    Man, the FSL is such a terrible hitter's league. How does a .269/.405/.299 line equate to a 119 wRC+?

    Really impressed with the plate discipline. Not necessarily because he is young, but we all know of Vlad's desire to be called up as soon as possible. If you're young and desperate you'd probably do too much and swing for the fences all the time. But nope - this kid is doing what he's always been doing and doesn't mind taking the walk rather than the XBH.

    We've got two teenagers in A+ both with good power and one is walking more than striking out, while the other has a K rate below 10%. Amazing

    Have to think Edward Olivares will get called up to Dunedin to give them a boost. They have a chance to make the Flordia State League playoffs. Good shape in the second half standings.

    Be nice for Bo and Vlad who have really propelled that team since moving up.

    Holy crap! I didn't even note that, the last time I looked at Bo's fangraphs page. I know it's only a 20 game stretch but he's cut his k-rate down from 17.5% to 9.7% with the jump to, not only, a higher level, but, also, a notoriously pitcher friendly league.

    If this continues, I don't understand how he could not be Top 10-20 overall, or better, by season's end.

    A K rate has nothing to do with the league? It has everything to do with the approach. Stop trying, Thanos! Just enjoy.

    He won't get the top rankings from publications until he performs at AA, regardless of his stat lines. Scouts who look at his approach and mechanics still have concerns about how it will play against high level competition.

    He's shut them up so far.... hes only hitting .400 for his minor league career across 3 levels as a 19 year old...but AA will be his true test for those scouts and prospect sheets. I think it's a stretch for the main publications to put him top 10-20 to startvthe season but if he hits at AA to start next season, I have no doubt he'd jump to top 5-10 by midseason.

    If Bo finishes the season hitting .300-.400 in High-A, I can see him being top 15 in some lists. I think at this point, most scouts have bought into his unorthodox approach.

    AA will be interesting. The jump from A+ to AA is the hardest in all of baseball. That'll be the biggest test for Bo in the minors.

    the jump to MLB is not harder?

    Obviously the MLB is better than AA, but for prospects, AA is known as their proving ground.

    They wrote an article on it for the Hardball Times: http://www.hardballtimes.com/the-double-a-jump-2/

    Best of the Best

    1. Braves

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ves-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Our preseason No. 1 still has depth as well as impact talent.

    2. White Sox

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...Sox-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Massive farm system makeover has White Sox nipping on Braves' heels.


    Elite Farm Systems

    3. Phillies

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ies-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Phillies are still deep in upper-level talent but also helped by improvement from young pitchers.

    4. Padres

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...res-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Many of Padres best prospects are in Class A and below, but depth of the farm system is notable.

    5. Astros

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ros-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Development of Franklin Perez, Forrest Whitley and Yordan Alvarez boosts already deep group.

    6. Rays

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ays-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Depth less notable here than strength of the top prospects.

    7. Yankees

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ees-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Even after trading to help bullpen and rotation, Yankees are still loaded.




    Near-Elite Farm Systems

    8. Brewers

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...Logo-50x50.png

    The skinny: Big league Brewers have been better than expected in '17; farm system should keep momentum going in '18.

    9. Blue Jays

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ays-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: The system is top-heavy, but the trio of Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Bo Bichette and Anthony Alford is a great way to lead off a system.

    10. Dodgers

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ers-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Even after Yu Darvish deal, Dodgers have Walker Buehler, Alex Verdugo leading a strong group. L.A. has drafted very well of late.

    11. Reds

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...eds-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Adding Nick Senzel and Hunter Greene at the top of the last two drafts has buoyed an already deep system.


    Middle of the Pack

    12. Indians

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ans-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Francisco Mejia/Triston McKenzie are the Indians' battery of the future.

    13. Cardinals

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...als-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: While 2017 has been a wasted year for Cards in majors, the farm system has gotten deeper and better.

    14. Pirates

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...tes-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Graduations have thinned the system, but Mitch Keller is still a great No. 1 prospect.

    15. Rockies

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ies-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Rockies graduated Jeff Hoffman, German Marquez, Antonio Senzatela and Kyle Freeland, understandably dropping them in the rankings.

    16. Athletics

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ics-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Recent trades have helped bolster the system. If Dustin Fowler and James Kaprielian are healthy next year, the A's will climb.

    17. Mets

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ets-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Injuries have hurt the Mets at the big league and minor league levels.

    18. Nationals

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...als-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: The top of the Nationals' Top 10 is really impressive, but system thins out quickly.


    Bottom-Third Farm Systems

    19. Twins

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...96-150x150.png

    The skinny: Twins sold off pieces at deadline but lacked the big league talent to land impact prospects in return.

    20. Red Sox

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...Sox-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Michael Chavis' development this year helps a trade-thinned system.

    21. Rangers

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ers-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Darvish trade can't fully make up for graduations/trades of past two years.

    22. Orioles

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...les-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Austin Hays and Ryan Mountcastle's development provides some hope amidst big league struggles.

    23. Mariners

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ers-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Mariners have made a ton of trades, but some have hurt more than they have helped.

    24. Diamondbacks

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...cks-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Good work by Arizona front office allowed it to land impact bat in J.D. Martinez while retaining top four prospects.

    25. Tigers

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ers-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: With Alex Faedo and Matt Manning developing in the low minors, Tigers will likely rise in next year's farm system rankings.


    Bottom of the Barrel

    26. Angels

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...3202-90x90.png

    The skinny: After years of drought, the first green shoots of growth are poking through the topsoil, led by Jordon Adell.

    27. Giants

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...nts-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Some Giants prospects have taken leaps forward this year, but the lack of impact talent is apparent, as is a lack of upper-level help.

    28. Cubs

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ubs-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Trades of Eloy Jimenez, Isaac Paredes and Jeimer Candelario leave Cubs with a very pitching-heavy Top 10.

    29. Royals

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...als-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Royals managed to help big league club without hurting farm system much, but team lacks any Top 100 Prospects.

    30. Marlins

    image: http://www.baseballamerica.com/wp-co...ami-Cap-4c.jpg

    The skinny: Trades, injuries have left Marlins very thin in prospects in full-season ball.

    Midseason Top 10 farms according to MLB.com:

    1. Chicago White Sox
    2. Atlanta Braves
    3. San Diego Padres
    4. New York Yankees
    5. Tampa Bay Rays
    6. Oakland A's
    7. Philadelphia Phillies
    8. Milwaukee Brewers
    9. Houston Astros
    10. Los Angeles Dodgers

    I think we've got to be creeping up that Top 10 at this point. According to prospect points, we're #11.
