This year his ERA spiked by 2 points, his k/9 dropped by over 2, and his WHIP was above 1.3.
I still think he is a top 25 prospect i just dont think he is top 5 or 10, like he probably will be, just because he is 19. Idk if other people feel that way but i do.
I really didn't have a problem with the list and I think they got most of the prospects right. The one I don't understand though (maybe it's a minor thing) is most of the year, Myers was rated above Taveras. Now, Taveras is the #3 prospect in baseball. I use this as an example because I fail to see how a player can drop off compared to another player or how another player can suddenly be higher in the rankings if nothing has changed. Is it re-evaluation or what is the deal here?
EDIT: What I mean by "nothing has changed" I meant that from a stats perspective.
