2011 Watchlist and Player Reports

I’ve updated this since last month to include the Rule 5 pickups and the prospects acquired in the trade of Josh Willingham. To drill down, click on the hyperlink above the position or pitcher type.

There you’ll see the players listed with links and more details, which may include a condensed scouting report (which is often an amalgam of an external source along with my opinions) or simply some notes on the player if I haven’t seen the player or he hasn’t been written up elsewhere.

I’m holding back on the pitchers until the books start coming in because I’ve only seen about ten of them for any appreciable amount of time in the past year and because they far outnumber the position players. I’d much rather aggregate what the pros have to say on the ones I haven’t seen (or seen lately) because things can change so rapidly if they make a mechanical adjustment. For example, Marcos Frias, who was markedly better pitcher after coming back from the GCL last season.
