Here's a rough draft(read: I probably forgot someone) of the top hitters and pitchers at this point. 2010 draft picks are not included in the rankings, but they're mentioned afterwords:
1. Desmond Jennings - Early struggles seem to be over, still has the tools, though the home run power is noticeably absent.
2. Tim Beckham - Note that there is a big dropoff from #1 to #2. This is almost by process of elimination.
3. Luke Bailey - Hit his first career HR yesterday, just needs ABs and time behind the plate now.
4. Todd Glaesmann
5. Jeff Malm - The other two 2009 high draft picks check in.
6. Hector Guevara - Venezuelan shortstop skips over GCL to play with Princeton.
7. Matt Sweeney - Bat has been MIA after promotion to Montgomery.
8. Ty Morrison - Has shown great speed, but his other tools have catching up to do. I still like him.
The Rest: The system is still really weak on hitters, though the infusion of the 2010 class (Sale, O'Conner, Vettleson, Dietrich, Brett) will surely help. In fact, even if Sale signs late and doesn't get an AB in pro ball, I might still rank him #2. That depends on how the Bailey-Glaesmann-Malm troika performs, as all three have the chance to claim that #2 spot.
Tyler Bortnick has picked things up after a slow start, and would probably make the off-season top 15 again. Kyeong Kang, #4 on the list entering the season, has struggled with Charlotte and is still looking for his first home run. Shawn O'Malley was aggressively ranked at #8, but he hit .172 in 9 games for Montgomery before going on the shelf, only recently returning to rehab in the GCL. Cody Rogers(#12) is also rehabbing. #13 Jake Jefferies' OPS is just .606. Reid Brignac and John Jaso have both graduated, and Jaso was obviously the biggest under-rank.
1. Jeremy Hellickson - Nothing new here.
2. Matt Moore - On pure stuff, an easy choice. He's had some trouble harnessing it, though his control has been much better lately.
3. Alex Torres - More K than IP, walks haven't been as big a problem, but still needs to throw more strikes to keep his pitch count lower.
4. Alex Colome
5. Jake McGee - I still think his future is in the bullpen, but he's been quite good as a starter with Montgomery.
6. Wilking Rodriguez
7. Alex Cobb - Nothing to not like since returning from injury.
8. Nick Barnese - Very similar to Cobb: No one great strength, but not showing much weakness either.
9. Shane Dyer -Ranking 9 instead of 8 here simply because Dyer deserves it.
Wade Davis is the only pitcher to have graduated. #5 Kyle Lobstein couldn't carry over his hot finish from 2009, but he's still likely to place on this off-season's list. #9 Jason McEachern has run into some struggles with Bowling Green. I still like him going forward, but his stuff will have to show improvement. #12 David Newmann has had bouts of control issues, but his groundball tendencies are still a plus. #13 Joseph Cruz's control hasn't been as good as it was with Bowling Green a year ago, but he's still decent across the board. #14 Matt Gorgen is walking too many, and if a reliever makes this year's list, it will likely be Zach Quate. #15 Aneury Rodriguez has also had issues with walks.
So what do you guys think?
