Prospect Watch 2012

Jenifer Langosch/ has unveiled its list of top 20 Cardinals prospects heading into 2012, and it’s no surprise that the group is headlined by right-hander Shelby Miller. Rounding out the top 5 are righty Carlos Martinez, outfielder Oscar Taveras, right-hander Tyrell Jenkins and third baseman Zack Cox.

You can find the full Top 20 list (with projections on when each player will be in the Majors) here, and an accompanying story here.

Also,’s Draft guru Jonathan Mayo put together an interesting look at the future of the NL Central. In this piece, Mayo put together an NL Central all-prospects team. The Cardinals were represented well, too. Both Miller and Martinez made the cut in the five-man starting prospect rotation. Infielders Wong and Cox were also deemed the best prospects at their position in the division.

Enjoy taking a look into the future.

Hey….just reading several of your postings. Really enjoyed the facts of
“Inside the Numbers” as I’ve always wondered about the details of some of
these contracts. Good stuff….Welcome to Cardinal Nation.

The styles you’re using on this blog make it nearly impossible to determine linked text. Could you have links underlined, or at least bolded? It’d be a great help!

I added an underline to the links in today’s blog post. I’ll try to remember to do that moving forward. Hope that helps some.
