Interesting that Luke Weaver's ranking on BA went down that far considering the season he has had so far in the minors.

No Bader or O'Neill in the mlb.com midseason top 100. Perez also fell out.

Sean Newcomb just graduated and MLB added Tyler O'Neill as its 100th prospect tonight.

Bader Hype is high right now with the callup, but I think some Cardinals fans will be surprised to know that he actually hasn't been that highly regarded of a prospect nationally. IMO Bader falls more in the 150 range.

Bader's problem is going to be getting on base and/or hitting for average. He Ks a lot more than you'd like and doesn't walk much. I'm not even sure if he has a batting eye as his approach from what I'd seen and read can best be described as hyper aggressive.

Fangraphs:
1. Alex Reyes, RHP
2. Carson Kelly, C
3. Jack Flaherty, RHP
4. Delvin Perez, SS
5. Sandy Alcantara, RHP
6. Dakota Hudson, RHP
7. Magneuris Sierra, CF
8. Tyler O’Neill, OF
9. Harrison Bader, OF
10. Jordan Hicks, RHP

This system has depth, especially on the mound, and there was no room for gigantic teenager Johan Oviedo nor strike-throwing righty Zac Gallen, who is already at Triple-A in his first full pro season. Flaherty looks like an above-average starter after seeing a slight uptick in stuff across an already well-rounded repertoire. Perez has struggled early on but still has star-level tools.

No Weaver on that list. I'm not surprised.

Hmm. He and Alex Reyes have pitched similar amounts in the majors.
