Down On The Farm: John Sickels' Top 20 Pirates Prospects for 2011

John Sickels published his Top 20 Pittsburgh Pirates Prospects for 2011 on Monday and he is very high on 2010 first round pick Jameson Taiilon. Here are some of his thoughts on Taillon:

1) Jameson Taillon, RHP, Grade B+: This grade is actually conservative; if he lives up to full potential it will be an A- or even an A soon enough. Future number one starter if all goes according to plan.

Sickels is a tough grader and for him to give Taillon a B+ rating is saying something. Who would you rather have in a keeper league Taillon or Julio Teheran?

Head on over to Minor League Ball and check out the rest of the Pirates Top 20 prospects.
