Minor League Baseball Prospects

Many scouts are sent from Major League Baseball to evaluate minor league baseball prospects. The best players in the big leagues were once minor league players and have spent time in the minor leagues improving and getting their skills ready for the bigger competition that the major leagues provide. The scouts evaluate the players on a lot of different aspects. Since many of the players are from the US, they may have access to a lot of college stats that can indicate more about the player. Some of the players come from other countries, and those league records will allow a scout to identify the best minor league prospects.

Some of the most important statistics to know in order to evaluate a minor league prospect are the statistics. A lot can be learned considering where the players are from, but the numbers give the true package. All players have statistics, baseball is the most statistically heavy sport since everything can be tracked by a number. The most common statistic is the batting average. This stat tells how often a certain player will get a hit and end up on base when they are up at bat. Most of the best players have a batting average that is greater than 300. That means they will get a hit 3 out of 10 times they are up at bat or 30%. This number is usually represented with a decimal point in front of it, such as .300. Other key statistics include the RBI, or the runs batted in, and other information such as stolen bases, walks, strike outs and others.

Most of the pitching prospects are evaluated differently. Pitchers have their own set of important stats that include the ERA or earned run average. This number represents the number of runs that are typically scored against a pitcher in 9 innings, which is the normal game length. There are different types of pitchers, some of whom are called closers. They tend to come in later in the game and ‘close’ the game. By doing this, they earn the ’save’. The number of saves can indicate how good a pitcher is at closing a game.

Minor league baseball players have all of the same statistics as major leaguers do and they are used to determine if they continue playing or advance to the big leagues. The minor league players will be evaluated on their performance using these statistics to see who gets the contracts to move up. Most scouts will evaluate a lot of different players each season. The statistics are the best way to identify these minor league baseball prospects and determine who should get the big contracts.
