BP's Top 20 Pirates Prospects

Here it is:

 

Five-Star Prospects
1. James Taillon, RHP
2. Stetson Allie, RHP
Four-Star Prospects
3. Luis Heredia, LHP
4. Tony Sanchez, C
Three-Star Prospects
5. Rudy Owens, LHP
6. Bryan Morris, RHP
7. Starling Marte, OF
8. Jeff Locke, LHP
9. Diego Moreno, RHP
Two-Star Prospects
10. Colton Cain, LHP
11. Zack Von Rosenberg, RHP

 

And 12-20:

 

12. Mel Rojas, Jr., OF
13. Zack Dodson, LHP
14. Alex Presley, OF
15. Gorkys Hernandez, OF
16. Chase D'Arnaud, SS
17. Andrew Lambo, OF
18. Nick Kingham, RHP
19. Josh Harrison, INF
20. Quincy Latimore, OF

 

So, the three teenage pitchers acquired at the end of the draft signing period are the top three prospects in the system according to Kevin Goldstein.  Let's compare his list to the Community Prospect List we voted upon here at BD back in September (conveniently also a Top 20 if you include Honorable Mention players):

 

 

1.  Jameson Taillon
2.  Tony Sanchez
3.  Bryan Morris
4.  Rudy Owens
5.  Stetson Allie
6.  Starling Marte
7.  Jeff Locke
8.  Luis Heredia
9.  Andrew Lambo
10.  Zach von Rosenberg
11.  Colton Cain
12.  Justin Wilson
13.  Chase d'Arnaud
14.  Exicardo Cayonez
15.  Mel Rojas

Honorable Mentions: Jarek Cunningham, Brock Holt, Gorkys Hernandez, Diego Moreno, Evan Chambers

 

It looks like we prefer performance to projection, at least compared to BP.  Certainly a couple of big differences; we're higher on Lambo and Cayonez (who doesn't make BP's top 20), whereas Goldstein is higher on Moreno and Dodson (who doesn't make BD's top 20, and never really entered the discussion as I recall).
