2012 MLB Draft Prospects by Age

New, 24 comments

Below is a list sorted by age of the high school players I have in the top 300 prospects. There are a few I don't have ages on but none of them should go in the first round. This list is based on standard deviation converted into the 20-80 scale. Average is 18.57, standard deviation is 0.37.

Carlos Correa is one of the youngest and also one of the best. If you were on the Francisco Lindor bandwagon due to his age, here is the new one to hop on.

There are a few good names on the list near the top. D.J. Davis is flying up draft boards this spring, just as he flies on the diamond. This is one other element that may help his cause. Chase Mullins is an interesting name. He is an enormous lefty that needs developmental time to work out his mechanics but his age is working for him.

On the other end of the spectrum, Keon Barnum is old for a high schooler as well as Rock Rucker and Avery Romero on the power hitting end.

Matt Crownover is recovering from TJ surgery and he is already old for high school.

To me the guys between 40 and 60 shouldn't be looked at too hard as out of the ordinary. For the rest, it should be considered when looking at their current skill level.
