Re: Fangraphs Top 50 Midseason Prospects - Billy Hamilton #37
Hulet's list looks a lot like his end-of-season list. Shelby Miller's been bad all year with a case of Steve Blass disease, yet he's #20? Jameson Tallion has had a poor year in High A, yet he's in the top ten? Julio Teheran hasn't pitched well and has been homer prone (plus he can't K anyone). Jacob Turner's also not King anyone, a major red flag as to future major league success.
I'd rank all of those pitchers well below where they are.
As to Hamilton, he's a little low, IMO. (He's around 25th on my list), but, really, there's not that much difference here.
