Ranking the farm systems position by position: 2B



Using John's rankings this is how each organization's 2B prospects rank.


1.Cardinals
Kolten Wong(B+)

Wong is John's top 2B prospect in the game.

2.Padres
Cody Spangenburg(B)
Jonathan Galvez(C+)
Vincent Belnome(C+)
Drew Cumberland(Other)

Spangenburg is among the top 2B prospects in the game. Galvez is solid despite getting limited attention. Belnome is a sleeper. If Cumberland returns the way he left the game, the Padres really got a good one.


3.Orioles
Jonathan Schoop(B)
Ryan Adams(C+)
Matt Antonelli(Other)

I put Schoop at 2B instead of 3B because Buck Showalter recently called him a 2B on a MLB Radio(SiriusXM) interview and John listed him as INF. He has All-Star potential. I also think Adams is often over-looked.

4.Rangers
Roughned Odor(B)
Odubel Herrera(C+)

The Rangers are this high because Odor got a fairly high grade. He has great potential, but he isn't close and comes in raw. Herrera has some potential himself but is likely trade bait or a utility option in this organization.

5.Mets
Reese Havens(B-)
Jordany Valdespin(C+)
Phillip Evans(C+)
Josh Satin(Other)

Havens isn't a "B-" to me because he can't stay healthy. You can't produce when you aren't on the field. I see Valdespin as a utility man most likely. Evans has some potential, but is far away. Satin has already made his debut, but is most likely a utility guy.

6.Rays
Ryan Brett(B-)
Tyler Bortnick(C+)
Brett has some potential in his bat, but he's a few years away. Bortnick is more utility than starter.

7.Nationals
Stephen Lombardozzi(B-)
Jeff Kobernus(C)
Lombardozzi is under-rated because he doesn't have great tools, but produces. Still his path is currently blocked by Danny Espinosa. Kobernus could be a utility guy.

8.Red Sox
Sean Coyle(B-)
Oscar Tejeda(Other)
Coyle could become a future plus player at second after a few more years. Tejeda was fairly highly thought of a year ago before struggling last season.

9.Angels
Taylor Lindsey(B-)
Alexi Amarista(Other)
Ryan Mount(Other)
Lindsey has a very high ceiling, but is also very far away. Amarista is a utility guy that has already debuted. Mount has some potential as well.

10.Brewers
Scooter Gennett(B-)
Eric Farris(Other) Jeff Bianchi(Other)
Gennett isn't a guy with great tools, but he has a fair chance to make it as a regular. Farris is a decent prospect for an "other" prospect. Bianchi was recently claimed off waivers.

11.Braves
Tommy LaStella(B-)
Phil Gosselin(Other)
LaStella had a big year after being drafted last season, but I want to see him continue this year since he was a college bat. I think Gosselin has some ability as well.

12.Yankees
Angelo Gumbs(C+)
David Adams(C)
Corban Joseph(Other)
Gumbs has potential but is very far away. Adams and Joseph aren't too far, but will never start in the Bronx.
13.Cubs
Ronald Torreyes(C+)
Zeke DeVoss(Other)
Logan Watkins(Other)
Torreyes is small at 5'7", but he is a plus hitter. DeVoss is a speedster that BA ranks higher. Watkins has real potential in a utility role.
14.Reds
Henry Rodriguez(C+)
Ryan Wright(Other)
Rodriguez is a sleeper prospect that's been a doubles machine the last few years in the minors. Wright was a fairly highly drafted college bat that's under-ranked by John.
15.Astros
Delino DeShields(C+)
DeShields struggled in his first year as a professional, but he was a high draft pick two years ago and has the potential.

16.Indians
Cord Phelps(C+)
Phelps has some potential to be a strong utility bat off the bench.

17.Diamondbacks
David Nick(C+)
Nick is a decent prospect with some potential to be a starter.

18.Marlins
Noah Perio(C+)
Perio is a decent prospect that needs a few more years.

19.Mariners
Stefen Romero(C+)
Romero had a solid debut in Low-A last year after being drafted from Oregon State the previous June.

20.Pirates
Jarek Cunningham(Other)
Cunningham has nice pop, but has contact issues.
21.Giants
Ryan Cavan(Other)
Charlie Culberson(Other)
Culberson has some potential as a starter but projects more as a utility guy.

22.A's
Chih Fang Pan(Other)
Adrian Cardenas was recently DFA'd so I chose not to include him. Pan has potential but needs time.

23.Phillies
Harold Garcia(Other)
Cesar Hernandez(Other)
Garcia and Hernandez don't project as much more than utility guys.
t-24.Royals
Jeff Bianchi was listed, but has since been claimed by the Cubs.

t-24.Twins

t-24.Tigers

t-24.Blue Jays
