Stat comparison for the ones that actually matter (hint: OPS isn't one of them)
Player BB% K% IsoP Level
Mesoraco 9.80% 21.30% .153 A+
Silva 12.70% 27.10% .182 Rookie
I will take Mesoraco's plate discipline because he struck out much less at a much higher level and still have a strong walk rate. Power leans toward Silva right now. Both guys were young for their levels, so no advantage there. Catcher is a much tougher position than corner outfield, so Mesoraco gets an advantage there. Silva has more speed.
And Mesoraco also walked less. It looks to be a bit more even. Sure, Mes does play a more premium position, but I'd say Silva is the better prospect at this moment.
