BA published their top 10 prospects today. As expected Ricky Tiedemann tops the list.

He is followed by Orelvis Martinez, Arjun Nimmala, Brandon Barriera, Addison Barger, Kendry Rojas, Leo Jimenez, Davis Schneider (who I thought was ineligible), Alan Roden and Connor Cooke.

Cooke is obviously the surprise pick in the top 10.

Here are some random notes from the scouting reports. As we have noted, BA thinks Orelvis is headed for second base in the majors. Barriera "added mass at the expense of his athleticism". BA are positive on the improvements made by Barger in 2023. They note he closed some holes in his swing and improved his exit velocities by more than 3 mph.

Kendry Rojas has trouble maintaining a consistent delivery. BA expects that to improve with experience. BA are not convinced that Leo Jimenez's arm is strong enough for shortstop. Cooke has two above average pitches.

More to come...
