Down On The Farm: 2011 Fantasy Prospect Rankings and John Sickels Top A's and Astros Prospects

I posted my 2011 Top Fantasy Third Base Prospects over at Minor League Ball on Christmas Day. And here are the rest of my top fantasy prospect rankings by position:

Catching Prospects

First Base Prospects

Second Base Prospects

Shortstop Prospects

John Sickels posted his Top Astros prospects over at Minor League Ball a few days ago. Here is what he said about Astros 2010 draft pick Delino DeShields:

2) Delino DeShields, 2B, Grade B-: If he turns out like his dad, the Astros will be happy. Grade can/should rise once he gets more experience.

John Sickels posted his Top Athletics prospects over at Minor League Ball a few days ago. Here is what he said about the A's outfield prospect Michael Taylor:

9) Michael Taylor, OF, Grade C+: Bad Triple-A year, but I refuse to believe that what he did in the Phillies system was a total illusion

Taylor disappointed last year in AAA, hitting just .272-.348-.392 with 6 HRs, 78 RBIs and 16 SBs, after hitting .320-.395-.549 in 2009.
