Baseball Prospectus Releases ‘Mid-Season Top 50 Prospects’ List

Jason parks of Baseball Prospectus released his Prospects Will Break Your Heart: Mid-Season Top 50 Prospects list today and in it we see movement from the following Padres properties:

Austin Hedges: From #19 to #13

Max Fried: From #61 to #47

Joe Ross: Honorable mention – in top 75. [h/t Drakos]

Yes? Yes!

Hedges and Fried (or Ross) could have been the battery for UCLA in last night’s College World Series championship game. Sorry UCLA, I’m not sorry.

I asked Jason about Rymer Liriano who’s on the shelf with Tommy John surgery:

    Another good (but not surprising) comment was that Joe Ross would probably be in the top 75 after not being in the top 101 before the season.

  • Sac Bunt Melvin

    When’s the last time the Padres had someone listed that high? Burroughs?

    I’m surprised all 3 of those guys have moved up … they’ve all done OK, but certainly below my “hopes” … Joe Ross was doing good, until he got hit hard in the MWL All-Star Game and his next start afterward …
