Re: Fangraphs Top 50 Midseason Prospects - Billy Hamilton #37
I think Hamilton belongs somewhere in the 25-35 range, so I'm fine with this ranking for him.
Interesting that Corcino and Cingrani didn't seem to make any of the "experts" top 50. Not saying I strongly disagree, but I'd have to think that both of them belong if pitch as well in the 2nd half as they did in the 1st half of the season. Hard to imagine them being that far behind a guy like Tyler Thornburg. If Stephenson goes to Dayton and continues to impress, he could be in consideration as well.
Speaking of Stephenson (and Cingrani), it's crazy to think that there are 5 pitchers from last year's first round ranked in the top 15 prospects in all of baseball, and that doesn't even include Trevor Bauer who is already in the big leagues. The 2011 draft really might turn out to be the best pitching draft ever.
