Minor League Ball's preliminary prospect list

One of our favorite prospect blogs, Minor League Ball, has posted its preliminary Top 20 prospect list.

Here are the Top 10, you'll have to click it to get the next 10:

1) Jordan Lyles
2) Delino DeShields
3) Mike Foltynewicz
4) Austin Wates
5) J.D. Martinez
6) Tanner Bushue
7) Aneury Rodriguez
8) Mark Melancon
9) Jonathan Villar
10) Jimmy Paredes

Interesting that Rule 5 pick Anuery Rodriguez is now our 7th-best prospect. And all of these come in on the Ed Wade tenure.

The sad part about that list is that all of them except Lyles have only had very limited success at low levels. J.D. Martinez has had one good season (but I am hopeful it will continue).

It will be interesting to see what some of these just drafted and just signed guys will do in pro ball. I am particularly excited about Ariel Ovando.

It is still a better outlook than it was 2 years ago, though. And for that, I am thankful.

David - absolutely. We're not quite there yet, but it is getting better...
