System In 20 Words Or Less: The big draft class of 2009 was a mild disappointment, while the top prospect missed the season—an ugly combination.

Five-Star Prospects
1. Jarrod Parker, RHP
Four-Star Prospects
2. Tyler Skaggs, LHP
Three-Star Prospects
3. Chris Owings, SS
4. Bobby Borchering, 3B
5. Matt Davidson, 3B
6. Marc Krauss, OF
7. Wade Miley, LHP
8. Pat Corbin, LHP
9. David Holmberg, LHP
Two-Star Prospects
10. Paul Goldschmidt,, 1B
11. Tyler Linton, OF

Nine More:
12. A.J. Pollock, OF: He missed all of the regular season due to elbow surgery; many scouts see him as a 'tweener.
13. Keon Broxton, OF: He had the best tools in the Midwest League after Mike Trout, but he looks foolish against even the fringiest of breaking balls.
14. Raul Navarro, SS: The 18-year-old Dominican has a line-drive bat and true shortstop skills, giving him the potential to move up significantly.
15. J.R. Bradley, RHP: Bradley offers a silky-smooth delivery and plenty of projection; like Navarro, he could get a full report next year.
16. Sam Demel, RHP: This power-armed righty was impressive at times out of the big-league bullpen. However, he needs more consistency with his control and slider.
17. Carlos Rosa, RHP: Rosa can still light up a radar gun but has yet to figure out how to miss bats.
18. Charles Brewer, RHP: The 12th-round pick from '09 led the organization in ERA (2.45) and strikeouts (153); he has legitimate back-of-the-rotation stuff.
19. Josh Collmenter, RHP: Command, control, deception all work in his favor; but Collmenter rarely gets out of the 80s with his fastball.
20. Tyler Green, RHP: An over-slot eighth-rounder, Green has low-90s velocity and an advanced curve for teenager.

 

Borchering too high?  Davidson too low?
