2013 Summer Draft

Pick 3.26: Ian Clarkin, SP, HS - Ian is a player who I assumed would be gone at this point in the draft, so I was only too happy to be able to trade up and get him. Clarkin features one of the best curve balls in the draft along with a nice fastball already. A front of the rotation type prospect, Clarkin immediately slots in behind Stephenson as the second best starting pitcher prospect in the organization at the time of his drafting.

Quote from: minorleagueball
The best I saw him was with a 94 MPH fastball and a potential plus-plus breaking ball at 72-75 MPH. It looked unhittable and unfair at times. It's elite level when on. His fastball was more consistently 90-91 that he works down in the zone with good movement. His changeup is in the 77-80 MPH range and there is no reason it couldn't become an average pitch or better. It was hard to pick up and had some fade. He controls all three pitches well and should have average or better command.

Projecting Clarkin to have a 91-92 MPH fastball, a plus breaking ball and an average change to me is the low end of his potential and that would be a good #3 starter. I could see him better than that in the future and he could be a #2 starter if he commands all three pitches well and sits 92-94. That could be very likely. He has higher potential than many in the draft, though a lot of it depends on command and that curveball. He is one of my favorite arms in this class and could be a top 15 pick, if not higher with a good spring.

Pick 3.27: Robert Kaminsky, SP, HS - I like Kaminsky as much for his stuff and make-up as I do because of the organization he was drafted by. It's no secret that the RL Cardinals have had great success developing pitching prospects lately, and it's my hope that Kaminsky is the next high ceiling arm to make the climb.

Quote from: bleacherreport
Potential for plus command of three-pitch mix; high baseball IQ gives him knowledge of how to sequence his offerings; outstanding present feel for locating fastball-curveball mix; understands how to attack hitters and make adjustments during the second and third time through the lineup.

Pick 4.25: Jose Peraza, SS, Atlanta Braves Organization - Peraza was the top player remaining on my board at the time of this pick.  A player who will stick defensively at SS, Peraza's best tool is his speed. He's a bit of a gamble due to his utter lack of power, but he's young for his league and has time to fill out his frame.

Quote from: fangraphs
Peraza doesn’t have much power but he has a chance to hit for a high average because he makes good contact and has plus speed. He stole 25 bases in 30 attempts in 2012. A talent evaluator I spoke with called the infielder “an exciting player. He’s a lead-off type of hitter who can really bunt… He’s just starting to put things together.”

Defensively, the young prospect has plus range, a strong arm and good actions. With that said, he still makes youthful mistakes in the field but there is no doubt that he’ll be able to stick at the position. I’m told Peraza suffered from tendinitis in his arm after his promotion to Danville in 2012 and wasn’t 100%. He underwent a strength program during the fall instructional league and the injury was not considered serious. With a strong spring, Peraza could open 2013 in full-season ball and is probably about four years away from challenging Simmons for playing time.

Pick 4.28: Michael Snyder, 1B, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Organization - I drafted Snyder for two reasons:  position scarcity and power. The first reason is never a good reason to draft a player, but man do I like the second reason. He's likely the biggest long shot of any player I've drafted in my two years here, but I couldn't pass on the long ball.

2013 Mid-Season Update

1. Robert Stephenson - SP (Inherited) - Robert is one of the youngest pitchers in Class A ball this year and has been as good as advertised.  He carries a 5:1 K:BB ratio and is striking out 11.5 batters per 9 innings pitched.  Some scouting reports have listed his ceiling as a rotation Ace, and he's making his case to be listed amongst the top pitching prospects in all of baseball.  The current DL stint due to a hamstring issue could be the only thing that keeps him from an aggressive promotion to high-A in the second half.  ETA: 2016
Grade: A-

2. Rougned Odor - 2B/SS (2012 Summer Draft) - Odor is one of only 2 still 19 year old hitters playing at in the Carolina League at this point in 2013, and he's one of the top performers offensively to date.  He ranks 11th among qualified hitters in the Carolina League in wOBA and 10th in wRC+.  He's stolen 19 bases already in 2013, matching his total from all of 2012, and has shown a small increase in his walk rate.  His K rate has also seen a spike, but not to worrying levels.  Scouting reports play up his defense at 2B, citing above-average range and a plus arm that would easily play at SS.  The Rangers current middle infield situation may hold Odor in the minor leagues longer than he'd be there in some other systems, but he's clearly on the rise as far as prospects are concerned.  ETA: 2015
Grade: B+

3. Rymer Liriano - OF (2012 Summer Draft) - Rymer is out - likely for all of 2013 - after undergoing TJ surgery on his throwing arm.  His scouting reports are very positive, citing the possibility of a five-tool, all-star caliber OF, but the risk is still there.  His intro to AA in the second half of 2012 was met with somewhat mixed results, including a 24.3% K-rate along with a 9.7% BB-rate: Both higher than his career averages.  Rymer stole 32 bases across two levels in 2012, but the power that scouts expected him to develop has yet to really show itself, with Liriano only hitting 8 HR in 2012.  If he's game ready by fall, it's likely he'll be sent to the AFL for a second year.  It's almost assured that he'll be sent to AA in 2014 after only spending a half a season there in 2012.  ETA: 2015
Grade: B+

4. Jim Henderson - CL (2013 Winter Draft) - Henderson is putting together a second strong season at the back end of the Milwaukee bullpen.  His K-rate has dropped a tad and so has his BB-rate, but he's still getting the job done against the best in the world.  Given the volatility of relief pitchers, it's hard to rank Henderson any higher than this even given his successes at the big-league level.  ETA: 2014
Grade: B

5. Blake Swihart - C (Inherited) - Swihart is finally putting together the type of offensive season that his athleticism and tools have hinted at.  Playing at high-A this year, the biggest catalyst to Swihart's improvement has been his huge bump in walks while cutting down on his strike-outs.  His game-calling and defense still need refining along the way; but prior to 2013 there was concern that the offense wasn't going to translate.  ETA: 2016
Grade: B

6. Ian Clarkin - SP (2013 Summer Draft) - One of the top HS arms in the MLB draft this year, Clarkin possesses an already good curve-ball to complement a solid fastball.  He's likely facing a longer road to the big leagues than some of the other high draft picks as scouts think his learning curve will be steep in terms of game-planning and pitching through a lineup multiple times in the minor leagues.  However, most agree that his ceiling is that of a number 2 starter with an outside shot of being a rotation ace.  Clarkin has already signed with the Yankees and will not be attending college at this time.  ETA: 2018
Grade: B

7. Robert Kaminsky - SP (2013 Summer Draft) - Another top HS arm in the MLB draft this year, Kaminsky possesses what some scouts have termed, "the best curve-ball in this draft class".  Kaminsky already has a good understanding of game-planning and is a mature presence on the mound, which helps make up for his lack of prototypical pitcher size and projection.  Kaminsky's already solid command has a potential to become plus, and his ceiling is likely that of a number 2 starter.  He has already signed with the Cardinals and will not be attending college at this time.  ETA: 2017
Grade: B

8. Eugenio Suarez - SS (2012 Summer Draft) - Suarez has been aggressively promoted in 2013, beginning the year at high-A for 25 games and then receiving a quick promotion to AA.  Scouts like Suarez's glove and arm to stick at SS for the long haul, but the question has always been whether or not he'll hit enough to start or whether he'll be a utility player.  He's yet to really answer that question, as he doesn't have enough pop in his bat to justify the slowly increasing K-rates over the last 3 seasons (18% in 2011, 19% in 2012, and 20-21% this year).  He continues to show doubles-pop, with 16 on the season, but he needs to cut down on the strikeouts to become a solid all-around prospect.  ETA: 2015
Grade: B-

9. Carson Kelly - 3B (2012 Summer Draft) - Carson was aggressively placed in full season class-A to begin the year and allowed to play everyday despite some offensive struggles.  With short-season ball now in full swing, Kelly has been moved to low-A and is displaying strong patience at the plate in early returns.  A 1:1 K:BB ratio along with a BABIP that should normalize upward both give optimism moving forward.  One of the youngest players from last year's draft class, Kelly is currently still 18, and is likely a handful of years away. ETA: 2017
Grade: B-

10. Jose Peraza - SS (2013 Summer Draft) - Peraza turned 19 during the first month of the season and is playing at class A this year.  He, like Suarez, is a solid defensive bet to stay at SS.  He brings above average to plus range to the table along with a solid arm.  He's stolen 26 bases in 2013 already, flashing above average to plus speed as well.  The biggest question with Peraza will be whether or not he can hit enough to play everyday at the big league level.  He's likely a long-term prospect at this point whose ceiling is that of an everyday defense-first player.  ETA: 2017
Grade: C+

11. Alex White - SP (Acquired in Trade) - White is out in 2013 due to TJ surgery.  Still 24, there is absolutely time for him to rehab and put things together.  The former 1st round pick is a ground ball pitcher, with a heavy fastball, slider, and splitter that is a good out-pitch.  He's no longer the front of the rotation prospect he once was, but - having already made 30 big league starts - there is still a shot for him to be a productive starter at the big league level or be moved into a relief role after rehab, where his ceiling is likely that of a 7th or 8th inning guy.  ETA: 2015
Grade: C+

12. Chris Dwyer - SP (Inherited) - Chris Dwyer was a left-for-dead prospect after 2012 who has a slight pulse left after all.  In his second trip through AAA, he's shown improved peripherals across the board.  Time will tell if this is a blip on the radar for him or if he's starting to put some things together.  He's likely a back of the rotation starter at best, or more likely, a reliever if he makes it to the big leagues.  ETA: 2015
Grade: C+

13. Karsten Whitson - SP (Inherited) - The once top amateur pitcher has fallen on injury ridden times at the University of Florida.  The hope is that his injuries are now behind him, but shoulder injuries are never easy to recover from for a pitcher.  Whitson is most certainly young enough to overcome his two injury filled seasons and regain the prospect form he once had.  Time will tell if he's able to.  ETA: 2016
Grade: C+

14. Anthony Hewitt - OF (Acquired via Waivers) - Hewitt's K-rate is more than enough reason to worry about his viability as a prospect.  However, when he makes contact, Hewitt still makes loud contact and wreaks havoc on the base-paths.  Currently in AA, his likely a AAAA player at best, but the power/speed combination he has a long shot to provide still keep him on the roster.  ETA: 2015
Grade: C

15. J.C. Ramirez - RP (Acquired via Trade) - Ramirez has been converted to a full time reliever and has recently been called up to the big leagues.  He showed modest success in AAA over part of this season, and is likely a long-reliever or middle-reliever at best.  ETA: 2014
Grade: C

Other Grade C Prospects: 16. Michael Snyder (2013 Summer Draft); 17. Tanner Bushue (Acquired via Waivers); 18. Jeff Manship (Acquired via Waivers); 19. Cedric Hunter (Acquired via Trade); 20. Aaron Laffey (Acquired via Trade).

2013 End-of-Season Update
1. Robert Stephenson - SP (Inherited) - Robert came back from a hamstring injury and continued to show that he's an elite pitching prospect moving forward.  After returning from injury, Robert was promoted to High-A ball, made four starts, and was promptly promoted to AA ball for four starts to end the year.  Experiencing a notable hiccup in AA, specifically in his last two starts, it's very likely he starts there next year.  However, I've bumped his ETA up a year considering his end to this year.  ETA: 2015
Grade: A- (Borderline A)

2. Rougned Odor - 2B/SS (2012 Summer Draft) - Odor received a promotion to AA after a really solid first half +, and he showed that his performance was no fluke.  Seeing a normal correction to BABIP, Odor held his walk and strikeout rate in line with his High-A performance levels.  Across the two levels in 2013, Odor hit 11 HR and stole 32 bases while providing solid to slightly above average defense at the keystone corner.  Odor won't turn 20 until near the start of the 2014 season, and would probably garner a real look in any big league camp not run by the Rangers.  Their depth probably keeps him in the minors at least another year unless he makes a real statement early in the spring.  Nevertheless, he's a borderline elite prospect at this time.  ETA: 2015
Grade: A- (Borderline A)

3. Rymer Liriano - OF (2012 Summer Draft) - Liriano missed all of 2013 with TJ surgery in his non-throwing arm.  San Diego expects him to be healthy for the start of the 2014 season.  Rymer has all the tools to be a 1st tier starting RF in the major leagues, but he's yet to consistently display those tools.  An introduction to AA in 2012 provided slightly mixed results.  His AFL campaign in 2012 gave hope for continued improvement.  His ranking reflects that continued potential and the lack of consistent achievement of those tools. ETA: 2016
Grade: B+ (Borderline B)

4. Jim Henderson - CL (2013 Winter Draft) - Henderson is still pitching for the Brewers right now, but we'll include him here as our "minor league season" has ended.  Henderson has seen his K% dip just a little this year but his BB% is right in line with 2012.  His BABIP is definitely out of line, but he's clearly an above average reliever.  The volatility of relievers really keeps Henderson from being bumped higher, but he'll be a welcomed addition to the Royals bullpen in 2014.  ETA: 2014
Grade: B

5. Blake Swihart - C (Inherited) - Swihart finally put together the type of offensive season that his athleticism and tools have hinted at.  His power numbers haven't come around as some thought they would, but his BB rate and K rate both moved in positive directions while being promoted from last year's assignment.  His BABIP suggests a possible normalization next year, but it's likely he'll see a promotion to AA at some point in 2014.  ETA: 2016
Grade: B

6. Robert Kaminsky - SP (2013 Summer Draft) - One of the top HS arms in the MLB draft this year, Kaminsky possesses what some scouts have termed, "the best curve-ball in this draft class".  Kaminsky already has a good understanding of game-planning and is a mature presence on the mound, which helps make up for his lack of prototypical pitcher size and projection.  Kaminsky's already solid command has a potential to become plus, and his ceiling is likely that of a number 2 starter.  Kaminsky spent some time in Rookie ball in the second half of 2013 and saw solid results in his debut.  He's likely ticketed for extended Spring Training/Rookie ball with the possibility of spending the second half in Low A next year. ETA: 2017
Grade: B

7. Ian Clarkin - SP (2013 Summer Draft) - One of the top HS arms in the MLB draft this year, Clarkin possesses an already good curve-ball to complement a solid fastball.  He's likely facing a longer road to the big leagues than some of the other high draft picks as scouts think his learning curve will be steep in terms of game-planning and pitching through a lineup multiple times in the minor leagues.  However, most agree that his ceiling is that of a number 2 starter with an outside shot of being a rotation ace.  Clarkin has already signed with the Yankees and will not be attending college at this time.  I haven't seen that Clarkin pitched in 2013 after being drafted, so he's likely ticketed for extended spring training and Rookie ball next year.  ETA: 2018
Grade: B

8. Jose Peraza - SS (2013 Summer Draft) - Peraza turned 19 during the first month of the season and played at the class A level this year.  He is a solid defensive bet to stay at SS.  He brings above average to plus range to the table along with a solid arm.  He stole 64 bases in 2013, flashing above-average to plus speed as well.  The biggest question with Peraza will be whether or not he can hit enough to play everyday at the big league level.  He's likely a long-term prospect at this point whose ceiling is that of an everyday defense-first player.  ETA: 2017
Grade: B-

9. Eugenio Suarez - SS (2012 Summer Draft) - Suarez was aggressively promoted in 2013, beginning the year at high-A for 25 games and then receiving a quick promotion to AA.  Scouts like Suarez's glove and arm to stick at SS for the long haul, but the question has always been whether or not he'll hit enough to start or whether he'll be a utility player.  Stats show that he worked to control his strikeouts as he adjusted to AA, and he ended the year with a AA K rate nearly identical to his A ball K rate.  He continues to show doubles-pop, with 30 on the season, but I'd like to see him get a second run at AA before getting too excited moving forward.  ETA: 2015
Grade: B-

10. Carson Kelly - 3B (2012 Summer Draft) - Carson was aggressively placed in full season class-A to begin the year and allowed to play everyday despite some offensive struggles.  Once short season ball got underway, Kelly was re-assigned, and showed solidly throughout the second half.  Above average numbers in wRC+ and wOBA provide optimism; as does a solid K rate of around 10% combined with a nearly 7% BB rate.  The lack of any real power is somewhat concerning; Kelly only had 28 extra base hits all year, but he still has time to grown into that.  One of the youngest players from last year's draft class, Kelly only recently turned 19, and is likely a handful of years away. ETA: 2017
Grade: B-

11. Alex White - SP (Acquired in Trade) - White missed all of 2013 due to TJ surgery.  Still 24, there is absolutely time for him to rehab and put things together.  The former 1st round pick is a ground ball pitcher, with a heavy fastball, slider, and splitter that is a good out-pitch.  He's no longer the front of the rotation prospect he once was, but - having already made 30 big league starts - there is still a shot for him to be a productive starter at the big league level or be moved into a relief role after rehab, where his ceiling is likely that of a 7th or 8th inning guy.  ETA: 2015
Grade: C+

12. Chris Dwyer - SP (Inherited) - Chris Dwyer was a left-for-dead prospect after 2012 who has a slight pulse left after all.  In his second trip through AAA, he showed improved peripherals across the board.  Time will tell if this was a blip on the radar for him or if he's starting to put some things together.  He's likely a back of the rotation starter at best, or more likely, a reliever if he makes it to the big leagues.  ETA: 2015
Grade: C+

13. Anthony Hewitt - OF (Acquired via Waivers) - Hewitt's K-rate is more than enough reason to worry about his viability as a prospect.  However, when he makes contact, Hewitt still makes loud contact and wreaks havoc on the base-paths.  Currently in AA, his likely a AAAA player at best, but the power/speed combination he has a long shot to provide still keep him on the roster.  ETA: 2015
Grade: C

14. Michael Snyder - 1B (2013 Summer Draft) - Snyder is a "prospect" who is old for his league and doesn't bring much to the table other than power.  However, that power is real.  It's unlikely he'll ever see that power realized at the big league level, but he's fun to dream on.  He mashed 25 HR in High A ball this year and totaled 63 extra base hits against 85 singles.  He strikes out too much at this point, but we'll see what the future holds for him.  ETA: 2016
Grade: C

Other Grade C Prospects: 15. J.C. Ramirez (Acquired via Trade); 16. Tanner Bushue (Acquired via Waivers); 17. Jeff Manship (Acquired via Waivers); 18. Cedric Hunter (Acquired via Trade); 19. Aaron Laffey (Acquired via Trade).
