Minor League All-Stars: Midwest League
A couple of days ago, I took a closer look at the South Atlantic League All-Star Game rosters, cross-refrencing with the Top 50 prospects list and the Top 10s by organization and position, all of which can be found on Prospect Watch. Today, we’ll look at the Class A Midwest League in the same manner.
Jake Marisnick, Blue Jays: No. 9 on Blue Jays Top 10
Yordy Cabrera, A’s: No. 6 on A’s Top 10
Matt Szczur, Cubs: No. 8 on Cubs Top 10
Tyler Thornburg, Brewers: No. 9 on Brewers Top 10
That, believe it or not, is it for the Midwest League. According to my scoring system (5 points for Top 50, 3 for Top 10 by position, 2 for Top 10 by organization), that gives the Western Division a 6-2 advantage. It also shows that the South Atlantic League is a little more robust when it comes to “prospects.”
Next up: Florida State League, which has its All-Star Game this Saturday.
