Beau Wright Pitching

This system was one of the top systems as far as prospects go a few years ago, but with the likes 

of future star Morrison and Stanton graduating, and a few busts like Volstad and Skipworth, this system has seen it’s better days, but it’s not the worst in the MLB and should have a couple future major leaguers and the top five guys could make a bigger impact on the team.
YELICH has all the tools and should be a good starting outfielder one season in a few years. He looks like he will be a 20-20 guy and a good starter ETA: End of 2012.


OZUNA could be another guy very similar to Yelich, only with less refined tools, should still be good. ETA: 2014

DOMINGUEZ is a great defender at third base and he should be an average to above average hitter ETA: 2012
FERNANDEZ is the best arm in this system by far and should show it in 2012 in the minors ETA: 2014
RASMUSSEN is a live arm, who I really like and I see him being a pretty good starting pitcher pretty soon and I like him ETA: 2014
JAMES was highly regarded but had a bad year in 2010 and rebounded in 2011 and with his stuff and talent, there is hope for him. ETA: 2013
REALMUTO he looks like a decent hitting catcher who has a good shot at making a good impact on the Marlins ETA: 2014
JENSEN looks like he could be a power hitting outfielder with sneaky speed and could carve out a decent career ETA: 2013
CONLEY is a tough pitcher and has the tools for success, he could be a very good closer, I think EAT: late 2013
MATTISON might see time later this year and though he won’t ever have a high average, I see him as a good OBP and role player ETA 2012

    You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I in finding this topic to be
    really something which I think I might never understand.
    It kind of feels too complicated and extremely
    vast for me. I’m looking forward in your subsequent post, I’ll try to get the hold of it!
