Mariners Listed On More Top Prospect Lists

We have already updated you on a few prospect lists that came out leading up to the 2012 season, including Baseball America and MLB.com.

Much like the college football polls, there are a lot of these, and it can get confusing, but we wanted to pass along a few more to get you excited for the upcoming baseball season.

Baseball Prospectus unveiled their Top 101 Prospects today, and four Mariners were listed:

  • C Jesus Montero (#7)
  • RHP Taijuan Walker (#14)
  • LHP Danny Hultzen (#35)
  • LHP James Paxton (#59)

Additionally, author Kevin Goldstein noted on his Twitter feed that infielder Nick Franklin would also likely be included in the top 125 players.

  • C Jesus Montero (#9)
  • RHP Taijuan Walker (#24)
  • LHP Danny Hultzen (#30)
  • LHP James Paxton (#51)
  • INF Nick Franklin (#57)

Larry Stone of the Seattle Times has a nice write-up on the ESPN.com piece in his Hot Stone League Blog.
