2012 Washington Nationals Consensus Top 30 Prospects

Introduction

I have created a cumulative prospect list for each team based on other (more knowledgeable) peoples’ lists. Each time a prospect appears on a list, he gets a number of points (21 minus his ranking). The prospect with the largest amount of points is ranked first. I will be posting each team once they have been completed by all of my sources. You can find a link to all of the other teams top prospects on the Team Prospects page. Clicking on the links below will take you to the team’s list on each respective site.

Three of the lists were not updated to account for the A.J. Cole, Brad Peacock and Derek Norris trade. In order to account for this, I deleted each prospect’s ranking from each list and re-ranked the players below him. The points are still added up in the same way as before.

I included another column to the table named “Con. Rank,” which is the consensus overall ranking of each prospect, as compiled by me.

Do Pitchers Who Attack Hitters Early in the Count Give up More Solo Home Runs?

I have heard this many times and finally decided to look at it. Baseball commentators will say “Justin Masterson really attacks hitters early in the count so he tends to give up more solo home runs.” First of all, Masterson doesn’t get a lot of first strikes and he doesn’t give up a high relative amount of solo HRs. But moving on…

I looked at all pitchers years 2009-2011 who gave up at least 10 total home runs and compared their solo HRs with HRs with runners on base. I then compared this to each pitcher’s Zone% and First Strike%. The Zone% should capture how aggressive a pitcher is overall, while the First Strike% should capture how aggressive the pitcher is early in the count.

2012 New York Yankees Consensus Top 33 Prospects

Introduction

I have created a cumulative prospect list for each team based on other (more knowledgeable) peoples’ lists. Each time a prospect appears on a list, he gets a number of points (21 minus his ranking).

Two of the lists were not updated to account for the Michael Pineda/Jesus Montero/Jose Campos trade. In order to account for this, I found Campos’s average ranking from the rest of the lists and ranked him there on the two lists that missed him. The points are still added up in the same way as before.

I included another column to the table named “Con. Rank,” which is the consensus overall ranking of each prospect, as compiled by me.
