Tyler Glasnow, Harold Ramirez rank high on prospect lists

New, 54 comments

Baseball America ranked Pirates outfield prospect Harold Ramirez first on its list of the top 20 prospects in the New York-Penn League, while RHP Tyler Glasnow ranked second in the South Atlantic League.  (Both articles require a subscription.)  The two were the only Pirates minor leaguers to make the lists for these two leagues.

Ramirez ranking that high was a little surprising, as many scouts supposedly believed the Pirates overpaid when they signed him for $1.05M out of Colombia.  He probably gets a lot of credit for being only 18.

It's probably not a good sign that Josh Bell failed to make the SAL list.
