    Remember Thompson is on the list, and I'd suggest Negron doesn't fit your criterion either. Obviously a lot of others will play in the ML, though their individual "chances" may be less than 50/50.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #15 prospect?

    Of the 20 on the list currently, I'll take your bet as to 50%+ being major league players.

    Arias, Barnhart, Duran, LaMarre, Perez, Rodriguez, and either Soto or Torreyes all have the combination of penache, position, and production to be given a shot, even if it is a cup of coffee in the bigs.

    Thompson has already made it, and Johnson, Correa, and Corcino all also have the stuff, as does Lotzkar.

    I'd bet the under.

    LaMarre.

    Other than the ones on the board who have already had a taste of the majors, he's the one that has shown the most at the highest level still available (other than maybe Dorn who figures to be a platoon player).

    I have to say, this year's list feels deeper than last.

    I guess you misunderstood. I didn't have question mark. It was a statement. We are at 15. If Lotzkar wins (as he should ), look at the guys still on the board:

    I think this is VERY deep.

    Oh well yeah I did misread it. I guess I'm just not as enthusiastic about some of the guys already voted in. I felt better about last years crop and the depth IMO wasn't hurting at all.

    Thanks. I did notice Thompson, and he does have a higher ceiling than LeCure (who doesn't, lol), but I just don't know enough about his injury to say he's better than 50/50 to stick in the majors. Maybe he is, I don't have access to that info.

    I also am not an expert on minor leaguers, so I am just going on what I know, which is very limited. I am sure if I spent the time that many here do, reading scouting reports and even watching these guys play, I would have different opinions. Which is why I think the Redszone minor league forum is the best baseball forum in the country, hands down.

    Seven out of the 20 from 2010 made some contribution to the majors last season, and that's before Chapman was added. Wow, that's much more than I ever expected.

    I'll reserve judgement on the two list's depth until the second one is complete, but as of now, they both look very deep.

    Correa for me. He's right up there with Guillon in my mind, and Lotzkar still scares me.

    Valaika at #14?
