Top ## List

mlb.com issued new lists ... Top 100 overall ... Top 30 for each team ...

http://m.mlb.com/prospects/2018?list=sd

... no surprises for me ... except, maybe, missing Eguy Rosario ... maybe instead of Dylan Coleman?  I just don't know anything about Dylan Coleman.  Andres Munoz seems low to me at #22 ... I'd have him at 9/10ish.

Coleman is a hard throwing righty 96 on the gun in FW nice run on the FB. High upside low floor. Probably goes back to starting next year.

 

What's the deal with Quantrill?

Shouldn't a guy ranked in the top 10 of the best system in baseball be more dominant than he has been?

Is he just cruising and working on stuff and no one is concerned with his results?

Cause if that was the case I would feel much better about him.

I thought the same about Lauer last year and now I see his FB is just too straight to consistently "not" get pounded at this level......does Quantrill have this same issue?

 

How deep is the Padres system?

Hudson Potts is 19 and in High A and in the top 5 of alot of offensive categories and is our #23 prospect!

The kid has FIFTY ONE xbh's already including 33 doubles!

WOW!

If he can cut down on his K's even a little he will be a top 100 Prospect.

Quantrill is staving off dropping due to initial hype, essentially the new Casey Kelly. Potts and Naylor are just criminally underrated. It's not a depth thing.

mlb.com's pick for a new entry onto its Top 100 list next year ... David Weathers

Notes:

2017: 9 | 2016: 25 | 2015: 14 | 2014: 6 | 2013: 15

9 Top 100 Prospects: SS Fernando Tatis (2), LHP MacKenzie Gore (21), LHP Adrian Morejon (24), C Francisco Mejia (25), 2B Luis Urias (30), RHP Chris Paddack (59), LHP Logan Allen (70), RHP Michel Baez (73), 1B Josh Naylor (83).

State of the System: It’s hard to find many weaknesses in a system loaded in pitching at nearly all levels, that has an elite shortstop prospect who played in Double-A this season as well as a smattering of talented hitters at nearly all levels of the minors. The Padres have the kind of prospect depth that should help them weather the attrition that always occurs when a loaded system switches from accumulating talent to producing big league wins. Beyond the eight prospects in the Top 100, there are another wave of prospects who could crack next year’s Top 100 (Luis PatinoJacob NixAnderson EspinozaAustin AllenBuddy ReedXavier Edwards and others). Now, Padres general manager A.J. Preller’s biggest task is sorting out which prospects are keepers and which ones should be traded to speed the big league club’s rebuild.
