THE WHEELER’S TOP 100 Prospects for 2013

I much like many of you have seen the Baseball America Top 100.  I have also seen the Minor League Baseball Analyst Top 100, the MLB.com and various other top 100s and I have decided to create my own.  KEY PHRASE this is my top 100 using my criteria and well to be included in the Top 25 I must see SUPERSTAR Potential.  The rest of the Top 100 25 will be good players some might be All Stars but to me the TOP 25 has to be Cornerstone type talent.  Byron Buxton and Carlos Correa are everyone’s Top 15 on my list they are in the 30s simply because they only have a half season of Pro Ball.  Next year both of these guys could jump in my top 10 easily.  I know I contradict myself with Jorge Soler but let me state my case.  Soler is number 20 had Soler went through the MLB DRAFT like Buxton and Correa he would have easily been the top choice.  Also Homerism might have put Julio Tehran in my top 20 or the fact that looking at his numbers he did face some Strand Rate regression and some babip issues.  It’s hard for me to believe a top 10 pitcher in 2012 is now a top 45 pitcher in 2013, but hey that’s what the National guys did.  Feel free to comment share and most of all enjoy my version of the Top 100 Prospects of 2013
