    Default Updated Pirates Top 10 Prospects from Callis

    "By Jim Callis
    August 23, 2010

    ...an updated Pirates Top 10 would look dramatically different than it did at the start of the season. Here's how I see it:

    1. Jameson Taillon, rhp
    The next Josh Beckett signed for a franchise-record $6.5 million.
    2. Stetson Allie, rhp
    He and Taillon had the two best arms in the 2010 draft.
    3. Tony Sanchez, c
    Broken jaw in June has been lone setback for 2009 first-rounder.
    4. Luis Heredia, rhp
    Projectable 6-foot-6, 185-pounder already throws 92-93 mph.
    5. Starling Marte, of
    Speedster has hit .319/.388/.432 in full-season ball.
    6. Jeff Locke, lhp
    Part of the Nate McLouth trade, he has a solid four-pitch mix.
    7. Andrew Lambo, of
    Former Dodgers No. 1 prospect just arrived in the Octavio Dotel deal.
    8. Bryan Morris, rhp
    Flashes a low-90s fastball and downer curve; needs to stay healthy
    9. Chase d'Arnaud, ss/2b
    Not having his best year, but profiles as a steady middle infielder.
    10. Rudy Owens, lhp
    He keeps succeeding with very good command of fringy stuff."

    Callis is always huge on ceiling and doesn't care too much about floor. BA also tends to lean heavily towards the whole "shiny new toy" side of things, so the top of his list isn't surprising.

    Interesting that he (apparently) would have had Jeff Locke as the #1 pitching prospect in the system pre-signing deadline. I think I actually agree from what I've seen. Stuff-wise he's a step above Owens or Wilson, and it's pretty close with Morris. I think he might have one more pitch with above average potential than Morris, though.

    It's nice seeing 3 starting pitchers on that list in the upper minors. Maybe we have some hope on the horizon.

    Callis is on crack...Morris below Heredia...a 16 year old?
