    Callis Self 10-Round Drafts, 2003-15

    Here’s my complete list of self 10-round Drafts, dating back to 2003. I like to think I’ve gotten better over time. Through the end of June 2015, I had picked 32 big leaguers (indicated in boldface), not including Luke Hochevar (whom I failed to sign in 2005). My blog post about my 2014 selections is here.

    Close-But-Not-Quite-Top-100 Prospects To Watch

    We released the Top 100 Prospects list on Friday, and as always, there wasn’t enough room to include everyone I like. With that in mind, I’ve listed below (alphabetically) 20 more prospects who have caught my eye, some of whom made my personal Top 100 but couldn’t crack the official list once I combined […] More»

    The AFL Not-Quite-Top-25 Team

    The talent in the Arizona Fall League was better than usual this year — and it’s usually pretty good. As a result, we increased the AFL Top Prospects list from 20 to 25. That still wasn’t enough to include all of the intriguing players I saw in 2 1/2 weeks in Arizona, however. So […] More»

    AFL Prospects To Watch

    If you’re not ready for the baseball season to end after the World Series, the Arizona Fall League is a godsend. Many of the game’s top prospects continue to play through mid-November in Arizona, which made identifying which AFLers I’m looking forward to seeing the most a difficult task because I was limited to just […] More»

    Combining The Cape Lists

    I’ve spent the last two weeks ranking the top 10 pitching prospects and the top 10 hitting prospects in the Cape Cod League. The most prestigious summer collegiate circuit has produced more than 1,000 big leaguers — including more than 200 who have been active this year — and 13 first-round picks in the 2014 […] More»

    Bonus Team USA Prospects: Nos. 11-20

    Give me prospects to rank, and I can’t stop myself from providing extras. I spent the last couple of weeks doing that for the 10 farm systems I handled when we updated’s Prospect Watch, and I’m back at it with the U.S. collegiate national team. As I mentioned in my story where I listed […] More»

    Bonus Rangers Prospects: Nos. 21-25

    In the 10th and final installment of my Bonus Prospects series, I give you the Rangers. Texas has a lot of high-risk/high-reward prospects in its system, epitomized and headlined by third baseman Joey Gallo, and its Top 20 Prospects list already was strong before it acquired right-handers Jake Thompson and Corey Knebel from the Tigers […] More»

    Bonus Giants Prospects: Nos. 21-25

    Much like our Cardinals Top 20,’s Giants Top 20 Prospects list needed more updating even after we overhauled all of the Prospect Watch lists at the end of July. Actually, before we revamped them all, because San Francisco traded Edwin Escobar and Heath Hembree to the Red Sox for Jake Peavy the day before […] More»
