2010 Draftees Get Scant BA Love

12

Baseball America has started publishing its yearly league-by-league Top 20 Prospects lists and the early returns for the Halos... ain't so good. Only two Halos prospects from of the June free agent draft made the short season rookie league lists: Chevy Clarke (No. 18 in the Arizona League) Daniel Tillman (No. 3 in the Pioneer Leauge) It should be noted that top pick Kaleb Cowart didn't accumulate enough PAs to qualify for the list, and I'm pretty sure RHP (and fellow first rounder) Cam Bedrosian also lacked sufficient playing time (12 IPs before getting shut down). But still, with five out of the first 50 picks, the Halos were in a position to do better. Evidently, rival AZL managers and BA staffers weren't bowled over by 2B Taylor Lindsay, and they unsurprisingly dismissed Ryan Bolden (sub Mendoza line BA) as a project. Best insight: Due to his "clean mechanics" and development of a change-up, Tillman may get a shot at starting next year. If he put up numbers even close to what he did this year (sub 2.00 ERA, 13+ SO/9) as a starter, that would be special.
