As for Dorn, outside of higher round picks, what happens in rookie ball doesnt overly impress me much. If Dorn comes out next year and tears up whatever league he is playing in, then I am sure he will jump up, at least in my standings. Coming out as a 30 something round pick, he will have to show at the next level that he is up to par rather than a polished college hitter.
Supposedly Dorn has more talent than his round-drafted indicates- he was injured and missed a healthy portion of his last college season. But your main point still stands.
Vazquez is post-TJ surgery, and perhaps he's added velocity? That's the only thing I can think of that might elevate him. He held his own in AA after the promotion, but certainly didn't dominate. A ton of unearned runs probably made things look better than they were.
As for the list, I'd say Cody Strait and Phil Dumatrait are too low and Milton Loo and Javon Moran are a little high. But overall that's a pretty decent list.
