Nick Melotte’s End-of-Season 2016 Prospect Stats Extravaganza

New, 3 comments

Everyone loves an extravaganza! Especially those chock-full of prospect goodness.

With the Minor League playoffs in full swing, we now have an opportunity to glance back at the season that was and really drink it in. It goes down smooth every time (unless you're an Angels fan...¯\_(ツ)_/¯  ). A lucky few players are sipping on the best cup of coffee they've had in their life. so their MLB numbers are subject to change. The minor league numbers, however, are set in stone.

For those familiar with the Gameday spreadsheets, this will be very easy to navigate. It is set up just like the Gameday's with tabs separating the hitters from the pitchers, and the different categories of players. It is color coded as well to help navigate quicker. Numbers in blue will be the specific players stats from his time in the MLB, and numbers in red are the players cumulative minor league stats if they split time between different teams. Number that are in black and also in bold are for players who stayed with the same team for the entirety of the season.

The first two tabs are the Top 175 Prospects, as ranked by John Sickels prior to the 2016 campaign. The following two tabs are for players who were deemed as "In The Picture", but not quite Top 175 material. After that we have the players John tabbed as "Sleepers" or "High Ceiling Alerts", followed by the two International Free Agent (IFA) tabs. These are players who signed for at least $500,000 since the beginning of the 2012-2013 signing period. Bringing up the rear are players from the first two rounds of the 2016 First Year Player Draft. 

Now that the how-to part of the story is done, click the following link and enjoy the End-of-Season Prospect Stats Extravaganza!

P.S. Speaking of International Free Agents, stay tuned for some big news on the front!
