    Not a prediction but I will be watching Dalbec very closely. He is a young man with great potential.

    I think he had his breakout last year. I wonder what thoughts are on the players in the system who haven’t done anything yet...

    I'm going to have fun following the development of Casas and Flores. they are just kids but seem to have a great deal of potential. Groome has started to throw again as well. he is too good and too young to be giving up on just yet.

    This system really does need Groome to stay healthy and start planning out...

    I'll be a broken record and say Darwinzon Hernandez.

    The 2018 draft class offers a lot to keep an eye on...I'm looking forward to seeing a full season of Casas, Decker, Northcut, Howlett, Durran, Cottam, Granberg, Shugart, etc. And, of course, whether Feltman can make it to Boston and contribute down the stretch.

    I hope so. Kind of forgot about him, tbh.

    Also, Houck building on his second half success from last season would be huge.

    Now that is a name I haven't heard in a long time. A long time.

    Houck still could factor in.

    I think D Hernandez has the best chance to make a major impact within the next 1.5 seasons.

    I pick Bryan Mata as the prospect who rises the most over the 2019 season.

    Chavis and Dalbec (maybe Shawaryn) might be the first to get a chance and make an impact. There's an outside hope with Feltman late in the season, but I think 2020 is more likely.

    Groome is hard to figure.

    Houck looks to be bound for the pen and may become significant, but I'm not expecting it.

    I'm still thinking our best hopes are with our far away prospects like Casas (18), Mata (19), Flores (18), D Diaz (18), Scherff (20) and Decker (19)/Howlett (19)/Northcut (19)/Jimenez (18)

    Fangraphs' rankings for the system are up (ensuring I won't be very productive this morning):

    I posted elsewhere, but I believe this list is pretty solid. I would be tempted to move Dalbec up, but overall this list is really good. Groome is projected too high elsewhere. I'd be inclined to move Feltman up too.

    My top 10 today:
    Casas
    Hernandez
    Chavis
    Flores
    Dalbec
    Decker
    Houck
    Feltman
    Groome
    Lakins

    Mata would be 11th and some combination of Reyes/Danny Diaz/Howlett/Chatham to round out top 15.

    To me, Chatham is basically Deven Marrero part 2. He's a guy who will make the majors for his defense, but bounce around for a while. He just doesn't have a huge upside of some of the other prospects who may never make the bigs.
