Today, Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus released his list of baseball’s Top 101 Prospects. Tyler Matzek and Wilin Rosario were the only Rockies selected — Matzek is 34th and Rosario is 36th.
Meanwhile, ten Royals’ prospects made the cut. Each of the ten has a very bright future — just not with Kansas City.
The Nationals’ Bryce Harper was ranked number one overall. Harper’s only minor league experience came last year in the Arizona Fall League.
The top NL West prospect was the Giants’ Brandon Belt. Belt was ranked 22nd. Even though Goldstein snubbed several deserving Rockies, he did rank Wilin and Tyler as the second and third best prospects in the NL West.
