Worth noting, 12-20 are not necessarily Two Star Prospects, Goldstein does not assign stars after #11.

System's suckitude aside, I'm real excited to watch Reed next year. He's going to be ****ing good. I have little doubt he will be the Sox closer the next 5+ years.

Comments on the list. Surprised Santiago isn't on it. I'd have Axelrod higher. I'd also have Saladino much higher. Interesting that Jaye made it. Like I said at the time of the trade, intriguing pickup. Very projectable, but far away.

Toolsy OF with huge power and strikeout problems. Pitch recognition is an issue. High upside, but very risky. I like him.

How old is he? What's his projection time to The Show? Hell, what kind of player does he project to be? Corner OF? CF? Utility OF?

CF or a corner OF spot if he grows out of the position. He's 20. 21 upon the start of next season. At least two more years probably three, but he's obviously not even close to a sure thing. Can read about many of these players here. Larry does fine work.
