FanGraphs Returns Sanity To Atlanta Braves 2012 Top-15 Prospects

New, 24 comments

After Keith Law got me to flail my arms around yesterday in curfuddled disagreement, Marc Hulet of FanGraphs puts the Braves prospects universe back into order with a sane (and boring, I guess, but that's good) list.

  1. Julio Teheran, RHP
  2. Arodys Vizcaino, RHP
  3. Randall Delgado, RHP
  4. Tyler Pastornicky, SS
  5. Sean Gilmartin, LHP
  6. Andrelton Simmons, SS
  7. Christian Bethancourt, C
  8. Edward Salcedo, SS
  9. Zeke Spruill, RHP
  10. Brandon Drury, 3B
  11. J.R. Graham, RHP
  12. Matt Lipka, OF
  13. J.J. Hoover, RHP
  14. Carlos Perez, LHP
  15. Joe Terdoslavich, 1B
    Sleeper: Navery Moore, RHP

Good writeups on the site, and a good list. I guess for the record I should tell you what my top-25 Braves prospects look like. I put my list together in late October last year, so no AFL performances were considered (and I'm not sure I would have put too much weight on them anyway). My top-25 after the jump (so you can bash me if you'd like). Note that the official Talking Chop top-25 is an average of my rankings, CB's, and Matt's.

Gondeee's 2012 top-25:

  1. Julio Teheran
  2. Arodys Vizcaino
  3. Randall Delgado
  4. Sean Gilmartin
  5. Edward Salcedo
  6. Andrelton Simmons
  7. Christian Bethancourt
  8. J.J. Hoover
  9. Zeke Spruill
  10. Tyler Pastornicky
  11. Joey Terdoslavich
  12. Carlos Perez
  13. Adam Milligan
  14. David Hale
  15. Brandon Drury
  16. J.R. Graham
  17. Matt Lipka
  18. Dimasther Delgado
  19. Billy Bullock
  20. Tommy LaStella
  21. Mycal Jones
  22. Navery Moore
  23. Todd Cunningham
  24. Mauricio Cabrera
  25. Jean Carlos Gil

I'm not sure I'd change too much. I might move Graham, Jones, and Moore up some.
