Community Ratings of Last Year's Rookies- #15

Tony Cingrani wins round 14 with 19 points. That now puts us at 9 of the top 14 as pitchers. By and large I think this is right and reflects that this past rookie class was heavily tilted at the top end toward pitching. Mike Zunino is next with 12 points, followed by Trevor Rosenthal with 10, Martin Perez with 6, Nolan Arenado with 4, Chris Archer (write in) with 3 and Nick Franklin with 2. No votes for Juan Lagares or Khris Davis.

1. Jose Fernandez, Marlins, Pitcher

2. Yasiel Puig, Dodgers, Outfielder

3 Wil Myers, Rays, Outfielder

4. Gerrit Cole, Pirates, Pitcher

5. Jurickson Profar, Rangers, Infielder

6. Shelby Miller, Cardinals, Pitcher

7. Michael Wacha, Cardinals, Pitcher

8. Julio Teheran, Braves, Pitcher

9. Zack Wheeler, Mets, Pitcher

10. Christian Yelich, Marlins, Outfielder

11. Anthony Rendon, Nationals, Infielder

12. Danny Salazar, Indians, Pitcher

13. Sonny Gray, A's, Pitcher

14. Tony Cingrani, Reds, Pitcher

I'm going to temporarily drop Juan Lagares and Khris Davis. I'm going to start doing permaanent drops goiong into round 17.

Temporarily Dropped- Oswaldo Arcia 1 vote (round 12), Leonys Martin 0 votes (round 12), Jose Iglesias, 1 vote (round 13), Avisail Garcia, 0 votes (round 13), Dan Straily, 0 votes (round 13), Khris Davis 0 votes (round 14), Juan Lagares 0 votes (round 14)

I'm going to put Chris Archer back on the ballot based on last round's write in support. I'm also going to give Brad Miller and and Hyun-Jin Ryu back on the ballot. I'm going to add Tyler Skaggs for the first time.

That leaves Jared Cosart, Jedd Gyorko, AJ Pollock and Matt Adams to be added soon list. Let me know of any other players you want added to the rotation, although consider that the plan is to go out to 20, do one final "honorable mention" round and then stop, so there is no point adding players who you don't think are in or near at least the top 25-30. But I would like another name or two to add to this list.

So who is the #15 prospect for future performance among last year's rookies? If any clarification is needed, we are essentially rating this group of players for their future as if they were still prospects, the same as we did last year when they had their rookie eligibility. As a reminder voting is by +1 for your #1 candidate, and +2 for your #2 candidate.
