With the Major League All-Star game being played tonight in Kansas City, it’s officially time to go back and evaluate the first half of the season before looking forward to the second half. I’ve listed below each of the National’s current top 10 prospects (and 2 bonus prospects) and their statistics so far at the level each one is currently playing at. I’ve based my grades on 3 major factors:
Experience – Players fresh out of the draft will get more lenient grades than guys in their 3rd or 4th season as a minor leaguer. Struggling a bit in a player’s first action as a pro is to be expected but when a guy is still having trouble after 2 or 3 full seasons that’s a cause for concern.
