  • I am coming up to my vacation time from work, so I am going to work on some prospect lists from the various minor leagues. The first one I am going to tackle is the Rookie Level Appalachain League. So here goes the first batch of prospects.

    Drew Vettleson
    OF – Princeton Devil Rays
    Age - 20
    2010 1st Rd. 42nd Overall by TB
    .325 avg, 51 hits, 4 triples, 6 home runs, 34 rbi, 13 stolen bases in 15 attempts
    * - young lefty projects as a solid major league outfielder, may not have any wowing tools, but will be a solid regular

    Jamal Austin
    OF – Pulaski Mariners
    Age - 20
    2011 13th Rd. 393rd Overall by SEA
    .386 avg, 56 hits, 2 triples, 9 rbi, 19 stolen bases in 26 attempts
    * - speedster could become a 4th/5th outfielder, his speed and ability to beat out ground balls could be his ticket to the majors, think a juan pierre type player

    Chase Davidson
    1B – Greenville Astros
    Age - 21
    2011 41st Rd. 1,240th Overall by HOU
    .340 avg, 51 hits, 10 home runs, 38 rbi, 8 stolen bases in 9 attempts
    * - tall lefty who could afford to grow a bit, apparently not a clogger on the bases, if he develops more power he could make the majors in Houston

    Tyler Rahmatulla
    2B – Johnson City Cardinals
    Age - 21
    2011 34th Rd. 1,040th Overall by STL
    .322 avg, 47 hits, 3 triples, 4 home runs, 27 rbi
    * - former UCLA Bruin does his damage against righties, could become a platoon type guy if he continues to hit

    Murray Watts
    1B – Burlington Royals
    Age - 23
    2010 28th Rd. 839th Overall by KC
    .261 avg, 42 hits, 12 home runs, 36 rbi
    * - a bit old for the Appy League, but how can you not keep an eye on a guy that is 6’7 and 270 pounds? he needs to hit to keep moving because the power numbers will be his ticket, could use a change of scenery as Hosmer should be manning 1st base in KC for the next decade

    Miguel Sano
    3B – Elizabethton Twins
    Age - 18
    UDFA by MIN from Dominican Republic
    .288 avg, 51 hits, 6 triples, 10 home runs, 29 rbi
    * - kid is huge and has a fantastic speed/power combination, if he develops like projected he could become a superstar, he should be a big league regular. best prospect in the Appy League

    Lucas La Point
    RHP – Danville Braves
    Age – 20
    2009 23rd Rd. 688th Overall by ATL
    3 wins & 3 losses in 9 starts, 1.98 era, 1.16 whip, 50.0 IP, 38Ks to 6 BBs
    * - second time in the Appy League, but with much better results this season. doesn’t dominate, but gets the job done, could be a bullpen guy down the line.

    Tyrell Jenkins
    RHP – Johnson City Cardinals
    Age – 19
    2010 1st Rd. 50th Overall by STL
    3 wins & 1 loss in 8 starts, 3.73 era, 1.37 whip, 41.0 IP, 41 Ks to 8 BBs
    * - raw, but projectable righty has size, but needs to fill out a bit, could become a middle of the rotation starter

    Akeel Morris
    RHP – Kingsport Mets
    Age – 18
    2010 10th Rd. 302nd Overall by NYM
    2 wins & 2 losses in 8 starts, 3.63 era, 1.31 whip, 39.2 IP, 53 Ks to 26 BBs
    * - another raw prospect with a live, but wild arm. he has kept hitters under .190 in his two pro seasons, if he continues to develop and amass strikeouts he could be an end of the rotation type starter.

    Matthew Murray
    RHP – Burlington Royals
    Age – 21
    2011 10th Rd. 306th Overall by KC
    2 wins & 3 losses in 10 starts, 3.18 era, 0.94 whip, 44.2 IP, 49 Ks to 8 BBs
    * - big righty does well against righties, could make a bullpen down the line as he racks up strikeouts and doesn’t give up hits

    Nick Graffeo
    RHP – Burlington Royals
    Age – 23
    2010 38th Rd. 1,139th Overall by KC
    3 wins & 1 loss in 13 appearances, 4 saves, 1.51 era, 0.84 whip, 35.2 IP, 44 Ks to 9 BBs
    * - a bit old for the Appy League, but has done well in relief, could be moved quickly due to his age, he has dominated righties, so I see him as more of a situational reliever in the bigs

    Thanks to Bone Krusher for the sig

      Analysts would go NUTS if that happened, could you imagine Bob Levy or Skip Bayless or hell, John Clayton?
      It seems like its winding down. Last two nights it came on his last at bat. He's due for an O-fer.

        • Have you actually seen these Appy games? Cause I've been wondering about this Brandon Drury kid on Atlanta. I'm lucky enough to get to watch AAA Gwinnett games this year, but that's the only level I've been actually watching. I'd love some first hand insight.

          Drury's K to BB ratios are ****. But he's crushing the hell out of the ball. Obviously sounds the part of a free swinger, but maintaining a .330+ average over 42 games and amassing 7 homers and 38 RBI is rather impressive on any level.

          I've also been impressed by the numbers Danville's 1B, William Beckwith, has been putting up. Looks like he has a good idea of the strike zone, posts a .414 OBP right now. Has some pop, is a perfect 7 for 7 on steal attempts, and has 3 triples. Not bad for a 220 lb first baseman.

          Thanks BoneKrusher^

              Great work. Morris actually has upside of a front of the line starter but obviously right now who knows what way he'll go. His strikeout rates are very encouraging and he does have the raw stuff to back that up. On the other hand he can't control that well right now as evidence by the walks but he has plenty of time to clean it up. Very intereresting prospect for the Mets.

                          Maybe if you change it quickly to "Extend Leyland" then he'll get fired!
