    1. The 1B-only profile is difficult to rank, as he has to reach his peak offensively to touch his ceiling. There is very little room for error. With that being said – I love him and think that he will be an excellent hitter.


    1. I had 8 other Colorado Rockies and I think that Rodgers and Wall are better long-term at 2B/SS than Story will be. Also, his first go-round in AA (2014) plus his 68:16 K:BB upon his promotion to AAA show that he’s going to need time upon his promotion to figure things out, but teams don’t really have time to allow players to adjust at the Major League level, and the Rockies didn’t let Tim Wheeler do it several years ago. He’s good, but he isn’t even a top 10 prospect in the Rockies system, in my opinion.


    1. If you’re talking Dillon, he’ll be a couple of years but is just outside of this list. I’d like to see how he does in AA considering his low-level collegiate setting. He has incredible stuff, but the Rangers have failed before with a guy from a small college in the early first round (Choice, Michael).
