Really shocking that foltynewicz isn't on there.

He mentions in the comments that he heard bad reports on Foltynewicz's stuff and body language in Greeneville. I don't know where he heard them, but those concerns haven't been mentioned anywhere else. BA was pretty high on Folty in their own rankings, not that the lists make a lick of difference. We'll see how he looks next year.

Would Folty be doing a 10-question segment with MiLB.com if he typically displays bad body language? I don't think so. In all seriousness, as much as i don't have too much respect for Law i'm glad to see Nash make a Top 10. His stock could soar this season if he picks up where he left off last season

Why is Martinez listed as a RHP and not an OF on this list? Has something changed that I am unaware of?
