Not sure why BA goes out to list KJ Woods as our top 1B option but not put him in the top 10.


Jordan Holloway has a single season of Batavia to his name (decent season though), Isael Soto is 18 and has limited AB's so who knows what he is just yet, Isaiah White was just drafted 3rd round this past season and didn't exactly light the world on fire in the GCL (good contact, very low power), Austin Dean definitely needs a big year in Jacksonville to become a legitimate major league prospect again (will be 23 and only has 1 good season in GBoro to really hang back on), Brian Anderson suffered a big case of the Jupiter blues (.644 OPS) and doesn't have nearly the momentum he had coming off a near .900 OPS in GBoro (although still decent hopes for him).


Garrett and Naylor have been good in super low levels, Kolek is looking worse and worse by the start, and Garcia/Flores don't project as more than #4/5 starters at the major league level (although props to Garcia for stepping up last season. I'll ignore his few poor Jax starts and focus on him looking great in Jupiter this year).


The fact that so many of our top 10 prospects are guys very recently drafted and many of them not even putting up good stats at these low levels is incredibly alarming. Flores and Garcia are probably the only prospects who could probably have any kind of staying power in the majors down the line (although Kolek could magically light the world on fire). The last few drafts have left us with very very little in the system, as basically no players have broken out and become even top 100 prospects. Yes we traded a lot of top prospects to put together the 2015 team, but it's unacceptable to be fielding a system as weak as this one and should lead to some firings within the scouting department.
