Earlier this week, we had John Sickels’ prospect list. Now Kevin Goldstein pipes in with his top eleven list and unlike Sickels’, we get some cool commentary. They both agree on the top two spots and their top four contains the same names with just three and four flip flopped. Goldstein has Danny Duffy at number five though where as Sickels had him at seven.
Goldstein gives Mike Moustakas a five star rating with Luke Hochevar coming in with four stars. It goes downhill quickly though with only five prospects with three stars or better. The Royals have some potential stars but if they’re going to turn things around, they’re going to have to do some of it via free agency.
John Sickels kicked off his Top 20 lists with a look at the Royals. Checking in at number one is Mike Moustakas with a B+ and Luke Hochevar is right behind him with a B. Things thin out pretty quickly though and you have just four guys with a B rating or better. Billy Buckner, Dan Cortes and Julio Pimentel round out the top five. It is nice to see they’ve made a committment to pitching and eight of the top ten guys are all hurlers. Sickels did revise the bottom five guys on the list after he downgraded outfield prospect Adrian Ortiz.
