Prospect ratings.

Are there any prospects that you all think are either too low or too high in regards to ratings? I was looking through the Cubs prospects and their top guy, Brennan Davis, is only rated at 60. He has A potential and is expected to make his Major League debut this year, but it may be hard to do so in The Show until heís rated at least in the 70ís.

Re: Prospect ratings.

Ezequiel Tovar, Rockies SS, has D potential. He already plays big league level defense and his bat has started coming around. In A/A+ last year, he slashed .287/.322/.475 with 15 homers and 30 doubles. In spring training this year he hit over .500 in 20 plate appearances with 3 homers and 2 doubles.

If his bat continues to progress like this, he could be the Rockies starting SS next season at 21 years old. At least deserving of B potential.

They did B. Davis dirty. Heís a top 15 prospect in MLB and heís not even in the top 50 in the show. And his power should be better than low 30s or whatever it is.

I donít usually make ratings changes, but I might make an exception. Especially considering heís just about the only decent prospect on the Cubs.

Re: Prospect ratings.

My impression of the "community" or "full minors" players last year was some teams got a lot of love and some got nothing.

It seemed like the people making the rosters were biased in the direction of their favorite team.

Just my impression from looking at the roster.

Yup and those full minor rosters always have higher potential ratings which really screw up progression in the game. It doesnít help also that I donít think any d potential prospects can ever break out and increase their potential

Re: Prospect ratings.

I'd wait till after a sds opening day roster and see if any of it changes. Not counting on it, but it's possible for some changes especially if the club keeps the prospect on mlb roster.

Yeah prospect ratings have been kind of weird. In Brennen Davis' case if you bump his power up to the mid 60's or so on both side that should be a bit closer to his true rating
