Several Astros Make Top Prospect Lists From John Sickels And FanGraphs

J. Meric

Several Astros make prospect lists that have come out this past week from FanGraphs and John Sickels of Minor League Ball.

The past few days three more prospect lists came out. On Monday Marc Hulet of FanGraphs released his Top 100 prospects, list on Tuesday Mark Smith released a community consensus list of prospects that included TCB's very own Top 30 prospects list and this morning John Sickels released his Top 150 prospects list. Any disheartened Astros fans perusing this list may find a new sense of encouragement that brighter days are ahead.

Rankings left out on purpose so you visit their site.

John Sickels

Minor League Ball Top 150 Prospects for 2013 - Minor League Ball
By John Sickels

Prospects Top 100: Carlos Correa, Jonathan Singleton, Lance McCullers, George Springer, Delino DeShields

Prospects Top 101-150: Jarred Cosart, Nick Tropeano, Jonathan Villar

Others in picture: Mike Foltynewicz and Rio Ruiz

Comment: Five in top 100, eight in top 150 and two just on the outside looking in. I asked John about why he liked Tropeano over Folty:

I actually like Folty quite a bit and gave him a Grade B in my book. I put Tropeano ahead due to a greater amount of polish, but there's nothing wrong with Folty at all.

We actually have had a bit of debate on TCB over who was better between Folty and Tropeano. I remember being in the minority on Tropeano so I'm more than happy to welcome John to my side.
