    JUNE 2019 PRE-DRAFT TOP 30 PROSPECTS (new thread!)

    UPDATING: Mike Siroka (3rd) and Max Fried (10th) are now or soon will be past the prospect stage as their MLB status is assured.
    Gone are, since August, Braves DFA'd Ricardo Sanchez (then 30th) then sent him to Mariners for "cash considerations" and has done well at Class AA Arkansas. Lucas Herbert (then 26th) was cut by Braves at the end of spring training and has signed with Washington in the Frontier League. Dustin Peterson (18th) was waived by Braves in September, claimed by Detroit and is hitting .227 in 17 games for Detroit.
    Among the Honorable Mentions, John Curtis was released in March and not picked up. Brad Roney remains on the injured list. He has not pitched since 2017. Kyle Kinman is now pitching in the American Association.
    INJURED: Luiz Gohara (16th) has yet to pitch in 2019 with shoulder issues. CJ Alexander (24th) is out 6-8 weeks after having a long-lingering elbow chips issue cleaned. NOT Tommy John surgery. AJ Graffanino (29th) had one at-bat for Florida before going on the DL in late April.

    Even before Tuesday’s, I would not have had Allard so high. His velocity is at least as concerning as Soroka’s injury.

    Yeah I....cannot agree with this list. I have already said that Kolby Allard is an old schooler's dream even though he's likely not going to live up to what he was originally billed for, but he's not #2 at all and I believed that even before that start he made.

    If you include Soroka (I didn't when I did my for fun list as I considered him as graduated but I'll now include him and Fried), this is what my top 15 is (it might be different from my list I posted then):

    1. Mike Soroka
    2. Touki Toussaint
    3. Kyle Wright
    4. Ian Anderson
    5. Drew Waters (very high on him, he doesn't have Pache's defense but before he was promoted he was posting one of Rome's best seasons in a long time, not over Pache in any list but I think he will be after next year)
    6. Cristian Pache (having a very credible season after making swing adjustments but he has questions since his plate discipline tanked after moving up to A+)
    7. Bryse Wilson
    8. William Contreras
    9. Austin Riley
    10. Max Fried
    11. Joey Wentz
    12. Kolby Allard
    13. Luiz Gohara
    14. Kyle Muller
    15. Freddy Tarnok

    I gotta be honest, this is tough but I go upside over results and safety 10 times out of 10. I think this system is still pretty excellent through 20 and there are some sneaky players past then.

    Mike Soroka is the old schooler's dream that is much more likely to work out.

    Edit: How the heck did I forget about Gohara, let me change that.

    Aggression with prospects is fine, but being stupid is not. There should be a way to find a happy medium between a Pirates like idea of being overly cautious with prospects and going stupidly fast with prospects.

    There is just no way that I put Kolby that high. I'm not sure I would have him in my top 12 at this point. My top 10 would go something like this:

    1. Toussaint
    2. Soroka
    3. Wright
    4. Pache
    5. Anderson
    6. Riley
    7. Waters
    8. Gohara
    9. Fried
    10. Contreras

    After that I would likely go Wentz>Wilson>Allard>Muller>Jackson

    Fried is no longer a prospect. Gohara needs 1.1 more IP and he’ll be off the list. I’d go

    1. Soroka
    2. Anderson
    3. Touki
    4. Pache
    5. Wright
    6. Riley
    7. Waters
    8. Wilson
    9. Contreras
    10. Gohara
    11. Wentz
    12. Muller
    13. Allard
    14. Tarnok
    15. Jenista

    No 2018 picks on there yet? You know your system is strong when you don't want to figure out how to add more guys to your lists.

    Waters is shooting up lists. I think him and Pache have a chance to be top 20 prospects by this time next year.

    ^Allard has to be plummeting down that new list, right?

    Tried to answer most concerns with this new list from 8-20. Got to see more from Beck, but Weigel has shown me he has recovered.

    I still don't understand how you have Allard over guys like Riley, Contreras, and especially Waters/Pache. Even if you are unreasonably high on Allard, I think having him that high is tough to reason.

    I've pushed the Pache narrative and now the Contreras one. Seriously as good of a catching prospect we've had in ages.
