Hey guys, were halfway through through the season in the SAL, 70 games down and 70 to go.  It’s been a fun ride so far.

I’m introducing a new annual feature at Notes. Here’s my 1st annual Mid Season Sally top 20 prospect list.

If I’ve written about the player I will include the link. Cheers

Rodgers vs Robles is a tough call, two very talented players, many people would have the order reversed.  For me it comes down to Rodgers power potential. Would you rather have potential 310-25-10 in the middle infield or potential  310-10-40 in center.  I’ll take the middle infield power but there’s no wrong answer here.

There’s a gap after 4 and after 10.

Touki was difficult to place, his range of outcomes are enormous he could be up with Tate and Espinosa in a couple of years or outside the top 200.

20-21 I haven’t seen yet, I’m confident they’re top 25 talent but I can’t rank them or write about them until I see them.

There are pitchers who had very good 1st halves that I didn’t get to see but might have been top 25 material.  Patrick Weigel and Pedro Payano are good examples of this.

I tinkered with the order for a few hours but at some point you just have to submit it.

    1. Conlon I didn’t see, Riley didn’t make my list and Acuna I forgot to add him at the end I hadn’t seen him yet but I’m confident he’ll make the list when I do. So now he’s #21 thanks for the reminder.

      1. Thanks! I’ve seen Conlon twice including the game he pitched 10 innings in under 100 pitches, he’s got a great changeup. I think Ocuna might still be on the DL but he was definitely impressive last year.
