I have a hard time believing Endy Rodriguez is 13th best prospect...

That list is even more recent-IFA heavy than expected.

Not really sure how some of those guys are top twenty and Dedniel is just an honorable mention. Is age worth that many spots?

Jaylen Palmer at 15 is curious. OK, he was drafted from HS and those guys sometimes have upside, but 108Ks in 276 PAs in Kingsport? Yikes.

I'm guessing their ranking system is tools over stats.

I'm a big Palmer fan but I'm not sure I'd have that high yet...

I DO see him breaking out a bit this year.

His K rate is scary-bad.

I’m trying to decide if it’s good or bad that there are a half dozen guys on the FG top 30 that I never even heard of...

I'm okay with Palmer in that range. Not really interested in stats; it's all about the physical projection. Not really any different from putting Newton in the top ten despite his stats.

They might both go the way of Ivan Wilson or they might both be Top 100 prospects in two years. At least there's upside.

Exit velocity is scary good...Alonso, Vientos then Palmer...

Palmer reminds me of a Gary Sheffield type.

A few players I would have (unscientifically) expected to see at least get mentions on this list are (in no particular order): Scott Ota, Branden Fryman, Jace Beck, Andres Regnault, Warren Saunders, Wilfred Astudillo, Cole Gordon, Luke Ritter, Jake Mangum, Daison Acosta, Darwin Ramos, Jose Butto, Villines, Nogosek, & Blackham.

Did BA do their top 20 per league this year? I'm guessing it's behind a paywall now but I liked those lists.
