2013 Houston Astros Consensus Top 29 ProspectsPosted: February 12, 2013
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.
Since the trade of Jed Lowrie, Fernando Rodriguez, Chris Carter, Brad Peacock and Max Stassi between the Astros and Athletics happened so late, only two lists accounted for it. To account for this, I took Peacock and Stassi’s average ranking from those two lists (11 and 18, respectively) and inserted them into the lists that missed them. If a list did not have at least 11 or 18 prospects on it, I excluded them from that list. All other prospects behind them were bumped down one ranking.

The “Change” column describes how the prospect’s status changed from 2012. a positive number means the prospect moved up in the list, while a negative number means he moved down. A prospect’s name is green if he is new to the organization this year.
