Marsh at 43 Nice. i'm kind surprised, i felt he was more around the 50-65 range, but i'll take it. 

if he hits 20-25 hrs this year he's gonna move into the top 20.  I'm about a bees dick less excited for Marsh than I am Adell.  Marsh is a guy I could see winning a batting title at some point.  Like a Michael Brantley type.

Vera's name has been popping on the fringe of being a top 100 in multiple places.

I could definitely see a number of guys jumping into the Top 100. Chris Rodriguez, Jose Soriano and Jack Kochanowicz on the mound. Jordyn Adams, Alex Ramirez and Arol Vera at the plate. 

I'm not as optimistic about Jeremiah Jackson though. Lots of swing and miss, and he's a power hitter leaving a hitter friendly environment into a pitching friendly one.

I agree with you about Jackson.  I wasn't super impressed with his swing before last year as I think we discussed somewhere in the bowels of the previous minor league thread.  His 2019 made me a lot more bullish though but he does have a ton of swing and miss.  hopefully some better pitching will help him gain some experience with pitch recognition.

He's got insane bat speed, and his exit velocities are probably very high for a middle infielder. But the load.... Just because it works for Javy Baez and Bo Bichette doesn't mean it works for everyone. More often than not, that approach doesn't work. 

I have to admit, it worked in the Pioneer League, but with the exception of AAA to MLB, that jump from Rookie Ball to A Ball might be the most difficult to navigate.

I'm don't really get swayed by counting stats so the HR totals didn't really impact my thinking much... But that bat speed is crazy and the amount of power her generates out of that frame is pretty remarkable.  He's not remotely close to being a good hitter yet but he's got some tools you can't really teach.   He has a long ways to go and the swing and miss is problematic but he's the type of toolsy player we can dream on.   From everything I've heard he's a really good kid too.

What a nice swing... I just can't shake the feeling this is the season he puts it all together. The power combined with his plate discipline and hitting. One of the top prospects in all of baseball by the end of the year.

that's purdy.

The guy that has caught my attention in this ranking and last years, has been Sandoval. Him being ranked in the top 150, kind of was a surprise. Plus most ranking have him in the top 10 of our system. Can't wait to see him put it all together!

The truth be told our system is flooded with high ceiling guys.  There are three guys alone I can picture being potential top 100 players by mid-year if their season goes right (not including Adell and Marsh).  If Rodriguez has a strong start and is moved to AA by the all-star break (which BA projects to happen), then he could sneak into the top 100.  His tools are off the charts.  If Adams starts off strong, he'll jump in also.  I also believe Soriano could break into the upper-half of the top 100 with a strong start as well.   Nevertheless I expect at least two of the three to have the type of year, because there are a lot of positives signs with each one.  

By the end of the year I can see us having another three to four guys climb up the rankings.  We could see Jackson, Vera, Kochanwicz, and maybe even Pyris, if he has a big year.  In addition, there are a handful of true wild card guys who the organization holds in high regard but are still very raw.  Guys like William Holmes, Knowles, Treveaux, Daniel, Bonilla, Pina, Placencia, and Steward Aquino.  BA just released a TOP 10 prospect chat for the Angels, and said very complementary things about Holmes, Pina, and Aquino.  

I believe if Eppler really uses this draft to pick high-up side pitchers in the top 4 rounds (obviously not round 2) we could have one of the better systems in baseball next year.  Granted, maybe I am looking a the state of our system very optimistically, because injuries could persist with a lot of these guys and some could just flame out.  But hell, even if half of them pan out then the Angels will have a steady supply of talent coming from their farm beginning with Adell this year.

That kid is still growing....   Trout, Marsh, Adell, Ohtani, Rendon, Fletcher, Rengifo is such an easy core to dream on.....

If the Halos for whatever reason decide to not re-sign Simba, can Rengifo be an effective enough SS?

Jordyn Adams makes Baseball America's Players We Believe Could Make The 2021 Top 100 list..

It's probably unfair, but I expect Adams to make a big jump this year and will be a bit disappointed if he doesn't.  It's unfair because he was already in A+ before he turned 20 and with the way the Halos have been so aggressive with promotions he could be in AA by mid season

Fletch would be SS if Simba is not resigned (just my lame ass opinion).
