    Grades are based on a prospect’s projected value over the course of his career and how likely it is that prospect will fulfill his projected value. Various factors are accounted for including upside, red flags, actual performance, and closeness to the majors. See the 2012 Top Prospect List Primer for more information as it relates to prospect grading and philosophy. Grades can be subject to change.

TO QUALIFY

    Hitters must have 100 or fewer Major League ABs.
    Starting pitchers must have 50 or fewer Major League innings.
    Relief pitchers must have 25 or fewer Major League innings.

Prospect Quick Takes

    1. Wily Peralta | RHP | Age – 22 | Grade – B … See his pitch-by-pitch breakdown by clicking here
    2. Taylor Jungmann | RHP | Age – 22 | Grade – B … First round pick is a potential No. 2 starter.
    3. Tyler Thornburg | RHP | Age – 22 | Grade – B/B- … Projected as a reliever out of college, but he’s shown himself to be a starter thus far.
    4. Jed Bradley | LHP | Age – 21 | Grade – B- … Milwaukee’s second first round pick, Bradley is a college starter who actually still has quite a bit of development ahead of him.
    5. Jorge Lopez | RHP | Age – 19 | Grade – B- … Extremely projectable righty with solid pitches already in his arsenal.
    6. Logan Schafer | CF | Age – 25 | Grade – C+ … Injuries have hurt his development the past couple of years, but he still put together a strong season in the at bats he did get last year.
    7. Scooter Gennett | 2b | Age – 22 | Grade – C+ … Numbers are a little deceiving because of a slow start last year. Learning to draw more walks would do a lot to improve his value.
    8. Cody Scarpetta | RHP | Age – 23 | Grade – C+ … He really wasn’t all that good last year. Strikeouts were down and walks remain a problem. I see a future in the bullpen.
    9. Taylor Green | INF | Age – 25 | Grade – C+ … Monster offensive season came out of nowhere last year. Still doesn’t change the fact that he’s likely offensive utility player who can play a bit of everywhere.
    10. Michael Fiers | RHP | Age – 26 | Grade – C+ … Continues to put up impressive numbers without dominant stuff. He’s Major League ready.
    11. David Goforth | RHP | Age – 23 | Grade – C+ … Has one of the best arms in the organization, but he’s never had the results to match. If he can honeh his command, and find a secondary pitch to complement his fastball, he could move quickly.
    12. Orlando Arcia | SS | Age – 17 | Grade – C+ … Very, very young, but in a system where the offensive talent is thin and frankly old (from a prospect standard), his upside and youth stand out.
    13. Caleb Gindl | OF | Age – 23 | Grade – C+ … He’s the same prospect he’s always been: nice bat, but good enough for a corner spot? Probably not. He makes a nice fourth outfielder though, and his improved contact rate is a good sign.
    14. Michael Reed | RF | Age – 19 | Grade – C … Like Arcia, he’s here because of his youth, and overall upside even though he’s a long shot to reach it.
    15. Khris Davis | OF | Age – 24 | Grade – C … Pounded High-A pitching but struggled mightily in Double-A. He’s old for his level.
    *Brandon Kintzler is no longer considered prospects based on the criteria set forth for these lists.
