Tyler Lyons a prospect?  Where do people think he may fall in these rankings, he had a pretty fair season last year.

Kenny Peoples-Walls was doing pretty fair before his injury, he should becoming up also

---------------------------------------------

Lyons for me is in the range of 36-44 not sure about his soft tossing stuff as a LOOGY although you'd have to like his successful track record on the mound with amount of IP in pro ball.

People's Walls is still very very raw but you have to like his athleticism he brings on the field showed strides with the bat and defensively with GCL in 12. Walls is in the high 40s-to-low-50s on my list....

Butler had a good, if not spectacular season, when you consider the TL is a hitter's league, and could well advance to Memphis next season. I can't recall seeing how hard he throws, but the K's and avg. vs. and e.r.a. are all positives. HR's allowed could have to do with the TL parks.

---------------------------------------------

From seeing Butler sits high 80s on FB with plus MLB ready slider. Butler is very good at getting out of jams as well posted a solid 79.8 LOB% this season for SPF while converting 25 saves.

#36 Collin Walsh. 2013 will be interesting for the switch hitter especially at which level he's start out at.

I think there are still a number of pitchers to consider:
Silfredo Garcia
Ben O'Shea
Robert Stock
Keith Butler
Tyler Lyons
Jorge Rondon
Anthony Ferrara

So far Roberto De La Cruz seems like the biggest waste of $1.1M..

Wasn't De La Cruz the best bat in that crop of Dominican hitters??  Doesn't say much for the rest.

steve bean.

drafted in 2012 and thought of as a top 100 draft prospect by multiple sources before that draft.

great defensively and makes consistent solid contact with a body that projects to grow into power.

RE: 2013 Cardinal Nation Community Prospect Voting Thread 


Providing a list of 10 guys I think to consider (doing so per request)

(in no particular order)
- Michael Blazek: According to MLB, our #13 prospect. AA reliever (used to be a starter) who doesn't give up many hits (61 in 80 IP) and K's about 1 per inning. When contact made, can be susceptible to HR. Little higher BB ratio than preferred
- Scott Gorgen: According to MLB, our #16 prospect. AAA/AA starter w/plus changeup who projects as a back of rotation starter. Gives up less than 1 H/IP and avg K/IP. When called up to AAA, success same as AA pretty much
- Robert Stock: According to MLB, our #14 prospect. Drafted as a catcher, but moved to pitcher this spring with good success in MWL. Reports say solid 3 pitch mix. Will moved to starting (which he did in college) in 2nd pro yr
- Steve Bean: #11 GCL prospect according to BA. Drafted in compensation round of 2012. Rated top 100 draft prospect before draft by multiple sources. Reports say very good defensively, who makes consistent contact and should grow into power. 19 y/o
- Silfredo Garcia: In two levels of rookie ball w/66ip, gave up a total of 50 hits, 4 walks, 4 HRs while striking out 75. Fastball in low 90s, changeup is a K pitch, well developed breaking ball, and above average command
- Audry Perez: Reports say he is the best catcher in the system based off defensive ability. Also hit solidly at AA earning Texas League mid season all star. Doing pretty good in Dominican Winter League so far
- Jorge Rondon: Reliever in AAA with a mid/upper 90s fastball and a hard slider. Good at avoiding hits and has a very good groundball ratio helping to giving up only 2 HRs in 49ip between AA and AAA. Control could be a little better, mainly of his secondary pitch
- Mike O'Neil: Great at getting on base, especially with the bat, but not a lick of power at all. Kept that profile up through AA and the AFL. Defensively, he could be a little better
- Adam Ehrlich: Currently a 19 y/o catcher who was drafted in the 6th round of 2011. Hit .329 this yr with a good walk rate along and is reported to be very good defensively
- Colin Walsh: Good bat, but bad defensively as he has been shifted all over the field to try and find a position since his normal draft position, 2B, was the source of many errors. Doing around league average batting in AFL currently, but still struggling to find a position as he's shifting around alot there too

Re: 2013 Cardinal Nation Community Prospect Voting Thread 


Many here seem to be reaching a bit for Top Prospect #36. I prefer to go the safe route and tab The Big Bopper(Jeremy Schaffer) with this, our 36th selection.

LOL with the "SenorPugs" comment, CFlood!!

Audry Perez at #36. (next best catcher in system after Molina and Cruz). Too soon to tell on Bean.

Tyler Lyons had a pretty fair year split between AA and AAA at age 24. Acceptable WHIP, decent K/9 (especially in AAA), in two hitter-happy leagues. He gets my vote.
