As promised, I'm going to provide Seiler Ratings on the blog for each of the players that will be going into my 2010 MLB Draft Notebook.
The rating for each player comprises three parts: his prospective draft position, his ceiling, and his chances of reaching that ceiling.
In general, better players have a lower first number, a higher alphabetical second part (A is best), and a higher third number. For example, Bryce Harper gets a rating of 1A2. He will be drafted in the first three rounds, has a ceiling of a superstar, and has a 20 percent chance of reaching that ceiling (this includes chance of injury, etc.).
Follow the jump to see my grades for each of the Nevada prospects that are likely to be in the Draft Notebook. Not all will make the cut, as I'm planning on cutting to about 775 players, but all of these have received a grade.
These players are organized by rating. The ranking is done by each piece, so the players with a first number of 1 come first, then I rank them by ceiling with the letter in the second spot, then by chance of reaching that ceiling in the third spot. Ties are ranked by my personal judgment.
