2012 Draft Power Rankings-8/20/12

Rate this Entry
A few notes from the past week regarding the 2012 Draft Class:
  • Jose Berrios jumps to the #1 ranking thanks to a dominant performance last Friday against Kingsport (5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 11 K)
  • As I suspected last week, Taylor Rogers made his next appearance out of the bullpen, likely due to his high number of innings pitched.
  • Three players didn't accumulate any stats this past week. Luke Bard, who I suspect is still dealing with the injury that caused him to leave his Aug 10th appearance after one batter. Carson Goldsmith, who hasn't appeared since Aug 2nd. Jake Proctor, who missed the last part of his college season due to an injury. Anyone have any updates on Goldsmith or Proctor?
  • I do realize that in the lower levels of professional ball, pitchers have the upper hand and their stats do inflate their value a bit, but I am excited to see that the top performers so far are pitchers who are posting K/9 numbers that are beyond promising.
  • I am also excited the Twins got a few bats with pop (Walker, Buxton, Proctor when healthy).
  • There are always early-round busts, but I'm looking forward to seeing more positives out of disappointing starts from Buxton, Bard, Martinez, and Hurt.
  • As usual, comments are welcome and appreciated!
