Mayo's Top 50 Prospects
2005 Club: Toledo/Detroit ETA in Majors: 2005 Preseason Rank: 50
Granderson continues to quietly get it done in his first season of Triple-A. At least the Tigers noticed; Granderson played very well in a six-game callup in July.
2005 Club: Buffalo (Triple-A) ETA in Majors: 2006 Preseason Rank: --
This guy was just born to hit; Garko keeps improving each month in Buffalo. Look for him at a big league park near you by September.
2005 Club: Erie/Toledo ETA in Majors: 2006 Preseason Rank: --
He's 20, he leads the Minor Leagues in strikeouts, he pitched in the Futures Game and seems to have no problem with Triple-A (.208 batting average against). Need I say more?
2005 Club: Memphis/St. Louis ETA in Majors: 2005 Preseason Rank: --
Reyes' strong season in Triple-A was rewarded with a one-start trip (and win) to the Majors.
2005 Club: Philadelphia/Scranton ETA in Majors: 2006 Preseason Rank: 14
Scouts still like his stuff -- and he's still only 22 -- but the results have been confounding. He was much better in July, though, and can salvage the season with a strong finish.
2005 Club: Daytona (A Advanced) ETA in Majors: 2007 Preseason Rank: 40
It's been an up-and-down season for the slugging first baseman, with his power taking an FSL hit as he struggles late in the year.
2005 Club: Asheville (A) ETA in Majors: 2008 Preseason Rank: 26
Nelson seems to be coming on strong after missing most of the first two months of his first full season due to injury.
2005 Club: Jacksonville (Double-A) ETA in Majors: 2006 Preseason Rank: --
After a slow start, the 21-year-old has hit over .300 in the past three months.
2005 Club: Akron/Buffalo ETA in Majors: 2006 Preseason Rank: --
He's carved up International League hitters over eight starts (.220 batting average against) since being promoted and he won't turn 22 until December.
2005 Club: Peoria (A) ETA in Majors: 2006 Preseason Rank: --
The 2003 first-rounder continues to grow into his power, leading the Midwest League with 21 homers and 86 RBIs in his first look at full-season ball.
