LOTD: Baseball America List of Top 100 Prospects in Baseball Released

Baseball America List Top 100 Prospects | Gordon BeckhamToday’s Link of the Day comes to us from the good folks over at Baseball America who, for as long as I have been following baseball, have been churning out annual lists of the best prospects in the game. Earlier today, Baseball America posted their Top 100 Prospects, and much to my excitement the Chicago White Sox made the Top 20.

As you can see in the list broken down below, White Sox 2009 1st Round draft pick Gordon Beckham, a shortstop, came in at #20. Baseball America lists Beckham’s ETA as 2009, which makes sense considering that he is a 22-year old former college player. However, with Alexei Ramirez sliding over to the shortstop for the White Sox this year I wonder where they are expecting Beckham to play.

With 2B still up in the air between Chris Getz and Brett Lillibridge, two solid prospects but who are not on Beckham’s level, I wonder if we could see Alexei slide right back over to 2B to make room for Gordon Beckham this season. I guess we can wait and see how Beckham does the Spring, and how Getz and Lillibridge do, before we promote him to the big league club.

For you other White Sox junkies like me, here are the other White Sox prospects to make the Top 100:

  • #61 – Dayan Viciedo, 3B/OF, Age 20, ETA 2009
  • #63 – Aaron Poreda, LHP, Age 22, ETA 2009
  • #99 – Tyler Flowers, C, Age 23, ETA 2010

For those of you wanting to know the Twins players who made the cut, I’m sure Tyler will break it down for you in a future post (hint, hint Tyler).

And here is the complete list of Baseball America’s Top 20 Prospects in baseball:
