John posted his Top 20 Marlins prospects late last night over at Minor League Ball. John has been churning out the lsits since mid-week, and here is what he had to say about the Marlins top prospect, OF Michael Stanton:
Beginning with the hitters, you have Mike Stanton, who has the tools to be a superstar but also has the potential to crash and burn badly if he's rushed too fast. He needs another 300 at-bats in Double-A, and 400 in Triple-A, before being pushed to the majors. He has All-Star upside, but he still has flaws in his game that could prevent his talent from fully coming through if he's not handled properly.
That statement seems to counter what Tommy Hutton had to say about Stanton on XM 175's Baseball This Morning show a few days ago. As a Stanton owner, I hope he is not rushed as he is still young, and the Marlins may have learned from rushing OF Cameron Maybin last year.
Head on over to Minor League Ball and check out what he says about the other Top 20 Marlins prospects.
