Fangraphs Top 34 StL Prospects

Post by Jocephus »

https://blogs.fangraphs.com/top-34-pros ... cardinals/
System Overview

This system is fine. There are a couple of potential impact talents up top, several young, high-variance players who could join them if things click (most of the 40+ tier), and pitching depth and depth up the middle, though you have to venture into the Others of Note to find the latter.

There seems to be an org-wide taste for righty corner power bats, as all three departments have acquired at least one in the last few years. The pro department has had an impact even though the Cardinals perennially compete because the club has traded for younger prospects with the glut of upper-level outfielders they signed and developed well. The same stable vibe the big league team gives off is present in St. Louis’ talent acquisition track record.

I haven't found a single prospect analyst among the ones I follow on Twitter who agrees with Fangraph's assessment of Carlson's defense.

shoot, kiley did a chat today, we could have asked

this was only carlson question i see he was asked and it's general

Desperate Times: Saw the Cards list. Fantastic work. What are your reservations on Dylan Carlson? Is he more like Stephen Piscotty than superstar?

Avatar Kiley McDaniel: Lack of big raw power/exit velos for a corner guy. That’s really it. He’s still young and has some projection, but the data matches the eyes thus far.

Clay Davenport had him as a 40 in CF last year.

That pretty much jives with what Fangraphs is saying.

That said, Clay Davenport also loves the kid and thinks he has a good shot at not just stardom, but some HOF outcomes as well.
