Bucs Dugout Community Prospect #27

Willy Garcia is the Pirates' #26 prospect, collecting 47% of the vote. Garcia, who was ranked all the way up at #11 by mlb.com, does have some impressive tools going for him. He might have the best arm in the entire system. He also has impressive raw power. The problem is that his K:BB ratio last year was 97 to 1. OK, so it probably wasn't that high, but it was high enough (roughly 7) that he's not going to able to succeed at the higher levels without improvement. It's also not a new problem for him. However, if he can make the necessary corrections, he could jump up a lot of lists for next year.

Because there are only a few rounds left, I'm going to put up some extra options to see who will grab the last few spots. This round, I will be adding Edwin Espinal, Jose Osuna, Max Moroff, Adam Frazier, Jon Sandfort and Phil Irwin but if you want to vote for somebody else, you can do so in the comments. As always, there will be a section in the comments where you can still do +1 for "write ins." I'll count up the votes for any omitted player just to make sure we get the winners in the right spots. I'm also still willing to add guys to the next few polls if there are still players that people want to see included, so just let me know!

OK, so the opinion seems to be to stretch the poll out to 30 people. Opening Day is the 31st and that's my personal deadline for finishing. I can't promise that I'll get a new poll up every day but I'll make sure it's done by the 31st. There are still some very interesting guys to rank so keep voting and keep discussing! So far we have:

1. Gregory Polanco

2. Jameson Taillon

3. Tyler Glasnow

4. Austin Meadows

5. Alen Hanson

6. Nick Kingham

7. Josh Bell

8. Reese McGuire

9. Tony Sanchez

10. Luis Heredia

11. Harold Ramirez

12. Andrew Lambo

13. Stolmy Pimentel

14. Clay Holmes
