Me thinks Sickles has this one right in terms of his ranking at value at this juncture.
Are you referring to Yorman Rodriguez here? If so, you are forgetting one large thing here.... he was 17 years old.
Prospect rankings aren't about what a guy is doing today. It is about what a guy is going to do in the Major Leagues one day. That is why scouts are paid to do their job instead of just letting someone look at a stat sheet. In the minor leagues there is a lot more to projecting a player forward than looking at his numbers. Yes, they do mean something. But unlike in the Major Leagues, they don't tell anywhere near the entire story.
