Here is another Padres top 30 list that I came across:

It's long, but a pretty good read if you like more scouting based analysis and there is also a podcast discussing it.

I came across this the other day. Really good indepth information on a lot of SD prospects.

Lance is a good follow on Twitter as well - although some of his scouting notes (Tatis's 'big leg kick' for example) don't match reality very well.

Thanks padscharg for this link.  Definitely worth a read & a "skim listen"...   Scout breakdown stuff interesting, but as a non-scout my eyes begin glazing after a while.    But I like to see perspective/top prospects lists from outside of Madfriars...

As Pads fans we are so insanely lucky to have the depth of coverage you guys provide on Madfriars.  But I've long felt Madfriars contributors and readers tend to have 2 specific biases:  1) Overrate limited ceiling guys who have been in the system for years  Ex. Austin Allen                    2)  Overrate younger prospects off one amazing season/part of season at a low level Ex. Luis Patino? (Hope I'm wrong).  Also tend to underrate guys who miss substantial part of a year to injury.

... which includes a mention of Tirso!

Feel free to lob any questions about my top 30 at me here...

Obviously you're not buying in to Buddy Reeds complete domination of the Cal league last year?

Would you then say that this year in AA is critical to his future with the Padres?

 

I think he's going to need another re-make of his swing if he's going to succeed in Double-A. He's already shown an ability to make adjustments once, so that's a plus, but a lot of the extra bases he got in the Cal League (singles turned into doubles; doubles turned into triples or inside-the-park homers) inflated his slugging percentage.

Do I think he's the guy who put up a .214 wOBA in a couple hundred plate appearances in the Texas League? No. But I wouldn't be surprised if he's closer to that than the Cal League .399 wOBA from the first 80 games of the season.

I think this year is critical to having a crack at the big league level in some capacity for any organization.

Big difference between John having him 16th and your list not including him at all.

I’m just surprised his struggles after his promotion to AA have taken him from top 20 in the #1 system to completely irrelevant as a prospect.

I’ll be watching closely hoping he turns it back around.
