Rookie maximums for at-bats (130), games pitched (30) or innings (50) in the major leagues"

If the 2 leaders are within 5% of each other, or the leader has less than 35% there will be a run-off between the top 2. If a run-off results in a tie the tiebreaker will be vote total in the previous poll, we will continue to "go back" in the polls until there is a clear leader.

*Jeff McNeil is ineligible
*Chris Flexen is ineligible

1) Andres Gimenez (SS) AA 19/37 votes- 51%
2) Peter Alonso (1B) AAA 24/36 votes- 67%
3) Jarred Kelenic (CF) Kingsport 31/36-86%
4) Ronny Mauricio (SS) Kingsport 12/33-36%
5) Justin Dunn (RHP) AA 10/37-27%, Run-off with Mark Vientos 17/30-57%
6) Mark Vientos (3b) Kingsport 16/31-52%
7) David Peterson (LHP) A+ 21/31- 68%
8) Franklyn Kilome (RHP) AA 20/33-61%
9) Thomas Szapucki (LHP) A 18/32-56%

Newton might have a toolbox, but he'll still have to get the contact up before I can take him too seriously. I have Kay, SWR and Santana before Newton as my next 4. If nothing else develops, Santana's hit tool and plate discipline alone provide a pretty high floor. And I'll assume he'll be viable at 2B. Sort of Tony Kemp profile..?

Shervyen Newton - but I predict that he won't be with the organization this time next year.

This was pretty tough. If Newton didn't strike out quite so much I'd have gone with him.
I like the depth of our minor league starters like Kay, Peterson, Dunn, and, Kilome. I just hope somebody emerges as a top end guy. My best hope right now is Puck if he can get healthy

And Newton here. I think reading too much into rookie ball stats is a fool's errand. There could be plenty of reasons Newton's striking out a lot; maybe the development team wanted him to challenge breaking balls instead of spitting on them like you usually can in rookie ball, maybe his pitch recognition isn't up to speed because of his relative lack of experience, etc. etc. His bat control sounds like it's fine, so I'm not worried about the future grade on the hit tool, and the other tools are there. Just going by tools, Newton is a better prospect than Vientos, and putting Kay above Newton would be a joke imo.

Went Newton. Could have easily gone Kay here.

Still a pretty interesting group from 11-18 or so.

BA has Kelenic #3, Vientos #7, and Newton #11 on their Appy list.

Maybe he just struggles to make contact...

I don't think scouts would be talking about him like they are if they were really worried about his hit tool.

Went Newton, next I'm going Kay, and then Santana or SWR but conflicted which way to go on those 2.
