Prospects In Perspective

Baseball America just came out with their list of Top 100 prospects for 2010. Good news! Ike Davis and Jason Knapp both made the cut. Here is where they fell on the list:

Ike Davis - 62
Jason Knapp - 64

Baseball America ranked Knapp as the 4th best prospect (2nd best pitching prospect) in the Indians' farm system.

As of November of 2009, Baseball America had Davis as the 4th best prospect in the Mets' farm system. However, in the Top 100 list, only 1 Mets prospect was ahead of Davis. I think it's safe to assume he is now considered their 2nd best prospect.

Here are some other players who made Baseball America's Top 100 list in previous years:

Aaron Poreda - 63 in 2009
Ryan Braun - 26 in 2007, 49 in 2006
Jason Hirsh - 42 in 2007, 52 in 2006
Ian Kinsler - 98 in 2005
Jason Marquis - 92 in 2001, 89 in 1999
Gabe Kapler - 34 in 1999
Shawn Green - 6 in 1995, 28 in 1994, 47 in 1993
Mike Lieberthal - 67 in 1993
Scott Radinsky - 78 in 1990

I've heard Ike Davis's name crop up in several blogs I've read concerning the Indians. He may have his chance this year if the current Indians staff comes up badly.
