Top American League Prospects

New, 8 comments

In terms of evaluating prospects, Baseball America is the gold standard by which other prospecters are measured. Last week they finished their Top 10 Prospects for the AL. For those too lazy to click through or for those who want a better-presented listing, here they are with their highest reached level in 2006.

TEAM POS PLAYER HIGH 2006 LEVEL
Baltimore 3B Billy Rowell Rookie
New York LHP Philip Hughes AA
Boston OF Jacoby Ellsbury AA
Toronto OF Adam Lind Majors
Tampa Bay OF Delmon Young Majors
Detroit OF Cameron Maybin Low A
Chicago OF Ryan Sweeney Majors
Minnesota RHP Matt Garza Majors
Cleveland RHP Adam Miller AAA
Kansas City 3B Alex Gordon AA
Oakland OF Travis Buck AA
Seattle OF Adam Jones Majors
Texas LHP John Danks AAA
Anaheim SS Brandon Wood AA

For fantasy baseball purposes, this list provides a source of sleepers going into 2007 non-keeper leagues. Any player who reached AAA or higher in 2006 will likely see the majors in 2007. And those who reached AA are a hot start in AAA from getting recalled i.e. Jacoby Ellsbury.
