Kevin Goldstein has posted his rankings of shortstop prospects over at Baseball Prospectus. http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=6574
Has this to say on Rangers prospects:
9. Elvis Andrus, Rangers
Hitting: .244/.330/.335 at High-A (99 G, Carolina League); .240/.321/.280 at High-A (6 G, California League)
Scouts still love the tools, but the high praise for Andrus as a player is down from where it was two years ago, when he was the talk of the Gulf Coast League. Yes, he's exceedingly young, but at the same time, he's never put up good numbers. His approach is advanced for his age, and he's a very good runner, but he's shown almost zero ability to drive the ball, and scouts no longer speak of any kind of power projection. Defensively, he has excellent range and a rocket arm, but is still prone to the usual inconsistency one finds in teenage infielders, being charged with 28 errors on the season. Andrus has always been the subject of much hype--some of it justified, some... not so much.
Keep An Eye On
Marcus Lemon, Rangers: Yes, this is Chet Lemon's son, who signed for $1 million as a fourth-round pick last year. He has tools and athleticism and makeup, and after a slow start at Low-A Clinton, Lemon is still hitting just .260/.347/.339, but you can up that to .293/.370/.378 in his last 60 games.
not exactly rave reviews for Andrus, but he is in the top 10.... nice to see Lemon mentioned.
