BA and Lofgren

Postby artgold » Wed Mar 11, 2009 12:08 pm

In looking over all of the prospects listed on the 2009 BA top 30 listings, not a single prospect fell as far as Lofgren. I did a quick analysis and found that only 14 of the 300 prospects listed as a "top 10" for the team was designated as "dropped out" for this season.

Of these 14 players, 7 had been listed as the 10th best prospect in the respective organization last season. When looking at only the "top 5" prospects, only 2 were listed as "dropped out" from last year's listing, Lofgren (who was a #2 last year) and Jack Egbert (#5 White Sox last year).

Going back another season, I saw that last year 11 of the 300 prospects listed as a "top 10" in 2007 were dropped in the 2008 BA Prospect Handbook. Of these prospects, 7 had been listed as #10 for their organization in 2007, while the others all fell in the #7-9 range.

Lofgren's drop is by far the steepest in the two years that BA has been publishing the "historical" information. I hope he can get his career going again, it would be a great story.

FYI on Lofgren, as I mentioned in today's update showcasing the two Akron groups working out, he is still working out as a starting pitcher in camp. No move has been made at this time to the bullpen, and may not even happen.
