest Kevin Goldstein have now all published their top 100 (or 101 in KG’s case) prospect lists for 2011. Some of the content requires a subscription but if you click on each of their names, you can view their lists.
The matrix below shows how each prospect ranked on each of the three lists as well as their average ranking. Anyone who was not ranked on one of the three lists received a ranking of 102.
- The range in Archer’s ranking is quite surprising and I am guessing that his control issue and possible future as a late innings guy is affecting that ranking
- The Alex brothers were only ranked by Law; Torres was mentioned in KG’s interview over the weekend as he talked about his thoughts on him.
- Baseball America seems to love the best of the Rays farm system more than anyone and I do not think that has anything to do with the fact their home office is around the corner from where the Durham Bulls play.
