Not really. There are C prospects in Sickels' rankings that end up quite serviceable. Especially lower level guys.
They've got guys like Chad Rogers, Bryson Smith, and Steve Selsky, for example, who've really outshone their draft position, but have questions because of that same draft position.
They've got guys like Yorman Rodriguez and Neftali Soto who've had very good seasons and high prospect rankings in the past, but struggled last season.
They've got guys like Kyle Lotzkar and Henry Rodriguez, who battled injuries and should be much improved this season (if healthy).
Then they've got wildcards like Tanner Rahier, Seth Mejias-Brean, Gelalich, Reynoso, and other young guys from Dayton and lower.
I love that they have so many C level guys. In fact, one of my favorites-- Juan Perez-- isn't even being analyzed by Sickels.
