With the organizational rankings done, the most recent AQA thread on the books, and Matt Garrioch's 2012 Top International Prospects Signing list posted, here are the next set of upcoming items here at Minor League Ball as we wait for the start of spring training.
****Prospect Retrospectives for the following players (order to be determined): Jacoby Ellsbury, Randy Johnson, Kenny Lofton, Justin Morneau, Mike Piazza, Derek Jeter, Albert Pujols, George Brett, Mike Schmidt, Jason Schmidt, Doug Fister, Bo Jackson, Jonathan Papelbon, Robin Ventura, Tom Glavine, CC Sabathia, Ken Griffey Jr.. That's a big list but all of them have something (I think) to teach us about prospect development.
****Top 50 Prospects for 2013 Draft. This is the next big research project and will likely come out the end of next week.
****I'm going to write a draft report on JaCoby Jones of LSU, and Matt Garrioch is working up a bunch of other draft reports.
****Comparing the Cuban Outfielders: Yoenis Cespedes, Leonys Martin, Jorge Soler, Yasiel Puig
****Prospect Smackdown: Jackie Bradley vs. Brian Goodwin
****The 2013 Baseball Prospect Book is still scheduled to ship Saturday and I will post a few more excerpts. There is still time to pre-order.
