Entering The Top 10

What a difference a year makes! Only Bethancourt remains both in our lists and with the organization. Hale is now a Rockie. Cody Martin is still just as good as he was, but he’s been overcome by events – namely a flood of new talent. Caratini is now in the Cubs’ system. LHP Merejo is now 20 years old and should be returning from an arm injury this year. He’s still a prospect, but will be handled very carefully – possibly in the Gulf Coast League to start out.
As a quick recap, here’s the links to our previous prospect profiles thus far:
